Gauntlet is a game that my childhood dreams are made out of, other than sonic. The news of a new release had me completely overjoyed, because despite how far we've come in the gaming world, there is still a place for games like this, and why not. Gauntlet is one of the originals. They've recently released their pre-order benefit with the Gauntlet game, though it may not seem like much the game will have a price tag of around $15, so pretty impressive they've included anything at all. However different retailers will have unique weapons, so I'm definitely excited to see what those ones will be. They've also asked for people to go on twitter and tell us if Elf is a race, or a class using their hashtags #ElfRace or #ElfClass
So far it seems like the game is only going to be launched for PC, but there is still time to hope they'll be seen on console also. Check out their press release below! *****
Retailer specific in-game bonuses offer fans even more reasons to battle with their friends in the fight for treasure and glory this September!
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that when consumers pre-order Gauntlet, they will receive a limited-time, exclusive free gift, an original digital comic, Gauntlet: Darkness Callsfrom DC Entertainment, which details the origins of the Gauntlet’s most vile master Morak. The comic will be delivered on 3rdSeptember, 2014, the day the game is released. Consumers who pre-order the game through select retailers will also receive unique, in-game weapons.
Morak’s hordes will tremble when the Warrior dons these horrific implements of mayhem! Gauntlet, a modernised version of the celebrated dungeon crawler, will be available this summer for the £14.99 via digital download for PC, offering full support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines shipping the second half of this year. The game will lead the launch of WB Games Vault, a direct-to-digital portfolio that will deliver paid games across multiple digital networks.
Gauntlet, developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, innovates on past titles while staying true to the brand’s legendary format. Players select from four classic fantasy-based characters: Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, or Elf.
Upon selecting a playable character, the gameplay is set within dungeons where the object is to fight through the chambers slaying evil creatures and completing challenges. An assortment of special items and magical relics can be located in each dungeon that can restore the player’s health, unlock doors, and aid the player in surviving longer in the Gauntlet by bestowing special abilities. The enemies are a vast assortment of fantasy-based monsters, including ghosts, grunts, demons, spiders, sorcerers and skeleton warriors.
