Torn asunder, the delicate balance of power between the kingdom of Ehb's powerful factions has fallen apart. As one of the few remaining members of the disgraced protectors of the land, the 10th Legion, it is up to you to rebuild the once great Legion and stop Ehb from falling into darkness. Joined by a group of unique companions, you will travel through the striking land of Ehb defeating all manner of villains and beasts through a combination of heroic abilities, screen shaking magic and fearsome weapons.
Dungeon Siege III seamlessly blends intuitive action gameplay, a robust RPG system featuring a large selection of abilities, an extensive multiplayer component and the depth of story Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment are known for creating.
Customers who pre-purchase Dungeon Siege III through Steam will be given free digital copies of the classic Dungeon Siege I and Dungeon Siege II games that they can access and play immediately. Additionally, all PC versions of the upcoming epic action-RPG will include a host of Steamworks features, including auto-updating, Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud support, downloadable content and more.
"Providing Dungeon Siege I and Dungeon Siege II free of charge through Steamworks is Square Enix’s way of showing appreciation to the fans of the Dungeon Siege franchise," said David Hoffman, executive producer for Dungeon Siege III. "Selecting Steamworks to be integrated into the upcoming Dungeon Siege III title made perfect sense as we wanted to provide the best possible gameplay experience for PC gamers and long-standing fans of the series.”
“Dungeon Siege III is joining a long line-up of Square Enix titles using Steamworks,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development for Valve. “Our focus for Steam is on enabling developers to spend time on creating value for our customers, and seeing theDungeon Siege franchise re-emerge, with its all-new co-op mode and inclusion of Steamworks, is a great example of that.”Key Features
