Sword Coast Legends is a party-based tactical RPG that uses 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules and the Faerun campaign setting licensed from Wizards of the Coast. It is due to release on PC via Steam in 2015. Members of the game's development team have previously worked on similar games such as Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Dragon Age: Origins.
The game will support multiplayer, with up to 4 people controlling characters in the same party as well as a 5th player playing as the dungeon master. The dungeon master can create custom adventures and then run them for players, making adjustments on the fly while players play through them. The game can also be played entirely in single-player.
Players can choose from five playable races (Human, Dwarf, Elf, Half-Elf, and Halfling) and six classes (Fighter, Rogue, Cleric, Wizard, Paladin, and Ranger). More playable races and classes are planned post-launch.
The combat plays out in real time with pause, like the Infinity Engine games. Although the game uses 5th Edition D&D rules, it is not a completely strict application of those rules. Instead, the game aims to "capture the feel of the latest edition of rules, but not necessarily the specific mechanics" with the goal of "adapting the fifth edition tabletop ruleset to better work in a videogame" in a way that "feels true to D&D."
