The Wizards of the Coast, a division of Hasbro Inc., is proud to announce the new video game called Dark Alliance.
The game is an explosive action roleplaying video game that builds upon the rich lore of the Forgotten Realms in Dungeons & Dragons. It will launch on June 22 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
“DARK ALLIANCE marks an important milestone for us as the first Dungeons & Dragons video game to be published by Wizards of the Coast,” said Chris Cocks, President, Wizards of the Coast. “We’re excited to expand beyond the tabletop and deliver brand new type of D&D experience to long-time fans and new audiences when the game launches this June.”
This new title was developed by the Wizards Studio, Tuque Games, and will be set in the Forgotten Realms. It will feature real-time combat and dynamic co-op gameplay and pits the infamous Drizzt Do’Urden and his legendary companions, Catti-brie, Bruenor, and Wulfgar against the most iconic monsters from the world of Dungeons and Dragons. These monsters include White Dragons, Beholders, and Frost Giants.

Getting the Steelbook Edition lands players with the Steelbook case, printed art book, downloadable Dungeons and Dragons soundtrack, a Beholder and Lich weapon set, and the upcoming expansion Echoes of the Blood War. The Digital Deluxe Edition will be priced $59.99, which includes the Echoes of the Blood War expansion and the Lich weapon set. All pre-orders will have the exclusive in-game Beholder weapon set at launch.
“Dungeons & Dragons is the reason I became a game developer; it’s a lifelong dream realized to be able to create something that is fun to play over and over again with your friends,” said Jeff Hattem, studio head, Tuque Games. “Since announcing the game, we’ve worked to bring these iconic characters and monsters to life in a stunningly beautiful and fully realized world that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of combat encounters in D&D.”
