The recently revived Black Isle Studios has started hinting at Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance III.
Please. I loved Dark Alliance 2. Still play it on occasion, too.
never really got into Dark Alliance 2 but DA1 was so awesome! would be cool to have a number 3
This would be such good news. I've been waiting for a decent, co-op dungeon crawler this gen and so far nothing! Nada! Zip! I had such high hopes for Snowblind Studio's War in the North and it sounds like it was a bit of a mess. Welcome back, Black Isle. We missed you. Now get to work, dammit!
Maybe this will increase the chances of a new Champions game from Sony...Return to Arms was epic.
Yeah I agree. A friend and I used to get so trashed playing through both Champions games. Not sure how many hundreds of hours we dumped into them.
...But... what about Ice Wind Dale? =-(
I'd much rather have a Baldurs Gate 3.
exactly! screw dark alliance, gimme Baldurs Gateeeeeee
awesome if ture, i love balders gate. make it a downloadable title.
A new Black Isle? Eh, I don't know, Interplay itself has been crap since it got bought by Moron-Who-Also-Created-Superma n64. As Brian Fargo said, a company is only as good as the talent it employs. Even if these people DID make a Dark Alliance 3, the chances of it being good are... not pretty.
What's the point? The villain for Dark Alliance III, revealed at the very end of 2, is a mummy lord from a country that no longer exists in the Forgotten Realms (Mulhorand, the fake Ancient Egypt)after the 4th edition changes. And D&D is already doing marketing for the next version of D&D since 4th split their audience and lost a whole bunch of them to Pathfinder.
Then we get an all-new villain.
Why bother?all the original talent have moved on and created other studios.
Why bother? Interplay now owns all the Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, etc IP's and can produce new ones.
