Another day, another massive win for Xbox Game Pass, the absolute best deal in gaming. This time, the win comes in the form of the announcement that Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance, the four-player co-op action game based in Icewind Dale, will be coming to Xbox Game Pass on console, cloud, and PC on launch day.
Dungeon and Dragons: Dark Alliance is the latest of several games to release on Game Pass on launch day, joining titles like Outriders, Knockout City, and the Sony-developed MLB: The Show 21. Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance seems like a particularly good fit for Game Pass given its co-op nature and the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons as an IP. Dark Alliance will also be available for purchase on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam for $39.99 for the standard edition or $59.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition.
It’s a good time to be a Dungeons and Dragons fan playing video games. Baldur’s Gate 3 is in development at Larian, though it will need some time to get out of early access, and the spiritual successor to Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance, the classic Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance was recently re-released on modern platforms, with a PC port coming later this year. Black Isle Studios has also confirmed that a re-release of its sequel, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 2, is “on the table.”
