For those who haven’t been keeping up Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is developed by Montreal-based Tuque Games as a spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games. Unlike those titles, the new Dark Alliance trades in the overhead Diablo-esque camera angle for a full third-person view and adds online play to the mix. Here’s the game’s full description:

Dark Alliance brings the Forgotten Realms to life in an explosive action RPG filled with real-time combat and dynamic co-op. Choose your hero—a fighter, rogue, barbarian, or ranger—and join up to four friends to topple legendary monsters and defy the odds.

  • Fight Alongside Your Friends - Four friends can join online and fight together in a dynamic co-op experience with explosive real-time combat. Unleash devastating combos, and team-up moves as you topple unstoppable monsters. Bring your friends; take on impossible challenges.
  • Choose Your Hero - Play as one of four distinct heroes, each with their own unique playstyle and customizable abilities. Complete missions and vanquish bosses to unlock new character specific skills and earn powerful gear, allowing players to take on even bigger challenges.
