Square-Enix Reveals Dungeon Siege III
So apparently, this is the game that was supposed to make journalists do a "double take." ...well, I suppose.
Today, Square-Enix has announced Dungeon Siege III, the newest installment in the RPG franchise and developed by Obsidian Entertainment "with input from the original developer, Gas Powered Games." The franchise will make its debut on consoles and come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. They're looking to create an "evolved action/RPG experience" and in addition to breaking the boundaries of the PC realm, it will also boast an all-new co-op multiplayer mode. The gameplay should be interesting as the press release explains DSIII as a "seamless blend of intuitive action gameplay and a robust RPG system in an immersive world where every decision the player makes will result in consequences." Said Feargus Urquhart, CEO and Co-Founder of Obsidian Entertainment:
"It's a distinct privilege and thrill to become a part of the Dungeon Siege legacy. This partnership with Square Enix is a milestone for both Obsidian and the franchise, and the two companies' strengths for compelling characters and storytelling will shine throughout Dungeon Siege 3."
John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square-Enix, added that his company is "committed to expanding our portfolio of games across a wide variety of genres." Other features include being able to "pick from unique and highly customizable character classes," the chance to "recruit companions with unique personalities and abilities," and the "weighty decisions" players will have to make throughout the adventure. This all sounds great but we're still trying to wash the taste of Obsidian's latest, Alpha Protocol, out of our mouths. Maybe they were too busy focusing on this new project, or something.
