Dungeon Siege 3's release date is official: May 31, 2011. Square Enix and Obsidian's action RPG is set tp come out on the 360, PlayStation 3 as well as the series' ancestral home, the PC -- this is the first Dungeon Siege game that's playable on consoles.
This DS will feature four-player co-op action that "allows players to seamlessly drop in and out of battle without interrupting the action or impacting the campaign." Sounds good to me and my three friends!
"Dungeon Siege has returned and it’s better than ever. We [Square Enix] have partnered with Obsidian to bring this critically acclaimed classic franchise back in an all new, re-imagined form,” said Ami Blaire, vice president of marketing at Square Enix, Inc in a statement.
