  • Five Things We’d Like to See from Sword Coast Legends

    Sword Coast Legends (SCL) is one of those games that, if it grabs you, can keep you entertained for a good long while past what you might expect. It was greeted with a mostly rocky reception when it released (see Rob’s review for reference), and was critiqued for a number of items that have led n-Space and Digital Extremes to provide free DLC updates moving forward.

  • Faceoff: Open World RPGs vs. CRPGs

    October is the most mainstream month isometric RPGs have seen in years. Wasteland 2, Sword Coast Legends, and Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition just around the corner, this is the month where CRPGs hit the mainstream like never before. Not to be outdone, November will push back with the open world juggernaut, Fallout 4. So, we’re going to do what any self-respecting gamer would do: compare the hell out of them.

  • Introducing the Cast of Characters – Part One

    It’s been kept pretty tightly under wraps, but the Sword Coast Legends single-player campaign is tied closely to WotC’s overall plans with D&D. To get you prepped for the cast of characters you’re going to meet with the story, we’ve got these exclusive bios of the cast. Today we’re meeting four of the eight main characters you’ll fight alongside. So buckle up and dig in!

  • Monster Journals - The Vrock and the Otyugh

    We've shown off a lot of Sword Coast Legends' more prominent and known monsters this week, but today, we're getting weird with the Vrock and the Otyugh. Seriously, these are not your typical D&D monsters. Read on for the details on the winged harpy-like Vrock and the nasty bulbous Otyugh!

  • Monster Journals - The Duergar and the Drow

    Sword Coast Legends, due out at the end of this month, sports a lot of the creatures from Dungeons and Dragons' illustrious history. But, unlike most RPGs, you can actually play as these monsters should you decide to take on the role of Dungeon Master, in our third of a series today we're pulling back the veil on the Duergar and the Drow... two races you'll face deep in the Underdark of the Sword Coast.

  • To Be the DM

    In the meeting halls of the Grand Sheraton Hotel in downtown Seattle last weekend Rob Lashley sat down to play Sword Coast Legends for the first time. He was limited in time, only 20 minutes, but these are his first impressions as playing as the DM.

  • A Taste of Peaches, And Cream at Gamescom

    Sword Coast Legends' multiplayer component is a (up to) five player experience set in the classic Dungeons and Dragons region of the Sword Coast. Or if you prefer, Neverwinter, Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale can all call the Sword Coast home. Classic Dungeons and Dragons. Dare I say, proper Dungeons and Dragons? That I'll leave up to dyed in the wool D&D fans to debate.

  • Being a DM Has Never Been So Fun

    One of the absolute highlights of E3 2015 was finally getting hands on with n-Games upcoming multiplayer RPG Sword Coast Legends. You’re likely following this one already, but just in case you’re not: it’s essentially the second coming of Neverwinter Nights, and it looks and plays gloriously. What’s more? It’ll let you build your own campaigns from scratch and lord over four players as a benevolent (or in my case, sadistic) dungeon master.

  • GDC 2015 Preview - We Are Excited

    Call it Baldur’s Gate nostalgia, call it Planescape: Torment elitism, but I’m a sucker for 3D isometric, party-based RPGs, and doubly so for games based in Dungeons and Dragons-inspired campaign settings. Enter Sword Coast Legends, a new Forgotten Realms-based RPG from n-Space and Digital Extremes that is being touted as an evolution of games like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights and draws its inspiration from 5th Edition D&D.

  • So Much to Look Forward To - An Interview with Dan Tudge

    Head starts and an upcoming launch aside, Dan Tudge took time this morning to chat with us about Sword Coast Legends. After playing in the head start last weekend we had some questions for Dan surrounding what the team is working on in these final weeks and what their plans are for after the game launches.

  • A Classic Forgotten Realms Adventure - Our Exclusive Interview

    The buzz surrounding last week's announcement of Sword Coast Legends is growing as excited players hope for an epic RPG based on the glory of the table-top experience. We had the opportunity to interview Nathan Stewart, Brand Director for Dungeons & Dragons & Wizards of the Coast and Dan Tudge, President of n-Space to find out more.

Developer Journals

  • Monster Journals - Gelatinous Cube & Wererat Revealed

    Today, we’re continuing our look at the monsters of Sword Coast Legends, due out later this month. There are a whole host of baddies you’ll be playing against as heroes, and as when you’re the Dungeon Master. Today, we’re shining a light on the Gelatinous Cube and the Wererat!

  • Monster Journals - Beholder & Troll Revealed

    The beauty of Sword Coast Legends is that not only will players control their own characters, but if they're playing Dungeon Master, they'll be able to control a whole cadre of monstrous beings pull straight from pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be doing some deep dives in to some of these monsters. Today, we're starting with the wondrous and terrible Beholder, and the monstrously strong Troll. Read on!

  • MMORPG’s Best of E3 2015 Awards

    It’s that time of year! Time to blather on about the games we drooled over the most at E3 2015. Yes, we know these awards mean very little in the grand scheme of things. But stop being so pessimistic. Games are fun, and being excited about the ones you want to play in the future is part of what makes this hobby so great. So without further ado, here are our picks for the Best of E3 2015.

    Conventions are always a great time for developers to spill the beans about what’s next for their most anticipated titles, and PAX is a Prime venue (you’re welcome) for big announcements. Our staff was on the ground for all things related to MMOs and RPGs at PAX Prime 2015. Here are five of the most interesting stories from last week’s conference!

  • The 5 Best Games and Announcements from E3 2015

    E3 2015 was a historic event for the gaming industry. Whether you’re an old-school gamer that was dying to finally see Final Fantasy VII’s remake announced, one of the few people that held out hope The Last Guardian was still a thing, or just a fan of gaming looking forward to the biggest and best new games the industry has to offer, there was something for everyone. Hell, we even got the first ever PC Gaming Show this year! That has literally never happened.

  • The Multiplayer RPG Experience

    180+ hours into Guild Wars 2, I’ve only recently begun digging into its assortment of dungeons. Sure, I’ve dabbled in my fair share of pre-level cap PvP and open world small parties, but I’ve been waiting to hit 80 to sink my teeth into the game’s group content. As I mentioned in last week’s column, I’m no stranger to dungeons and raids in MMOs, and have historically sought out group content commensurate to my level.

  • Hanging Our RPG Hopes on Sword Coast Legends

    There’s no denying that the Baldur’s Gate series is foundational in the evolution of single-player RPGs. The gameplay in Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, along with their expansions, inspired a generation of isometric RPGs, including genre favorites Planescape: Torment and the Icewind Dale series.
