Party-based RPG Sword Coast Legends is out on 29 September, but the most eager players will be able to get campaigning from 11 September.
11 September marks the start of the game’s Head Start campaign, which will be broken into three sessions. The first runs from 11 September to 13 September, and is only available to those who pre-ordered one of the Limited Edition or Campaign Collector’s packs. The second, open to everyone, will run from 18 September through 20 September. The third and final session runs from 24 September through to the game’s 29 September launch.
The first two sessions focus on the Dungeon Master modes of Campaign Creation and Dungeon Crawl. The third will also feature this, but Design Council members (those with the Limited Edition or Campaign Collector’s packs) will also have access to the Story Campaign.
In order to get in on this, you’ll need to have linked your game purchase to an account on SwordCoast.com, with access details being sent through to the linked email account sometime on the week starting 11 September.
If you’re curious about what all of this actually means, some videos released a little while after E3 should give you a good overview of Sword Coast Legends. Check ’em out.
