Warner Bros. announces Gauntlet reboot for PC ’cause Warrior needs food—badly!

Posted on March 17, 2014 AT 12:09pm

Arrowhead, whose previous works include 2011’s Magicka and more the upcoming Helldivers for PlayStation platforms, is handling development while Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment takes care of publishing.

Just as with the 1985 classic and its subsequent sequels, Gauntlet will be a four-player co-op action-RPG in which players can choose between four classes: Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, or Elf—each with their own unique attacks and abilities.

“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,” Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt said in a press statement. “Gauntlet is one of the original and best known videogame properties and we are looking forward to creating a fresh, yet true to the original, take on a multiplayer masterpiece.”

According to Warner Bros., Gauntlet will also support SteamOS and be released on Steam Machines later in the year.
