Developer Brian Seal Entertainment is getting ready to release their dungeon-crawler Dark Quest 3 out of Early Access next week. The full 1.0 release of Dark Quest 3 is planned for May 24, 2023, when the game will release fully not just on PC but will also make its console debut as well. Dark Quest 3 is a treat for players who love playing tabletop RPGs in real life but unfortunately, they are unable to continue their passion due to missing players or not having enough time to set them up anymore.
Check out the newly released launch trailer for Dark Quest 3 below to see the game in action:
In Dark Quest 3, you will sit down for a tabletop experience melding the tenets of dice-focused role-playing classics with card-based chance and strategy. You will work your way through deck after deck of dungeon encounters as you roll checks to get through deadly obstacles and face down enemies in fast-paced strategic combat. Each run in the game will bring fearsome new enemies to fight, powerful new allies to enlist, and cunning new tools & tactics to employ as you try to conquer each deck and finally stop the evil sorcerer bent on laying siege to the realm.
Each game of Dark Quest 3 will start at the hero camp where you will create your party and then go on a journey throughout the world by choosing different areas. You will choose each area based on your party’s strengths and weaknesses and draw different adventure cards, roll dice, fight monsters and reach the chaos castle to defeat the sorcerer and his magic. The Elder is keen to deliver the following message to you:
Heed my warning well, friends. A new evil has risen in the East. A power-hungry sorcerer of chaos magic is laying siege to the realm. That is why I called you here. You are heroes, one and all. And without you, all hope is lost. You will face untold challenges you may not survive, and old alliances will need to be rebuilt to stand a chance. I will guide you as best I can, but the rest is up to you
Key features of the game include:
- 12 heroes and over 60 monsters
- Procedurally generated adventures and combat
- Rogue-lite experience where you create a party of heroes and play until you win or die
- 13 areas to play with over 150 adventure cards

- 80+ combat cards ranging from spells, weapons, potions, and equipment
