DS3_Xbox360_BoxArtSquare Enix now owns the rights to the Dungeon Siege series are have been working with Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment on Dungeon Siege III. The multiplayer dungeon crawler (it supports up to four players online) comes out on May 31 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.


Pre-order Dungeon Siege III and you’ll get a bonus. The item you get depends on where you reserve the game.


GameStop is giving away two exclusive items. The Talisman of the Grand Mage reduces damage and lets players use a magic attack that injures enemies in melee range. The Burning Band of Scorch ups the amount of damage a player’s attacks deal and sets enemies ablaze.

Amazon buyers get the Bite of the Arakun, a ring that poisons enemies or softens defenses making them vulnerable to follow up attacks.




Best Buy is giving out the Sacred Heart of the Legion, a charm that restores a bit of health and pushes enemies back every time the wearer is struck during battle.




Walmart is offering a tangible bonus, a mini-comic from Dark Horse and a tiny strategy guide from Prima Games. Finally, Steam purchasers get digital copies of Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege II for free as a pre-order gift.

    the box art looks awesome

  • Ereek

    I’m glad they’ve finally announced a release date. May 31st seems like a good time, to me.

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    They chose a great release date as it will be a great start to the summer quarter of videogame releases. I will get it from AMZN because poison is always a great use. I hope I can find people online to play with me!!!! Woot, Ill be there on Day 1 Baby, Day 1!!

    I find that that the in-game pre-order bonuses tend to be useful at the beginning of games, but not later on, so I’ll probably end up pre-ordering on Steam.

  • Gabriel May

    Man I still need to complete the first one. I swear I have the biggest back catalouge in terms of video games to complete.

    If I was going to pre-order this I’d go with GameStop since a) you get two items and b) they sound the most useful.

  • Mark Shaver

    Geez, Calm Down dude. What’d he ever do to you? No need to be an asshole just because he likes different things.

  • Arcm

    Damn Sigmendd did Tsuna piss in your cheerios?

    If he did I’m sorry… I love cheerios.

  • Hraesvelgr

    Come on now, his comments might be a bit over the top, but there’s no need to outright insult him.

  • Heehee

    Whoa! A fuse blew. Better get a new one… DAY 1, BABY!

  • Spencer

    Thanks for playing SigmenddArthur, but this kind of attitude towards other commenters is not welcome here. You’ve been banned. (Again, yes we know.)

  • SigmenddArthur

    Ever since I signed up here, he’s done nothing but creep me the hell out.

    Just sayin’.

  • Guest

    He likes EVERYTHING. On day one.

  • Mark Shaver

    How about you just, you know, ignore him? He’s just as entitled to his likes and dislikes as you are and there’s no reason to try and make him feel like dirt for having them, especially when he said nothing directly to you.

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    Im creepy? Thats the first time Ive been called that. I guess I will add it to the list of “things people called me.”

  • SigmenddArthur

    Are you trying to say I’m the only person who’s annoyed by him?

    Or should I just bring out some articles in where even you were particularly ugly towards him.

    At least I can say I was up-front about how I felt, instead of making fun of him behind his back…

  • Mark Shaver

    I’ve always been upfront about how I felt about what he “SAID”. I attack idiocy, not idiots.

    There’s a significant difference between correcting someone or disagreeing with someone and outright Attacking someone with no provocation.

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    lol Dude, wow you know me so well! Day 1 is the best time to get everything!
