Xbox Game Pass users won’t have to buy ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance’
The list of third-party titles being added to the Xbox Game Pass library on their launch day is getting longer this year. The newest addition is Tuque Games’ “Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance” that will be available next month.
Tuque Games Head of Studio Jeff Hattem announced an Xbox blog post on Thursday confirming that the Game Pass availability will apply to all platforms where “Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance” is launching. The third-person RPG will be available to Xbox Game Pass members via PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S without additional cost.
“Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance” will also be playable through eligible Android phones and tablets through the Xbox cloud. The developer confirmed PC and Xbox console fans will be able to play together via cross-play, a feature that is will go live at launch as well.
Note that access to Xbox cloud requires an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which costs $14.99 per month. Microsoft is still offering a promo for new members that lets them sign up for $1 per month on their first three months of using the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC plans. The latter’s regular price is $9.99 per month.
‘Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance’ release date, gameplay
One of the core features of “Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance” is its four playable characters that players can choose when they play co-op. “‘Dark Alliance’ lets you choose from four iconic heroes, the Companions of the Hall – Drizzt, Catti-brie, Bruenor, and Wulfgar – with over 50 different moves, special abilities, and team-attacks.”
The cross-play will be available in the “Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance” co-op mode, where up to four players can team up and conquer Icewind Dale. But fans who prefer to complete missions and collect loots alone can also opt for the solo-player campaign. The game will be released on June 22 and it is also coming to PS4 and PS5.
