The Gauntlet series is set to return and get you, plus three of your friends, running around dungeons and battling crowds of monsters.
In this updated version of the classic multiplayer role-playing game, you and your buddies can take on the roles of the Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie and Elf. The Warrior is all about brutal, physical attacks while the Wizard sets off a bunch of area-clearing spells to help contribute to the group's adventures. By the same token, the Elf and Valkyrie are both respectively quick and armored, providing many services with their speed and defense.
"To us at Arrowhead, Gauntlet is one of the most defining games from our childhoods, and it's amazing to be able to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on a brand new version,” said Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios, in a statement. “Gauntlet is one of the original and best known video game properties and we are looking forward to creating a fresh, yet true to the original, take on a multiplayer masterpiece.”
Together, you'll journey through dungeons, cutting through swaths of monsters and collecting treasure along the way. There's no set release for Gauntlet, but it's set to be released for Steam on PC in Summer 2014.
