Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun Review: Desert Desserts

Dungeon Siege III expansion coming this October

Prepare yourself to break free of the borders of Ehb this October when Square Enix and Obsidian release the first expansion for Dungeon Siege III, Treasures of the Sun. The downloadable pack will whisk players to the Aranoi Desert, where they will meet “hordes of new villains only to find a forgotten abbey hiding a long-lost secret: the greatest treasure of the Azunite faith.”

The expansion will also add a variety of tweaks and enhancements including:

  • New abilities: Players will be able to attain mastery of the arcane through powerful new attack, defense and healing abilities.
  • Level up to 35: Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun will further power up players by raising the game’s existing level cap from 30 to 35.
  • More monsters and items: Players will encounter new monsters in the Aranoi Desert—including mummies and giant skeletons—and will find more powerful items, adding to the thousands already available in Dungeon Siege III.
  • Reallocate Talent & Proficiency Points: Players can reallocate points spent in Proficiencies and Talents, enabling changes to character customization throughout the campaign.
  • New Enchanting System: Transmuting items now gives players chances at gaining powerful new Vials that allow them to enhance their weapons and armor through the DLC’s new enchanting system.

Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun will be priced at $9.99 and be available to download from Steam (PC), Xbox Live (Xbox 360) and the PlayStation Network (PS3) this October.

New Releases: FEAR 3, Dungeon Siege III, Shadows of the Damned, More

After multiple delays, FEAR 3 will be scaring gamers on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this week. The game was developed by Day 1 Studios, who took over for original developer Monolith Soft. FEAR 3 will be joined in stores this week by another threequel that has switched developers: Dungeon Siege III (PC, PS3, Xbox 360). The Dungeon Siege series was originally created by Gas Powered Games but the third entry was developed by sequel specialists Obsidian Entertainment.

Sequels aren’t the only games releasing this week as EA will be bringing Shadows of the Damned to the PS3 and Xbox 360. A collaboration between Grasshoper Manufacture’s Suda 51 and Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, the hellbound tale will be nothing if not original. But for a complete change of pace, this week also sees the release of the movie-to-game adaptation Cars 2 (DS, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360).

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
