D&D General Gameplay Trailer for D&D Dark Alliance Video Game

I'd forgotten all about this, but it was one of the 7 digital Dungeons & Dragons games mentioned in February of 2020. It's a console game which launches in June, and you can now watch a gameplay trailer of it. The game features a Drizz't and his friends, and you get to fight frost giants, beholders, and white dragons in Icewind Dale. You can pre-order it now.

I'm not really sure about the tone here. We've got Drizzt, Bruenor and so on (I presume) and yet this we have people giving the finger as they sink into lava, giants (?!) with jamming on guitars, heavy-metal style and so on. I mean it's kind of fun but kind of weird.

I have to say that it looks fun but looks very much more AA rather than AAA which was the original ambition. Still, maybe they're delaying going for an AAA-style game until they have more people at the studio.

The original two Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games were not AAA either, but they was a lot of fun to play back in the day on my PS2. If this one is similar, then if should be just as fun on my PS4.
 

While it still could be fun as heck, I can't help but feel that it looks more like a previous gen than a next gen game.

But speaking of previous gen systems, one detail I was glad to note (with the PS5 still in short supply), anyone that purchases Dark Alliance on PS4 will get a free download code for it on the PS5.
