Bulletin – Wizards Announce D&D Beyond

There’s always big announcements and features coming out of PAX East, the most recent and exciting – particularly for role players – is Wizard’s announcement of D&D Beyond.

A new digital app said to support a wide range of devices, the company has their sights set on improving how we manage games of D&D at the tabletop. Rather than simply another virtual tabletop solution, Beyond aims to replace the traditional pen & paper elements of the game while still keeping face-to-face as a core element.

“D&D Beyond speaks to the way gamers are able to blend digital tools with the fun of storytelling around the table with your friends…”

“…These tools represent a way forward for D&D, and we’re excited to get them into the hands of players soon!”

Nathan Stewart, Senior Director  – Dungeons & Dragons

Check out the video below for a quick look at what we can expect:

Pretty exciting stuff for all the D&D fans out there, a solution like this has often been teased by Wizards of the Coast for a few years now (harking back to 4th edition) so it’ll be interesting to see what comes out of it.

If you’re super keen, you can sign up for the Beta program now. Otherwise you can check out the official announcement here. We’ll keep following this one as more information arrives.
