WotC D&D Direct--Learn About Upcoming D&D On April 21st!

D&D Direct is a 30-minute video which WotC will be releasing on April 21st at 9am Pacific Time (5pm BST, if I have my time zones correct). They'll be using it to reveal stuff about upcoming D&D projects (including video games and entertainment). The video will be presented by Anna Prosser and B. Dave Walters.

This is being billed in an emailed announcement entitled "Learn Everything That’s Happening This Year for Dungeons & Dragons" as the "first ever D&D Direct", so presumably there are more planned.




The D&D Team at Wizards of the Coast is excited to debut D&D Direct, a jam-packed thirty-minute video presentation on April 21 at 9:00 AM Pacific Time.

Tune in to see exclusive reveals from the world's greatest roleplaying game, including video games, entertainment, and more, guided by hosts Anna Prosser and B. Dave Walters.

D&D Direct will be broadcast on the D&D YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/DNDWizards) and Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/dnd) channels.

To find out more on D&D Direct go to dnd.wizards.com and follow the official D&D social media accounts for more updates.

See you on April 21 at 9:00 AM PT for the first-ever D&D Direct!

If each item gets only 3 minutes, and the rumor of 30 minutes total is true, that's ten major items. Basically 3 per "section" - game, entertainment, vidya games

Some stuff might get less them 3 minutes depending on what it is, like new t-shirts or a dice set won't take 3 minutes. I think they will explore what is announced separately after D&D Direct in more detail, maybe right after.

I've heard people mention that they still use the 4e essentials rules for the board games, but I've never played one and can't comment, other than passing along the rumor.
I know the boardgames published during 4E were 4E or later Essentials, I don't know about boardgames that have been published since.
Yup, the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System board games are an adaptation of 4E combat and powers rules, starting with Wrath of Asherdalon (sp?) and Castle Ravenloft. Tomb of Annihilation and Dungeon of the Mad Mage use the same 4E rules, but tie into 5E storyline and fluff. Dunno if they are making any new ones moving firwards at this point.

Do you mean the "Wrath of Ashardalon" and "Legends of Drizzt" boardgames? Because the most recent one of those that they made was for the Dungeon of the Mad Mage. The most recent ones have used a strange simplified 4e-5e fusion ruleset, where they use 4e-terms like "squares," "powers," and "healing surges," but also use some 5e mechanics like advantage and disadvantage.

I crit!
I do not know if this is legit as in they got the OK to out this up. However it looks incredible and I hope to see it!
Little #SpelljammerConfirmed news here. @MorganCytarion & myself have been working the #ttrpg #dnd content we want to see that would hopefully line up with the D&D Direct news this week. A 3 adventure module for #DMsGuild with PC options, phlogiston faring mechanics & ships!
