Dungeon Siege III: Spiritual Successor To Dark Alliance?
Dungeon Siege III will be ready to go on May 31 and if you're not excited yet...well, just a minute...read this.
You need to check out the most recent update at the PlayStation Blog, where Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman talks about how DSIII on the PS3 should be great for anybody who enjoyed Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance. Obsidian's latest is described as a "modern take on the classic overhead-view action/RPG," and PS3 owners needn't worry about control:
"Crucially, developer Obsidian Entertainment has put much work into making Dungeon Siege III play nice with the DualShock 3 controller without diluting the combat and inventory depth that genre fans have long adored. On the PS3, Dungeon Siege III’s interface is a robust approximation of the PC hotkey system, enabling you to swap between two battle stances instantaneously with a tap of L1. Each stance has unique strengths and weaknesses as well as an arsenal of special abilities that can radically alter your attack strategy."
Furthermore, we'll get "robust cooperative play support on the PS3," which includes two-player local co-op and four player co-op over the PSN. You have fair warning, though: as more warriors join the fray, the deadly denizens of the night will increase in number. For my part, I just want something that can be called a spiritual successor to Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath. If this is it, I'm satisfied.
