General: Gauntlet: Updated for a New Generation

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,008MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that perennial favorite, Gauntlet, is being reworked for a new generation of machines and players. Gauntlet is expected to be released on Steam this summer and for Steam Machines later this year. 

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. Each character has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. For example, the Warrior does the most damage in melee combat, the Wizard has the most powerful magic, the Valkyrie has the most armor and the Elf moves the fastest. Distinctive play styles, procedural dungeons and an impressive art style keep the gameplay fresh.

    "Red wizard shot the food!"


    Tons of awesome memories playing the old Gauntlet in the arcade and on my NES with the 4-player hookup!


    Can't wait to get my hands on this!

    When you see a new MMORPG, honestly think to yourself: "Is this game designed to EARN my $15 per month subscription with content, originality, and long-term value, or is it just designed to SCAM me out of $50 when I buy the box at the store with flashy advertising, biased reviews, and empty promises?"

    One of my favorite games as a kid. Was a major quarter muncher.

    Love Gauntlet but I think I'll pass this. It obviously suffers from a very severe case of south-sightedness, a very irritating malady curiously endemic to this age.

    Looks like a cool game.

    I'll check it out but don't imagine that it could capture what the original had... even though I'm sure the graphics are far better.

    Reading the topic, I was afraid for a second it was going to be "For Mobile" and ruin it all. XD

    Oh man, I used to play the Gauntlet games on the Nintendo consoles with my family when I was younger, good times.

    I'd absolutely love to see a Dark Legacy full on remake (same levels, same story, same classes, etc.). Perhaps if this game is a success, then such remake is the next step? :)

    grew up on the original gauntlet, was the first ARPG imo.  Blue Elf needs food BADLY!!!!  I actually really liked how they did Dark Legacy too, and hope its not just arcade style, but character development
