Details of next 'Dungeons & Dragons' revealed
For the first time in six years, gaming fans will roll the dice with a new story for the iconic role-playing adventure Dungeons & Dragons. Publisher Wizards of the Coast will launch Tyranny of Dragons this summer, the latest chapter of the role-playing game first launched 40 years ago. The next chapter for Dungeons & Dragons will spread across multiple modern platforms, including a new tabletop adventure, and similar experiences for console video game systems and mobile devices.
"This is a huge year for us," says Nathan Stewart, brand director for D&D at games publisher Wizards of the Coast. "At the heart of Dungeons and Dragons, it's adventure."
Tyranny of Dragons pits players against throngs of dragons, led by their five-headed queen Tiamat. For the first time, players will get to battle Tiamat, who has appeared in D&D lore as a key villain since the mid-'70s. "It's really epic in terms of scale," says Stewart. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, first sold as a tabletop game in 1974 by creators Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.
