Tuque Games recaps for us in five minutes on what we can expect in the game if we aren’t knowledgeable in the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) games.
„Dark Alliance brings to life the world of Dungeons & Dragons in an explosive action RPG filled with real-time combat and dynamic co-op. Frost giants and vengeful dragons roam unchecked through Icewind Dale as invading armies of evil grow stronger every day. Now four heroes must beat back the onslaught of creatures and defend against the dark. Choose your hero and join up to four friends to battle legendary monsters. Explore the frigid world of Icewind Dale as you vanquish unstoppable bosses, earn powerful gear, and unlock new abilities to take on even bigger challenges.

If you remember Icewind Dale, you might have been playing in the 2000s already.
Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance will be published by Wizards of the Coast on June 22 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (and the physical versions have been pushed back to July). If you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, you can pick up the game and play from day 1 on PC, console, or even the cloud (Android, iOS). We rarely see a cross-gen/multiplat title go for a day 1 XGP launch. The last time we have seen it was with Outriders in April.
