New Gauntlet Title Announced for PC This Summer

Gauntlet reboot has been announced for a summer release on the PC by Warner Bros Interactive. The Gauntlet remake is set to debut on Steam later this summer, and will include full SteamOS support.
Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios (Magicka/Showdown Effect) the game offers top down gameplay for up to four people and players can choose between Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, or Elf, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Each dungeon will contain numerous traps, bonuses and unlockables, as well as an assortment of fantasy monsters such as ghosts, grunts, demons, spiders, sorcerers and skeleton warriors.
It kicks off the firm's WB Games Vault initiative, which sees paid versions of popular Warner and Midway franchises releasing direct-to-digital.
"With Gauntlet we combined the arcade style of the original game with an entirely new look and feature set that includes emergent, local and online four-player gameplay," explained Warner Bros' David Haddad.
The original Gauntlet game was released in 1985 on the Atari and became a huge hit in game arcades. It will be interesting to see how the remake pans out and from the looks of the trailer down below looks like it follows the vein of Diablo III.

I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
