The new game is currently in the works for Windows PC and consoles, and it will be developed by Gameloft’s Montreal Studios, who previously worked on Disney Dreamlight Valley, LEGO Star Wars Castaways, and several other games in the Dungeon Hunter series. The upcoming game will be set in the Forgotten Realms within the Dungeons & Dragons Universe.


The new video game will bring a cooperative gameplay experience built around a hybrid of survival, life-simulation, and action RPG styles. Gameloft also indicated that players can expect an adventure heavy in lore for this epic, legendary franchise, with real-time survival elements and a campaign that encompasses resilience, camaraderie, and danger.

Gameloft Montreal Creative Director Andre Deslongchamps added, “Making friends, both on and off the table, has always been a core Dungeons & Dragons value and it is our goal, as life-long fans, to bring this experience to a different genre renowned for emergent gameplay and shared narrative that can be enjoyed by both newcomers and tabletop masters alike.”
