Dungeon Siege III Web Comic Announced

A press release sent over by Square Enix this morning reveals plans for a Dark Horse-created web comic based on Obsidian Entertainment's Dungeon Siege III. The comic will be available on the official website, the Dark Horse digital store, and as a print version inside copies of the game sold by Wal-mart, so there should be no difficulty in obtaining a copy:
LOS ANGELES Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today today its latest team up with Dark Horse Comics. Fans will be reintroduced to the world of the Dungeon Siege® series with an all new digital comic, revealing essential pieces of this epic role playing saga!

The Dungeon Siege III web comic will deliver three exciting vignettes by writer Jeremy Barlow (Star Wars: Rebellion) and artists Iban Coello (Iron Man: Iron Protocols) and Sergio Abad (Transformers: Prime). The 10th Legion has fallen, but heroism is not dead in the kingdom of Ehb, even as civil war tears the country apart.

The three Dungeon Siege III comics will be available on DungeonSiege.com and for free download at the Dark Horse Digital Store: digital.darkhorse.com

An all new, full color print comic will be packaged with Dungeon Siege III exclusively at Wal mart when the game, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, Inc., arrives on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC on May 31, 2011.


In DUNGEON SIEGE III, players assume the role of one of four heroes, fighting for the sake of their fallen comrades to restore the land of Ehb. Conflict is constant in this action RPG and decisions have lasting consequences, allowing players to alter the storyline. Choose to battle along with a companion or fight for honor with up to four friends via online co op play. DUNGEON SIEGE III allows for two players to experience the story from start to finish in local co op mode. Thanks to the robust AI, DUNGEON SIEGE III's co op multiplayer mode allows players to seamlessly drop in and out of battle without interrupting the action or impacting the campaign.

Players will experience the much awaited next chapter in the DUNGEON SIEGE lore on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
