Interactive Entertainment. “Multiplayer gameplay is at the core of Gauntlet’s appeal and now gamers have the option to play with friends and family locally and online.”…
“The Gauntlet franchise has always been a great source of inspiration to us and we’re extremely proud to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to bring back this classic,” said Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios. “We wanted to create a Gauntlet that was true to the original, with updated visuals and a feature set that resonates with what the original game could have been, had it not been for the technical limitations at the time.”
