Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Info |

Game Informer has a hands on mini preview & four gameplay videos of Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom.

Multiplayer fans (Henning) should be pleased with the multiplayer options that are available in UL: DK. If you have two PS3 pads then you & a friend can kick ass sharing the same screen, rather than a split screen, which is nice but could mean a your movements are restricted by invisible barriers. However, if you want some online multiplayer action with three of your PS3 owning friends, each character will have their own screen, meaning freedom of movement & no invisible barriers.

The game’s length seems to fall in between short & medium, with an expected completion time of between 12 & 18hrs depending on how good you are at the game & whether you play it alone or with friends.

There are no potions to heal yourself with as red orbs will do that for you after you’ve defeated enemies. Blue orbs will fill your magic gauge & Gold will boost your bank balance, although there’s no mention of what you can spend your gold on. Probably weapons, armour, magic spells & items etc.

You can also save your progress at any point in the game although you can only re-spawn at certain locations in each stage. Hopefully there will be a sensible amount of checkpoints in the game.

The game will also feature downloadable content with a free multiplayer death match mode already promised by Sony Online Entertainment. Game Informer also says that you could be able to pay for a fourth character class, aswell as extra stages, maps & stories, all for a price of course.

It hasn’t taken them long to fleece gamers for more cash! I for one won’t be paying for extra content if I get this game unless it adds massively to the games lifespan & replayability.

There are four videos for you to download from GI although they may take a while depending on your connection speed.

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Gameplay Videos

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Gameplay Info

  • It actually looks like a lot of fun. I’ve played the Baldurs Gate games on PS2, which I think are called Champions of Norrath in North America, and it looks like that type of game which which I quite enjoyed.

    It’s a whole lot better that what was first shown all those months back & which drew a lot of criticism from almost everybody.

  • Actually, here for the PS2 there was:

    Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance
    Baldur’s Gate: Dark Allliance 2
    Champions of Norrath
    Champions of Norrath: Return to Arms

    I’m still trying to find a used copy of “Baldur’s Gate: Dark Allliance 2” which is a good game which I rented, but can’t find a copy to buy. I’ve played all the other games to completion. I love these games, and they’re a lot of fun to play multiplayer, of course. The first two were only two player co-op (I think), while the Champions games were both 4 player, which is a blast. BG:DA2 and CoN:RtA were both a bit buggy.

  • I dont know…

    This game looks like a bad “rip off” of God of War. REALLY bad…

  • No, it’s not that kind of game.

    It’s a top-down RPG, much like the other games we’ve mentioned. Diablo and Diablo II made the genre famous.
