Created by Unreal Tournament and The Darkness II studio Digital Extremes, in conjunction with n-Space, Sword Coast Legends sticks to its tabletop roots with four human players co-operating together in an adventure managed in real-time by player-controlled Dungeon Masters.
The assigned Dungeon Master even has the tools at their disposal to help players out and advance the story rather than attempting to force an end-game scenario. The DMs will then rewarded and granted a high rating for interesting adventures, making the best DMs highly sought after.
Gameplay for the adventurers meanwhile will be classic D&D, with tactical party-based combat and the opportunity to level your character up. The plan is to expand the possible scenarios with additional DLC modules to expand the Sword Coast universe.
