Dungeon Siege 3 release date announced

Dungeon Siege 3 release date announced

Dungeon Siege 3 is the first game in the series not made by Gas Powered Games.

Square Enix has finally announced a release date for upcoming hack-and-slash title Dungeon Siege 3, pegging 27th May for Europe.

America, on the other hand, will have to wait an extra few days - Dungeon Siege 3 will hit US shelves on May 31st.

A sequel to the successful and pretty Dungeon Siege series, which was regrettably turned into a film by Uwe Boll, Dungeon Siege 3 is the first title in the franchise not to be developed by Gas Powered Games. Instead, Fallout: New Vegas developers Obsidian Entertainment are taking over.

The publisher has changed too, with Square Enix picking the series up off Microsoft.

Details of the story and feature set are still sketchy at the moment, but it's confirmed to be set in the same kingdom as the first two games and to feature a multiplayer campaign.

The original Dungeon Siege gave me and friends hours of fun. Did the solo campaign through several times and did Lan games Co-Op for the multiplayer, something that was sorely missing from DS2, which looked great but the pace and story was in need of something more to bring the game to life.

I hope Obsidian and Square Enix have what it takes to bring the best out of a really good game and raise it to new heights.

Well the shoe's on the other foot now - I'm almost glad to hear that Europe will get the game before the USA :P

Europe's gaming community is much larger than the American Empire's

DS3 - magic! (pun intended)

Played through DS1 & DS2 a few times now, I wonder is Square Enix can do a good a job as GPG?
