Dungeons & Dragons fans who just can’t get enough fantasy action at the tabletop can satisfy their craving for thrilling combat on June 22 when Wizards of the Coast launches Dark Alliance. This explosive action roleplaying game builds on the deep lore of the Forgotten Realms for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One Consoles and Xbox Series X|S. Dark Alliance features real-time combat and dynamic co-op gameplay against iconic D&D monsters. The game is developed by Tuque Games, which WotC acquired in 2019.

Fight iconic D&D monsters with friends

Preorders for the Digital Edition of Dark Alliance start today for $39.99 at DarkAlliance.com or the standard edition and retail-exclusive Steelbook edition for $59.99 at select retailers. The latter includes a Steelbook case, printed art book, downloadable D&D soundtrack, Beholder and Lich weapon sets and the Echoes of the Blood War expansion. All Dark Alliance preorders come with an exclusive Beholder weapon set at launch.

“Dark Alliance marks an important milestone for us as the first Dungeons & Dragons video game to be published by Wizards of the Coast. We’re excited to expand beyond the tabletop and deliver a brand new type of D&D experience to long-time fans and new audiences when the game launches this June.”

Chris Cocks, President, Wizards of the Coast

Dark Alliance pits the infamous Drizzt Do’Urden and his legendary companions Catti-brie, Bruenor and Wulfgar against Frost Giants, Beholders and White Dragons who roam the frozen tundra of Icewind Dale in search of the Crystal Shard. These companions have to muster the strength to stop them from claiming the legendary artifact and destroying their home.

Four players can participate together online for dynamic co-op experiences fighting iconic D&D monsters in explosive real time combat with devastating combos and team up moves to conquer impossible challenges. Each of the four distinct heroes adds their unique playstyle along with customization options. Completing missions and defeating powerful boss monsters unlocks new character skills and gear.

“Dungeons & Dragons is the reason I became a game developer; it’s a lifelong dream realized to be able to create something that is fun to play over and over again with your friends. Since announcing the game, we’ve worked to bring these iconic characters and monsters to life in a stunningly beautiful and fully realized world that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of combat encounters in D&D.”

Jeff Hattem, Tuque Games studio head

PlayStation 4 users who purchase Dark Alliance get a free digital download code to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and vice versa. Similarly players who preorder on Xbox One Consoles or Xbox Series X|S only have to buy the game once to receive it on both platforms through Smart Delivery. Check out the Dark Alliance site to learn more about the game here.

Fans of Dungeons & Dragons seeking to experience thrilling and chilling adventures in Icewind Dale in the tabletop RPG experience can feel the cold touch of death in Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden.
