So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Dungeon Siege Screenshots




Developer: Gas Powered Games (GPG) Corp.
Availability: Scheduled for release in 2001

Product Overview:
"Dungeon Siege" is an action fantasy role-playing game that combines the immersive elements of a role-playing game with the intensity of a real-time strategy game. "Dungeon Siege" plunges players into a continuous 3-D fantasy world on a quest to stop a mysterious evil that has been unleashed. Beginning with a single character, players can travel through the world and gather a party of up to 10 characters or choose to face the challenge alone. The fusion of action role-playing and real-time strategy controls in "Dungeon Siege" impels players into one over-the-top battle after another as the storyline unfolds.

Key Features:

  • Immersive, continuous, fully 3-D environment.
    The setting of "Dungeon Siege" is one gigantic, continuous world in which players can seamlessly journey from the highest mountain to the deepest dungeon without ever having to stop to watch a loading screen. Discovering a myriad of locations to explore - from strange secret underground lairs to towering alpine mountains and deep desert canyons - players will become immersed in the fantasy of the world that surrounds them.

  • Intense gameplay - "Dungeon Siege" style.
    "Dungeon Siege" pushes the envelope of role-playing games with fully animated 3-D characters, over-the-top battles, intense special effects and awe-inspiring vertical landscapes. With true 3-D environments, a particle system for effects and spells and dungeons that can extend in three dimensions, Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games inject the role-playing game genre with the same level of intensity found in real-time strategy games. "Dungeon Siege" takes full advantage of the real-time strategy gaming experience with a broad array of familiar game controls such as drag select, way points and formations.

  • A band of friends to help save the world.
    In "Dungeon Siege," gamers can customize their party to include up to 10 cohorts, picking up valuable characters along the way (and dropping dead weight if they need to). Players who want a troupe heavy in magic skills can bring along all the sorcerers they can find. Solo-minded players can recruit a trusty group of henchmen or bring along a pack mule to help haul their loot.

    Action and adventure without the wait.
    "Dungeon Siege" is engaging and easy to understand; action-packed and easy to control; deep and involving and quick to learn. Players don't have to worry about making too many decisions up front: their characters will develop all the skills needed to win as the adventure progresses. With a simple learning curve and no complex puzzles, players can concentrate on the fun stuff: battling monsters, exploring dungeons and advancing their character.

  • A game - and a gaming platform.
    The proprietary Siege Editor in "Dungeon Siege" gives gamers the freedom to rework nearly every aspect of the game, making "Dungeon Siege" not only a game, but also a role-playing platform for those who want to create their own characters, spells, dungeons - even entire worlds. Gamers can post these user-created files to the Web, making them available for anyone to download and explore or play as a multiplayer game.

  • Full multiplayer support.
    "Dungeon Siege" will support up to 10 players via a local area network (LAN) or the MSN™ Gaming Zone (http://www.zone.com/). Players can take part in both "short game" multiplayer experiences such as capture the castle and the more traditional, widely played campaign style of play.
