DC Comics to Release The Last God D&D Sourcebook

This DC Black Label series is getting a fifth edition compatible 40-page supplement in April.

Thanks to the open game license, an unexpected name is about to release a Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook. DC Comics decided to dip into the pen and paper RPG realm with a book of rules covering the city of Cain Anuun.

The Last God: Tales from the Book of Ages is scheduled to drop on April 29. The 40-page one-shot 5th Edition supplement will set you back $4.99 and will make its appearance at local comic shop retailers, as well as digital storefronts.

DC Comics commented on the release, saying:

In Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Riccardo Federici’s The Last God, the city of Cain Anuun serves as a rich and layered backdrop to a story of fantasy, adventure and horror. The evil armies of the Last God are marching across the mythical city, laying waste to everything in its path and a group of unlikely allies are the last line of defense against absolute destruction.

DC isn't the only company to unexpectedly get into tabletop RPGs lately, as fast-food giant Wendy's released the free Feast Of Legends PDF back in October.

In addition to new primary and third-party book releases, D&D is set to make a major digital return with at least eight games currently in various stages of production.

Right now, the 4-player co-op hack 'n slash Dark Alliance and long-awaited return to roleplaying roots Baldur's Gate 3 are the next video games in the franchise slated for release.

Back on the tabletop side, Wizards Of The Coast recently confirmed that Explorer's Guide to Wildemount is the next campaign setting hardcover. That tome will bring the homebrew world of the popular Critical Role series into official D&D canon.
