New D&D game from Dragon Age: Origins director actually looks awesome

Sword coast

Okay, so I read an announcement about a new game from the director of Dragon Age: Origins and I immediately wrote it off in my head as something I wouldn’t be interested in. But then I did my due diligence and looked into the game, and it’s actually looking incredible. I want it now.

Sword Coast: Legends promises all the stuff we’ve come to expect from an RPG, but then it goes even further. First of all, just check out this trailer.

Based on the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe and populated with all the D&D lore you could ask for, the game actually has a bunch of cool 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

Deep storytelling, compelling characters, and tactical combat? I think they just made a bunch of people very happy. The game is coming to PC this year and you can already pre-order it if you still believe in pre-orders. I’m just happy to see such a pure D&D game from the team behind Dragon Age: Origins. I know that they can deliver incredible experiences and I’m excited to see what they do with this game.

      This looks more like Baldur’s Gate than DA:I.

        Well, DA:I kept showing that Tactical View which got me all excited for nothing.

        Baldur’s Gate 2 is the greatest RPG I have ever played. Still do…keep playing it over and over and it’s always epic…

        The team supposedly includes members who worked on Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights.

        Did you play DA:I yet? Combat is extremely streamlined and simple, much action orientated and flashy. Tactical View hardly matters.

          I’ve used the tactical once or twice and each time I was horrified at how clunky and awkward it feels.

            Exactly this, it’s pointless and there aren’t even that many tactical options available. Its more of an ARPG

    Why can’t these guys get the BG3 rights in stead of those Beamdog guys?

      I just hope the current school-yard bullies Deell See and Mike Transac stay away.

    AD&D lore. Forgotten Realms is AD&D. Not D&D. Very different rules and so forth.

    And I apologise for the pedant comment. (I hope I am not wrong) But the 45 odd story books, the player manuals, the TWO different Forgotten realms role playing box sets may prove otherwise. Pen and Paper stuff.

      Don’t care about the minor details anymore, but I am ecstatic that this is set in the Forgotten Realms!

        I suppose so. It is just I am old school on this stuff and have so much in my head of the lore, the rules and so forth.

        The sword coast is interesting, but a game in a place like Calimport or even the Dales sounds more interesting to me. How about an Elminster game, the coming of age for him?

          Ye… Would be great if they moved one of these games to the far south!
          Can’t remember where the Dales are… far east from Neverwinter?
          I used to have a 30mb map of the realm… gonna look it up again!
          Would love to learn more about the editor… as big as Neverwinter Nights toolset I hope.
