Digital Extremes the makers of Warframe and n-Space have announced that Sword Coast Legends will launch on the PC, Mac and Linux on October 20th next month. The game has been pushed to the early first quarter of 2016 for the Xbox One and PS4.
It’s funny seeing games that were generally made to be PC exclusives arrive on PC first and the console versions get the lacking and belated versions six months to a year later; no mod support, no hacks, no cheats and paid-for multiplayer.
The news recently went out that Sword Coast Legends release date has been pushed back for October after the game had a notable showing at PAX Prime. Dan Tudge, the president of n-Space and director for Sword Coast Legends commented about the news, saying…
“When we set out to create Sword Coast Legends we wanted to give players an exciting new way to experience the magic of playing D&D with friends,”
“The decision to delay the launch of Sword Coast Legends was not an easy one to make, but after receiving feedback from our dedicated community, it became clear that a few more weeks of polish would provide our customers with the best possible experience at launch.”
They currently have a Head Start program for the title where those who pre-order the game have been given early access to the title at specific times and have also been made eligible to receive free bonus DLC. In fact, those who participated in the Head Start program will receive the Rage of Demons DLC for free.
The game is a throwback to the old-school cRPGs that ruled the late 1990s on PC. You can get an idea of what the game features with the trailer below.
Take a quick look at the various features found in Sword Coast Legends, available on PC, Mac and Linux on September 8th 2015!
The isometric, multiplayer role-playing title lets players create their own character, loot new gear, go on quests and even partake in a virtual tabletop adventure where a dungeon master creates an obstacle course for other players to fight through.
Given the resurgence of the isometric, computer RPGs this game has a decent chance of selling some strong numbers with the core audience, especially if Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity are anything to go by.
The game will be Steam Machine-ready when it goes live at the end of October. You can learn more about Sword Coast Legends by hitting up the game’s official website.
