Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance is a new title experiencing an influx of players, likely boosted by its day one arrival on Xbox Game Pass. Keeping that in mind, there are sure to be teething issues at this early stage. Additionally, there are promising signs that developer Tuque Games will iron the network connectivity issues out in time. The dev team has already released a patch fixing a game-breaking glitch, so is clearly keen to get the game running smoothly ASAP.

The devs also seem to listen to their players, having included an option to disable camera shake after receiving complaints about the feature before launch. Some of that goodwill might’ve been lost due to players suspecting that their pre-order bonuses are missing, but, in reality, users need to look elsewhere.

While it’s seemingly not on the existing roadmap at this time, with a bit of luck, the future might hold a Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance Nintendo Switch version.
