The new Gauntlet E3 trailer highlights the game's Relics system, allowing players to acquire deadly new abilities and unleash ancient powers.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a new video for Gauntlet, a modernized action RPG version of the celebrated dungeon crawler due to be available this summer via Steam for PC, offering full support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines. The game will lead the launch of WB Games Vault, a direct-to-digital portfolio that will deliver paid games based on popular Warner Bros. and Midway brands, plus original IP, across multiple digital networks.
Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, in Gauntlet 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.
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 can be located in each dungeon that can restore the player's health, unlock doors, and shift the odds in the player's favor with magical relics which can aid the player in surviving longer in the Gauntlet. The enemies are a vast assortment of fantasy-based monsters, including ghosts, grunts, demons, spiders, sorcerers and skeleton warriors.
