About the Game
 
Set in the lush and vibrant world of the Forgotten Realms, Sword Coast Legends offers an all-new way to enjoy the time-tested magic of playing Dungeons & Dragons as a shared storytelling experience. With a deep narrative developed by a team of long-time industry veterans and a partnership with Wizards of the Coast, the single player campaign of Sword Coast Legends brings the world of Faerûn home like never before.
 
Sword Coast Legends also brings the roleplaying dynamic between players and Dungeon Masters to life with DM Mode, a first-of-its-kind real-time experience in which Dungeon Masters guide players through unique customizable adventures. In DM Mode, the Dungeon Master engages players and empowers them to have fun in a way that suits the party best while creating a tailored, non-adversarial 4 with 1 experience that any RPG or pen-and-paper fan will enjoy.
 
Game Features:
  • Single player campaign created by members of the leadership team that brought you Dragon Age™: Origins
  • Choose from five playable races and six unique character classes to build your own stalwart adventurer
  • A return to form, Sword Coast Legends is the compelling and complex RPG you've been waiting for and features pause time, party-based tactical combat and involving storylines
  • Dungeon Master Mode: Create your own epic adventure to share with your friends, or enhance their experience in real time as they traverse your dungeon
  • Set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe based on the fifth Edition ruleset and populated with Dungeons & Dragons lore and legend

Stylewise that UI is awfully reminiscent of NWN2's. Combat looks pretty damn fast, almost MOBA speed.

the combat looked much better than PoE

That really isn't saying much.

Eh it looks pretty hack'n'slashy to me. Which is fine if that's your thing but it's not really what I'm looking for in a DnD game. Anyway, not to derail this thread too much, but I think that as of the most recent beta build PoE combat is pretty fun.

I'm interested.  Not nearly interested enough to pre-order or anything (I'm all done with pre-ordering anyway.  I feel dirty I ever did in the past).  I'd be more interested if it had been written by whoever did Orzammar in DA:O as that was the only part of that game with writing worth celebrating, IMHO.

It looks good to me. Not interested in the 4v1 mode though; I'll have to read the reviews to see if the single player campaign is worth it.

Wondering if Feargus got the heads up regarding this game before he did the interview.

Is it a RPG like a journey based RPG like BG?

Meh. Not interested in a Frankenstein mishmash of NWN and DA:O with questionable single player.

I will keep an eye on this but won't form an opinion for another 10 months or so.

I'm actually considering pre-ordering it...I know, I know.  :unsure:

I don't see any problem with that?

 

I own one game these guys has worked on and it is a hack & slash for the N3DS, but I haven't played it yet. It could turn out to be a good game. I'm just pessimistic by nature.

Do they have forums? Bruce you should create an account there and ask them if they'll have romance.

Visually, it doesn't look that impressive but since this game is a 4 player co-op with DM ruleset, this might be awesome.  I missed d&d games.

This actually looks quite exciting. Hopefully it can replicate the depth of encounters present in BG, and tell a good story too. Despite other RPGs being good fun (like NWN, Dragon Age etc.) I have never found anything as easy to replay or with as much depth as BG2.

 

This seems more NWN inspired than BG however.

Yeah but Bruce is a promancer's pro. If anyone can successfully lobby for it, that would be Bruce.

Looks kind of promising to me. I will keep an eye on that one...

 

 

There simply can't be enough CRPGs anyways.  :yes:

Hm, interesting. It looks like the type of game genre I enjoy playing *shrug* will see what it looks like after release though.

The only pet peeve I have at first impression is... only 4 characters??

The video makes it look not half-bad, but that's not too hard to do. But in general I'm so little into RPG's these days, I think I'll pass, for now at least.
