Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment  announced today that the release date for Gauntlet, the fully modernized reboot of the classic dungeon crawler, has moved to the 23rdSeptember, 2014. The additional time was needed to fine-tune details in order to bring gamers an even more robust multiplayer experience.

Gauntlet  is still set to arrive on Steam for Windows® PC and will offer full support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines in 2015.  As a thank you for all fans who pre-ordered the game, WBIE has added a special in-game item as a bonus: The Spawn of Kerthull, a special Wizard’s Robe made from dead imps, who are children of the greater demon, Kerthull.

In addition, WBIE and developer Arrowhead Game Studios today released a new video that takes an in-depth look into the heroes, game modes and lore of the game. The video walkthrough is available to watch below

PAX Prime 2014 will feature a special opportunity for an early look at the game with “The Gauntlet” – a four-day livestream event where notable Penny Arcade personalities and other gaming / nerd celebrities will go head-to-head in a special tournament. “The Gauntlet” tourney will be held outside the Main Expo entrance in South Hall, where attendees can also get hands-on time with the game during the show.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
