Elf Needs Food: New Gauntlet in the Works
On the eve of GDC 2014, a new Twitter account and website suggest a new Gauntlet game is about to be revealed.
The Twitter feed, @playgauntlet is empty aside from this description:
Official Twitter updates on the new, completely modernized action RPG version of the arcade classic,
Follow the linked website on the Twitter, and you arrive on a barebones Gauntlet page with a handful of additional details:
- The new Gauntlet is being made by the folks behind Magicka and The Showdown Effect, Arrowhead Game Studios
- WB Games on is publishing duty
- Gauntlet is a PC exclusive and it’s headed to Steam “this summer”
That’s all we have for now, but we’re expecting to learn more about the new Gauntlet soon. At the very least, we know it’s being made by a studio perfectly suited to the task.
As someone that grew up playing Gauntlet in the arcades, I can’t wait to see what Arrowhead is working on. You can get a peek in the announcement trailer below.
