New Daggerdale Trailer Goes Up the Tower That’s Down the Mine

A new Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale trailer sets the stage for yet another attack on the Dalelands by an overblown, ridiculously-attired evil wizard with a bad accent.

Your mission, gentlemen, is a simple one: in the rugged lands of the Desertsmouth Mountains, deep within the ancient dwarven mines of Tethyamar, lies the entrance to a great tower constructed by the evil wizard Rezlus of the Zhentarim. Find the entrance. Scale the tower. Kill everything.

It may not be the most elaborate story to come along since Tolkien put pen to paper but there’s a certain old-school charm to be found in vast Dwarven caverns, a looming, evil tower and putting the gears to those poor slobs who still haven’t managed to find a better place to live than the Dalelands. And given that gameplay seems firmly rooted in the “click to clobber” tradition, I suppose there’s not much point in going overboard with plot.

I do have to wonder, though: who builds a tower inside a mine? And why do so many bad guys wear horned skulls as shoulder pads? You’d think they’d be constantly poking themselves in the ear with those things.

Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale, aka Triple-D [if I have my way] is an “episodic, module-based” action adventure slated for release this summer on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
