Gauntlet preview: dungeon party

Gauntlet preview: dungeon party

80s dungeon crawling classic Gauntlet is coming back this summer with a new game developed by Arrowhead, best known for their work on Magicka.

Like the original, the update features four characters: the Elf, the Valkyrie, the Wizard, and the Warrior. The group must set out to clear dungeons from evil monsters, from skeletons to fire-spitting demons to death itself. Along the way, they'll use their various weapons to solve puzzles and break open objects to collect loot, which they can use to resurrect themselves once their life has run out.
