Spring Summoning

PC version of "Summoner" due in mid-April

A couple of weeks ago we reported that the PlayStation 2 version of "Summoner", a new 3D role-playing game from Volition and THQ, was due for release on March 23rd. Now we know that the PC version is expected to follow within weeks, with the latest reports saying "mid April". Claiming to offer over 50 hours of gameplay and featuring some rather nifty 3D accelerated graphics, along with the ability to control up to five characters at any one time and a whole gaggle of different monsters to summon ranging from dragons to minotaurs, Summoner is certainly looking rather promising at this stage. If you're not convinced, why not peruse the latest batch of screenshots from the game?
