Play Sword Coast Legends on Consoles, Mac, Linux or Windows with your friends online or in an epic single-player campaign.
The party-based RPG Sword Coast Legends features a real-time Dungeon Master mode that works seamlessly with players from all platforms.
We’re pretty psyched about Sword Coast Legends. Dungeons & Dragons has a huge influence on all video games, especially fantasy adventures with a party of heroes traipsing around the wilderness, but Sword Coast Legends takes that a step further by allowing a Dungeon Master to craft the experience for his or her party. Today, our partners n-Space and Digital Extremes have sweetened the deal even more by letting console players into the party. Sword Coast Legends is slated to come out on PC, Mac and Linux on September 8th and later on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
"Getting as many D&D players as possible into our current storyline is always our focus," said Nathan Stewart, brand director of Dungeons & Dragons. "With Sword Coast Legends being available on so many platforms, it doesn't matter if you game on a couch or at a desk—you'll be able to join your friends for some glorious D&D dungeon delves."
It was cool to learn that award-winning composer Inon Zur has signed on to write the game’s soundtrack—you may recognize some of the games he’s worked on like Dragon Age: Origins, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, Icewind Dale II, Fallout 3, and EverQuest. Combine Zur’s evocative music with the release on so many platforms and it’s easy to see why we’re not the only ones who are excited for Sword Coast Legends. The video gaming press really dug everything they saw at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this Spring and we can’t wait to show them more at E3 next week.
"After we announced and demonstrated Sword Coast Legends to overwhelmingly positive response at GDC, the press, partners, and fans all requested more," said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends. “They wanted Mac, so we're doing it. They wanted Linux, so we're doing it. They clamored for console... so we circled back, worked with Unity, and figured out how to do it without compromising our vision for PC gamers. This, in addition to our existing PC, Mac and Linux versions, ensures gamers will be able to have the D&D experience whenever, wherever and however they want."
