Gauntlet Returns this Summer on PC
Filed under: GAUNTLET

Warner Bros. will remake the arcade favorite Gauntlet this summer for the PC.

Players will be able to choose between the classic Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard, and Elf, and they will have to fight off hordes of enemies hack-n-slash style. Each character will have a unique special attack and set of abilities, and all dungeons will be procedurally generated.

According to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Gauntlet will be the first in their new WB Games Vault lineup that will consist of a series of downloadable games from Warner Bros. and Midway and a few original games.

Warner Bros. has enlisted Arrowhead Game Studios to work on the port.

"To us at Arrowhead, Gauntlet is one of the most defining games from our childhoods, and it's amazing to be able to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on a brand new version," Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios, said. "Gauntlet is one of the original and best known video game properties and we are looking forward to creating a fresh, yet true to the original, take on a multiplayer masterpiece."

Gauntlet will release on Steam for PC.

I loved this game as a kid. I use to steal money from my mom, head down to the local pizza place and sit there all day playing it. I remember other kids would join in to play with me. Ended up making some life long friendships from the people I met while playing.

No point doing a Gauntlet repeat. Had its time, had its place.

What's the goal of the game? Play it over and over against AI hordes just seeing how many levels you reach? Surely going to wear thin quickly!

Another low-budget remake of a classic 90s game? and its for PC, not even iOS / android... what's the point, who would ever buy this.

Also, I noticed that those skeletons sure were bleeding heavily for enemies that aren't supposed to have blood :P
