Gameloft is making a D&D survival life-sim RPG set in the Forgotten Realms

The Forgotten Realms are beckoning

Gameloft Montreal, the studio behind Disney Dreamlight Valley and LEGO Star Wars: Castaways, has revealed that it’s working on a new Dungeons and Dragons life-sim survival action RPG hybrid in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast, who owns the D&D IP.

The game is set to take place within the Forgotten Realms, the same D&D setting where the Baldur’s Gate series takes place, and also the backdrop for 2013’s Neverwinter along with a long list of other games. 

The Forgotten Realms were designed by game designer Ed Greenwood and are known to be filled with all manner of beasts and supernatural happenings, so there’s no telling what we’ll face once the as-yet unnamed game arrives.

There is no set release date or any more details currently available about the game but in their Instagram post, Gameloft states that: “Players can expect an adventure where the rich lore of this legendary franchise meets real-time survival in a unique campaign of resilience, camaraderie, and danger at nearly every turn. Stay tuned!”

Lee Kaburis, Executive Producer at Gameloft Montreal has said “we are all big fans of D&D and are already hard at work bringing our concept to life, including growing our team, and we look forward to sharing more details in the future.”

Eugene Evans, SVP of Digital Strategy and Licensing at Wizards of the Coast says about Gameloft: “Given their impressive record building incredible new experiences with major IPs combined with their passion for D&D and vision for this game, we are confident they will create an experience that will delight fans worldwide.”

According to the Instagram post, Gameloft is also actively recruiting for the project.
