The classic game Gauntlet looks all set to be on the receiving end of a full modern reboot thanks to the combined efforts of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Arrowhead Game Studios. This particular game looks set to be on its way to Steam PC this particular summer, where it will include full SteamOS support to boot.
Warner Bros. has confirmed this in a press release today, where it will also launch the WB Games Vault, which happens to be a direct-to-digital initiative that will distribute paid games across multiple networks from current Warner and Midway brands, in addition to the original IP, of course.
With this reboot of Gauntlet, one will be able to relive the good old days yet again with the fabulous four character classes, namely the Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, and Elf as they go about dungeon crawling through various chambers that will hold treasure, monsters as well as traps.
David Haddad, Senior Vice President, Digital Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, shared, “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. Gauntlet will be the first title in the WB Games Vault portfolio, which will provide us with an opportunity to access emerging talent within the game development community and match unique skills and experience with our extensive library of properties.”
