Dungeon Siege Chat @ The Zone

Microsoft sent out this official press release about a chat with Chris Taylor of the Dungeon Siege development team. You can bet at least a couple of us from GameBanshee will be there:

    Microsoft today announced that on Monday, May 7, from 6pm to 7pm PDT, Chris Taylor, lead designer of Dungeon Siege, will be in the Zone Theater Chat Room (http://www.zone.com/zzzz/auditorium.asp) to talk about the highly anticipated RPG title from Gas Powered Games.

    Chris Taylor has spent more than a decade creating and designing video games. His portfolio includes such classics as Hardball II, 4D Boxing, Triple Play Baseball, and the critically acclaimed Total Annihilation RTS title. In May of 1998, Taylor founded Gas Powered Games on the east side of Seattle and immediately began work on Dungeon Siege.

    Slated for release in Fall 2001, Dungeon Siege is an action fantasy role-playing game featuring an immersive fully 3-D environment. Dungeon Siege plunges players into a continuous 3-D fantasy world on a quest to stop a mysterious evil that has been unleashed. Beginning with a single character, players can travel through the world and gather a party of up to 8 characters or choose to face the challenge alone. The fusion of action role-playing and real-time strategy controls in Dungeon Siege impels players into one over-the-top battle after another as the storyline unfolds.
