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.
