We chat with Mathieu Girard, CEO and Creative Director of Tactical Adventures about Solasta: Crown of the Magister, a D&D RPG licensed by Wizards of the Coast. This is a classic tabletop RPG in video game form, and trying to give players the same amount of freedom they would have in a tabletop version can be a nightmare.
The Solasta developers at Tactical Adventures received a Dungeons and Dragons license from Wizards of the Coast to use the Dungeons & Dragons SRD 5.1 ruleset to make Solasta Crown of the Magister (their D&D video game).
This Solasta Crown of the Magister trailer shows off Solasta’s new universe and world, complete with original lore. In the game, players are sent on a quest to find the ancient evil that could destroy all of Solasta. To make a D&D video game that felt just like its tabletop ancestor—once the game is started—Solsata Crown of the Magister made the game’s four-player party unchangeable. During the game, players can’t be added to or changed. So, It’s crucial to keep your party alive throughout the whole campaign.
The gameplay featured in this Solasta gameplay trailer shows off the vertical tactical combat on which the game prides itself. Solasta Crown of the Magister gameplay will push players to think in three dimensions as they climb, jump, and fly around the digital tabletop board.
For another Solasta trailer, Solasta gameplay and more about the Solasta Crown of the Magister game stay tuned to IGN.
