Sword Coast Legends suffers slight delay

The next game to bring your tabletop to your desktop is getting a slight delay, but it may just be worth it for the extra polish.

Sword Coast Legends, the latest RPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms campaign world, is in need of a bit of polish. So it will release for PC, Mac and Linux on September 29, rather than the originally intended release date of September 8. The console release is currently slated for later this year.

According to Sword Coast Legends game director Dan Tudge, there were things that simply needed some work before they would be willing to release the final product to waiting Dungeons & Dragons enthusiasts, and so development was thrown slightly off schedule.

If you preorder the Limited Edition Collector's pack, you get this handsome guy, too.

However, in return for their patience, fans will get a finished product worthy of the hype, according to Tudge. In a recent interview, he said:

"...our fans deserve nothing less than whatever it takes on our part to deliver the compelling roleplaying dynamic of Dungeons & Dragons tabletop to the world of cooperative multiplayer video games. If that means the game needs a few additional weeks of balancing, tuning and general polish — so be it.”

The reward for that patience doesn't stop with a better finished product, though. All who preorder the game by September 8 will receive the Rage of Demons DLC free of charge. 

Also, while the game retails at $39.99, if you preorder, you pay only $34.99.
