Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale revealed

PC, XBLA and PSN in spring 2011.

Atari has announced a new Dungeons & Dragons game, a PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network title called Daggerdale.

It's due out in the spring of 2011, and is being developed by Scratch: The Ultimate DJ creator Bedlam Games. Daggerdale is the first digital download release for the franchise on XBLA, PSN and PC.

Based on the announcement trailer, below, Daggerdale has a stylised aesthetic with a Mines of Moria feel. There's a dwarf.

"The Forgotten Realms are under attack by the evil Zhentarim," reads the official blurb. It centers on the "desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands".

There's an "engaging" multiplayer experience that introduces a "riveting" narrative and "treacherous" new characters.

You have to restore order to Nentir Vale by unlocking the secrets of the Mines of Tethyamar, defeating the evil within the treacherous Tower of the Void, leading to the final confrontation with Rezlus himself. Lovely.

There's solo and co-op play for up to four players. The combat is described as pick-up-and-play, with loads of weapons, fears and powers.

Daggerdale Winton?
