Dungeon Siege 3 to get PC control makeover

by Prima Games Staff

Obsidian are set to release a patch for their newly released action-RPG Dungeon Siege III.

News came in an interview with the game’s lead designer Nick Chapman that you’ll find right here on this site. He was quizzed on the company’s expectations to PC gamers’ reactions and revealed the following:

“If there are PC gamers who are having a negative reaction it’s less about what the combat is, it’s more how the combat controls,” Chapman said.

“Actually this is one thing I would have liked to have spent more time on, and we are actually spending time on now. Basically, as long as PC gamers have a good way to control the combat they will enjoy it.

“One review – I can’t remember which – said if you play with a game pad the combat is great, so right now we’re working on improving the PC controls through an update.”

There was a small mention of “a more flesh-out tutorial system” on stats, and also on the idea of “having more unique armor variants.

“It’s always good sequel or DLC material,” he added.

Dungeon Siege III is a new addition to a series of games created the guys that made Supreme Commander, Gas Powered Games. Whilst previous incarnations were PC-only titles, Obsidian have brought the franchise to consoles, hopefully opening up a whole new market for them.

It’s available now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
