Free comic with pre-order

Hey! Remember how there's a new Gauntlet happening and people were excited for it yet Warner Bros. is barely making a big deal about it? Well yeah it's still happening, set to arrive for just the PC/Steam on September 3.

The online/local four-player classic is up for pre-order, and if you want to "secure" your copy now you will be given extra items and a free comic the day the game is released. The comic is titled Gauntlet: Darkness Calls, and will detail the origins of "Gauntlet's most vile master," Morak.

More interesting to me from this press release was details on WB Games Vault, a program that will see Midway/Warner Bros IP paired with different game developers. For instance, this new Gauntlet is being made by Arrowhead Game Studios, famous for the Magicka series. It's nice to see a studio finally attempting to do something with their old IPs.

Here's Mega64 taking on Gauntlet, with Rocco and others acting as the "world's biggest Gauntlet fans" demonstrating their love for the game and all it entails.
