Gauntlet Reboot Announced

Gauntlet, the fantasy-themed hack-and-slash arcade game, will receive a reboot. As of this writing, the upcoming Gauntlet has only been announced for PC via Steam and interestingly, the title will support both Steam OS and Steam Machines.

Warner Bros. Interactive is in charge of publishing this modernized version of Gauntlet and the game will be part of the “WB Games Vault”, which is the name the company gives to their portfolio of digital games. Through this portfolio, WB expects to release digital titles from both Warner Bros. and Midway.

Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios (Magicka,) the new Gauntlet is a traditional dungeon crawler or action role-playing game. Players will be able to select four character classes (Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie or Elf) and each of these characters has its strengths and weaknesses. Once a character has been selected, you’ll be able to slay monsters, locate special items and complete various challenges.
