Square Enix has announced that Dungeon Siege III is in development at Obsidian Entertainment, under the watchful eye of original creator Gas Powered Games and its boss Chris Taylor.
"Allying the intuitive gameplay of an action game with a proven role-playing system, Dungeon Siege 3 will take place in an immersive world where each of the player's decisions will have consequences," it says here. In French.
The story concerns a fragile equilibrium between powerful factions being disturbed, and you, the protector of the disgraced kingdom of Ehb, are the only one who can unite them.
It's a "totally multiplayer" experience, "with friends or online", and will also feature in-game companions to recruit.
