Microsoft released the following press release today, in regard to their and Gas Powered Games' upcoming Dungeon Siege:


    Microsoft today unveiled new content on the official Dungeon Siege Web site, located at http://www.microsoft.com/games/dungeonsiege/. The site now provides even more detailed information on the game; including box art, exclusive screenshots, updated FAQ, and the first excerpt of the rich lore that provides the backdrop for the world of Dungeon Siege.

    "So far we haven't said much about Ehb, the Kingdom in which the game takes place," explains Neal Hallford, writer for Dungeon Siege. "Once everyone finally sees the game, however, I think they'll be surprised at how much depth and variety we've put into the story. It's truly a living, breathing world."

    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.
