The Game's Getting Delayed, But Here's A New Trailer

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that its Gauntlet revival will be arriving a bit later than previously announced. A new walkthrough video accompanied the news, which will either alleviate or amplify the sting, depending on your perspective.

The game, which was originally slated for a September 3 release, will now be coming to PC on September 23. According to Warner, the additional time was needed for fine-tuning the game.

While you wait, check out the video below. It shows quick profiles of each of the game's four characters, explains how they can be upgraded with gear and perks, and also provides a look at the game's environments. The floods of enemies that you'll be facing are definitely reminiscent of the series' arcade roots, and gamers of a certain age might recognize a few classic sound effects in there, too. Dungeons are both hand-created and procedurally generated, which should add to replayability. At long last, there's there's the possibility that someone can end a session of Gauntlet satisfied that they got their money's worth.

A Painful New Gameplay Trailer

I had the chance to go hands-on with the crushingly difficult Titan Souls at E3, and it was the closest I’ve come to tossing a controller. Don’t take that to mean I disliked it, though. I absolutely enjoyed the maddening defeats and the sweet, sweet victories.

Titan Souls is a string of brutal boss battles. You’ve got one hit point and one arrow, which you can summon back to you. Success requires fast thinking and even quicker reflexes.
