D&D Makes It’s Way To Xbox

The biggest Dungeons & Dragons adventure ever to hit a next-generation game console comes to the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCube video game system this fall with Dungeons & Dragons Heroes from Infogrames, Inc. “Dungeons & Dragons Heroes will take gamers on an adventure of epic proportions,” said Ann Marie Bland, director of brand marketing for Infogrames’ Beverly studio. “The heart of Dungeons & Dragons has always been the social interaction and cooperation between players to successfully complete their quest, and it is no different with Dungeons & Dragons Heroes. We’ve carefully crafted that element, allowing four players at a time to experience the Dungeons & Dragons world.” Leading the design team of Dungeons & Dragons Heroes is multi-award-winning designer Brenda Brathwaite, who most recently worked on the critically acclaimed Wizardry 8. “What we are doing with Dungeons & Dragons Heroes is designing a game with a decidedly action-oriented flair that will be easy for even a new player to grasp but will immerse the seasoned D&D player in an authentic D&D adventure that will give them the same feeling they experienced with the classic tabletop roleplaying game,” said Brathwaite. “Each new game will be a different and exciting experience depending on the mix of characters players choose to venture out with, giving the game great replayability.” Anticipated features for the game include the ability to play as one of four distinct hero characters drawn from the main Dungeons & Dragons character classes of Fighter, Wizard, Cleric and Rogue, each with 40-plus combat moves and special abilities unique to their character; authentic D&D Monsters, many drawn directly from the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual; a Skills, Feats and Character Building system inspired by the third edition of the Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook; interactive levels spanning multiple environments ranging from a working forge to a magically suspended castle in the sky; and visually stunning spell and magical effects with weapon and magical upgrades appearing on the in-game characters. Dungeons & Dragons Heroes is being developed by Infogrames’ Hunt Valley studio. The first opportunity to see Dungeons & Dragons Heroes in action will be May 22 –24, 2002 at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.
