The official launch date for Sword Coast Legends has been confirmed for September 8, 2015, with versions set to appear on both PS4 and Xbox One later this year. Pre-orders for the game are currently available via the official site, and through the launch on Sept. 8 you can also take advantage of a special 13% discount on pre-orders through Steam.

If you’re unfamiliar with Sword Coast Legends, it’s an upcoming RPG based on the wildly popular Forgotten Realms setting for Dungeons & Dragons. Perhaps one of the most notable and compelling aspects of the game, the Dungeon Master tools will not only allow you to create gameplay for parties of adventurers, but will allow you to properly DM the experience in real time.

To help spread the joy and cheer of good gaming to the masses, Sword Coast Legends will be hitting consoles sometime later this year. Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends shed some light on this decision in the official announcement:

"We've had a clear goal since day one to evoke the classic D&D experience between four players and a Dungeon Master, and to bring back memories of the great D&D games of the past," said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends. "After we announced and demonstratedSword Coast Legends to overwhelmingly positive response at GDC, the press, partners, and fans all requested more. They wanted Mac, so we're doing it. They wanted Linux, so we're doing it. They clamored for console... so we circled back and figured out how to do it without compromising our vision for PC gamers. This addition to our existing PC, Mac and Linux versions ensures gamers will be able to have that classic D&D experience whenever, wherever and however they want."

"We love that Sword Coast Legends delivers the authentic D&D experience by letting friends tell great fantasy stories together", said Nathan Stewart, brand director of Dungeons & Dragons. "With Sword Coast Legends being available on so many platforms, it doesn't matter if you game on a couch, at the kitchen table or your desk -- you'll be able to join your party for some glorious D&D dungeon delves."
