The upcoming Forgotten Realms with Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance are coming up before the end of this month. So the developers of Tuque Games looked at the battles and characters. in more detail The longer battle trailer posted today gives a rather action-packed look at each character’s many special abilities and dice-and-dice combos. I’m always up for an action RPG, especially with co-op, where examples are plentiful too.
Tuque Games has released a new battle overview trailer today. Which, for some reason, is narrated by Flight of the Conchords’ man Jemaine Clement if you can avoid being distracted by his alluring enthusiasm. You̵7;ll see a mix of basic attack lines and bigger skills from all four characters. smashing a lot of hammers and parrying
The trailer actually has a way of distorting the feel of the play. The developers got together for a livestream last month to showcase each character’s battles and abilities in a deeper dive. If you skip to the 23 minute mark here, you can catch them walking past a few combos. It shows the gamepad button on the right side of the screen.
They also received additional specifics, such as the difference between attacks that use normal stamina, which heal rather quickly. and attacks that shorten your Stamina Meter. To restore it, you’ll need to drink a Stamina potion or pull out successful Parries.
Overall, it looks pretty fast and supports the occasional crazy button press. Combining impressive combos is always good. But sometimes you get caught doing a light attack in a corner while your friend does the heavy lifting. Anonymous seems to be able to get away from that from time to time. Thanks to many different attack lines.
The only question for me is whether or not I will have to fight my teammates to play Catti-brie the archer.
Tuque Games also took a quick look at the post-launch roadmap today. They are planning two free DLC packs with new levels and difficulty levels for this summer and fall. They will also be launching the “Echoes Of The Blood War” expansion with new playable characters in the fall. to Additionally, they previously announced plans to add co-op in split-screen space after launch. Because people were quite disappointed to hear that it wasn’t an option in the first place.
Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance launches June 22nd on Steam as one of the first 10 June games we look forward to.
