I have been itching for a new version of Gauntlet for quite some time and it seems WB Interactive is tapping Arrowhead Studios to the task. They have announced the game will initially ship on PC with Steam and later come to SteamOS.

Snip from the press release...

"... Gauntlet, a completely modernized action RPG version of the celebrated dungeon crawler, will be available this summer via Steam for PC, offering full support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines shipping the second half of this year."

The trailer for the game looks like a nice next step for Gauntlet but I am curious how they will improve the hack in slash formula the game invented so long ago. What do you think of the Gauntlet reboot?

I may be wrong, but this also seems like the first game by a major publisher to be announced for SteamOS. Now that GDC is upon us till PAX East in April, I expect to hear about more games coming to SteamOS.

OK, that looks like tons of fun! Sold!

Too bad they went with Arrowhead Studios and not Arrow Dynamic Studios, but oh well ;)

Arrow Dynamic Studios was way too expensive.
