Dungeons & Dragons, the original standard for preternatural role-playing is taking its first step into the world of console video games with Daggerdale. Set deep in the mythology of the Forgotten Realms Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale is a hack and slash game on the Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system.
Players are summoned by a mysterious mage and given the task of defending their homeland from Rezlus, an evil Zhentarim Cleric seeking to bring the power of the Black Lord Bane to Daggerdale. Four roles – Human Fighter, Elven Rogue, Halfing Wizard and Dwarven Cleric – are available for player to choose from as are a variety of weapons, feats and powers. Players can level their character, unlocking three tiers of powers and an extensive list of feats allowing for the creation of a truly unique character as they restore order to the Dalelands.
Atari and Bedlam Games produced the action-packed Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale which allows solo and co-op play for up to four players.
