Dungeons & Dragons Does Digital Download With Daggerdale

The battle for the Forgotten Realms goes digital with Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale, a downloadable multiplayer dungeon crawler coming to Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, and PC next year from Atari and Bedlam Games.

Dungeons & Dragons Online is lovely, but I've always had a different vision for an online version of Dungeons & Dragons. I grew up playing prepackaged D&D modules (along with the odd custom adventure), so the idea of a quick downloadable adventure I can run through alone or with a few friends is extremely appealing to me. Perhaps Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale is a step in that direction.

Set in the classic Forgotten Realms world, Daggerdale pits players against the evil Zhentarim organisation as it attempts to invade and conquer the Dalelands, which is something the Zhentarim do pretty consistently. Up to four players will explore the mysterious Mines of Tethyamar and the treacherous Tower of the Void on the way to a final confrontation with the Zhentarim forces' leader Rezlus.

"The Dungeons & Dragons franchise remains a priority for Atari as we continue to build upon the ever-evolving narrative with Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale" says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. "As the first D&D cross-platform digital download title we look forward to expanding the franchise to a growing gaming audience."

It looks like a hell of a lot of fun, even if the graphics are a little on the simplistic side. All we need now is persistent leveling and the promise of more "modules" to come and I'll be a happy camper.


    could be fun like those capcom arcade dnd games...

    There's a lot of potential with PC gaming, a whole lot more than anywhere else. More creativity, more intelligent discussion, more timelessness that can be always seen as "crazy". As gamers, we must face our tragedies head on, and become the human shield that stem the tides of Darkness from where they come, and to see truth in the matters of days ahead.

    Time is our only currency, and taking a look at RPG's and how fleeting opportunities are to be taken seriously become astoundingly omnipresent to our social stigma.
