Dungeons 3 Has Been Announced

I’m very glad to tell you that the sequel to the game that swore at me more than any other, is scheduled for release later this year. Kalypso Media have been keeping Dungeons 3 development very quiet, but they finally broke their silence today, not only announcing its presence at GDC 2017 next week, but also giving a release date of autumn this year.

Dungeons 2 created a very entertaining world (we won’t mention Dungeons 1) with saccharine good guys and camp, over-the-top bad guys and lots of dastardly monsters and traps, and best of all, it’s all narrated in the dulcet tones of Kevin Brighting.

Did I mentions he swears at you?

Seriously, Dungeons 2 is a very funny game, and it looks like Kalypso are keeping enough of the previous ingredients for Dungeons 3 to be just as funny. Along with the humor, you can expect a fun management sim that will put your planning skills to the test, not only against impudent adventurers, but also against a rebellious workers too. On top of this (literally) you also have the “overworld” which is a fully featured RTS battlefield.

Some of the new features we can expect in this sequel are: randomly generated dungeons, reworked RTS, Co op mode, new characters, new rooms, new abilities and a brand new 20 hour campaign. Here’s hoping for a good showing at GDC 2017.


Official Press Release

Bracknell, UK, 21st February, 2017 – The Dungeon Lord returns! Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios are proud to announce Dungeons 3, the biggest and best entry yet in the acclaimed Dungeons series, set to make its first appearance at GDC 2017 in San Francisco. Attendees of the show will be able to see the first ever gameplay demos of the game and have the opportunity to speak with Benjamin Rauscher, one of the evil masterminds behind the Dungeons series. As well as PC, Mac and Linux versions, Kalypso Media is excited to confirm that Dungeons 3 will also launch on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One – the first time that a Dungeons title has appeared on a Microsoft console. Dungeons 3 is currently planned for an autumn 2017 release.

In Dungeons 3, the Dungeon Lord has successfully united the forces of evil and established the roots of his dark empire, leading him to the next step in his diabolical quest: expansion!

Through enticing the dark elf priestess Thalya from the fluffy clutches of the surface world to become his chief lieutenant, the Dungeon Lord has found a way to direct his campaign of conquest from the confines of his underground lair. With Thalya on the front line, and the united forces of evil to support her, players will have to use every trick in the book to best those do-gooders of the overworld, once and for all!

To celebrate the announcement of Dungeons 3, Kalypso Media has prepared a short teaser trailer showing the new (and familiar) faces you can expect to see, and a glimpse at some of the new features to expect when the game is unveiled in full at GDC 2017.

About Dungeons 3:

Unleash your dark side by creating a unique underground dungeon from a huge array of rooms, traps and structures. Raise the most terrifying army the world has ever seen, by choosing from despicable creatures such as orcs, succubae, zombies and much, much more. Then, once you have built your forces, emerge from the darkness and guide your army to the light of the overworld, where you will corrupt the land and dispatch anything even vaguely heroic, cute or unicorn-shaped. And in a first for the Dungeons series, experience randomly generated levels, so that no two sessions are alike – never-ending fun for any evil conqueror!

Features:

  • The dungeon manager you’ve been waiting for: Dungeons 3 is the biggest, best, and evil-est dungeon sim yet, topped off with a fully reworked overworld RTS mode.
  • Under new management: Command the united forces of evil under the guidance of new character Thalya and lead them to victory.
  • Size does matter: Extensive single player campaign with 20 missions and more than 20 hours of playtime, randomly generated levels, a brand-new co-op mode for two players, more rooms, and more unique abilities.
  • Speak no evil: The fan-favourite Dungeons narrator is back with his unmistakable voice, continuing the Dungeons legacy in the best way possible.
