Chris Taylor is at it again. He will help Obsidian Entertainment to develop Dungeon Siege 3 and much like Space Siege, Dungeon Siege 3 will focus on a single hero rather than a full group of heroes. Here are the first Dungeon Siege 3 pictures!
Gas Powered Games are the original developer of Dungeon Siege, but the main developers of Dungeon Siege 3 will be Obsidian Entertainment who were responsible for games like Neverwinter Nights, Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II or Alpha Protocol.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Chris Taylor said that many things will be similar to Dungeon Siege 1 and 2, but this time Dungeon Siege 3 will be coming for XBOX360, PS3 and PC and will attract a much larger audience.
Dungeon Siege 2 is one of my favorite RPGs. I can’t actually describe what was so great about the game, but it must have been the great gameplay and the epic atmosphere of the game. I’m definitely looking forward to the game, although I don’t quite understand why Taylor considers a large group of heroes to be “too much to manage”, because that was clearly one of the strengths of Dungeon Siege 2. However, I am certain that Obsidian and Gas Powered Games will create the best Dungeon Siege ever!

A press release by Square Enix revealed some of the feature and the story of Dungeon Siege 3:
Dungeon Siege 3 Story
Torn asunder, the delicate balance of power between the kingdom of Ehb’s powerful factions has fallen apart. As one of the few remaining members of the disgraced protectors of the land, the 10th Legion, it is up to you to rebuild the once great Legion and stop Ehb from falling into darkness. Joined by a group of unique companions, you will travel through the striking land of Ehb defeating all manner of villains and beasts through a combination of heroic abilities, screen shaking magic and pure cunning.
