Wizards of the Coast have a big new event to engage gamers. The popular Forgotten Realms setting is getting a bit of a relaunch and it is happening via The Sundering.
The Sundering is a story that crosses many platforms; books, mobile games and in-store games. The microsites DungeonsAndDragons.com/Sundering is in place to provide information and the Sundering Adventurer’s Chronicle tool as a place for players to record their plays.
On the mobile front the Arena of War is a free-to-play for iPad, iPhone and Android device (okay, they said iPod Touch too. Really). Arena of War is a 3D battle game, set in Forgotten Realms, that brings on the multiplayer action in good versus evil battles.
There will be six new novels: R.A. Salvatore (The Companions), Paul Kemp (The Godborn), Erin Evans (The Adversary), Troy Denning (The Sentinel), Richard Lee Byers (The Reaver) and Ed Greenwood (The Herald).
Nathan Stewart, Dungeons & Dragons Brand Director at Wizards of the Coast, said;
“We are elated to begin this extremely exciting chapter in the history of D&D,”
“Utilizing great digital entertainment, dramatic story-telling techniques and thrilling and immersive events, The Sundering ushers in a new era for the future of the franchise. We invite and encourage the legions of D&D adventurers to join us on this heroic adventure to change the canon of the Realms.”
