Dungeon Siege 3 - EU Release Date - May 27th
Square Enix and Obsidian have announced Dungeon Siege 3 will be released in Europe and other PAL territories on May 27th. You may recall I questioned when GameSpot suggested a May release date in their recent preview, so presumably the NA release will be similar. Here's the official press release:
RETURN TO THE KINGDOM OF EHB! DUNGEON SIEGE III TO LAUNCH 27th MAY, 2011
Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment bring classic action-RPG franchise to high-def home video game consoles for first time
London (03 February, 2011) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, announced today that DUNGEON SIEGE™ III will be available from 27th May, 2011, in Europe and other PAL territories, with an exclusive Limited Edition available for pre-orders. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the all-new incarnation of the classic action-RPG franchise will make its debut on high-def home video game consoles. This May, players will experience the much-awaited next chapter in the DUNGEON SIEGE lore on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
In DUNGEON SIEGE III, players assume the role of one of four legionnaires in the crumbling kingdom of Ehb, fighting for the sake of their fallen comrades. Conflict is constant and decisions have lasting consequences, allowing players to dictate the outcome of the tale. Do battle as a lone hero or fight alongside up to three friends and, thanks to robust AI, DUNGEON SIEGE III’s co-op multiplayer mode allows players to seamlessly drop in and out of battle without interrupting the action or impacting the campaign.
Available exclusively for pre-orders, a limited edition Dungeon Siege III pack will be available in PAL territories featuring four unique in-game items available to activate on day of launch, enhancing and increasing your characters’ abilities as they venture forth through the Kingdom of Ehb.
“With DUNGEON SIEGE III we are bringing the rich world and lore of Ehb to an all new audience,” said Ned Browning, Brand Manager at Square Enix. “The depth of story and wealth of characters and classes will take players on an incredible journey whether in singleplayer or with up to three friends online.”
Prepare to honour thy legion and reclaim the Kingdom of Ehb in the ultimate DUNGEON SIEGE experience on 27th May, 2011. For more information and to pre-order now, visit www.dungeonsiege.com.
