Gauntlet Slayer Edition-PLAZA

Nearly 30 years ago Morak first took his place in the Gauntlet to shape it to his will and torment any adventurer daring to brave its depths. Last year he made his re-appearance to challenge champions on PC, and your cries for more ways to thwart his evil plans were heard.
Now, it has been decreed that the heroes of Gauntlet must vanquish Morak’s minions once more, in ways unimaginable this August!

We are happy to announce that Gauntlet: Slayer Edition will be a free upgrade for all current and future owners of Gauntlet on PC when it is released on August 11th. As we had hinted at earlier, this has been in the works now for a while and it’s been so frustrating not being able to just tell everyone the news right away.
We’ve been enhancing a lot of the assets in the game, both Characters and Environments, as well as improving on the game mechanics.
This time around, we wanted to explore the Heroes and their Abilities more in-depth giving them a bigger toolset for players to explore, as well as a new Game Mode in which to exercise their rights as self-proclaimed monster slayers.

Since Hero Equipment plays a larger role now, we have reworked the loadout mechanic so that it can be done by four players simultaneously and regardless of game mode. We have added Weapon abilities, and the Relics and Potions also work differently now.
For the story campaign, we wanted to give the feeling that you are descending deeper and deeper into the Gauntlet, while at the same time giving players more control over level selection. We have also pushed the differences in each environment more, increasing variation both visually and in monster encounters.
Since all our focus has been needed on this free upgrade for PC, regretfully, the SteamOS version of the game has been cancelled. We hoped to have had that version ready by the time Valve had officially launched it later this year, but together with WBIE, it was decided that our limited resources were better dedicated to making the PC version the best it possibly could be. In our judgment that’s both what you PC players deserve, and what the PS4 version needs for the August release. We’re hoping that instead, you will enjoy the updates coming next month in Gauntlet: Slayer Edition as much as we do ourselves!
That’s some of the stuff we’ve been working on these past months, but more details to come shortly in following posts. Prepare to Re-Invade the Darkness this Summer!


  • “An idealized reboot of the series – immediately familiar yet totally fresh.” – Digital Trends
  • “You haven’t needed food this badly since the 1980’s” – Gamespot
  • “Just the way fans would want it” - Destructoid
  • “Fans of the classic 80s game have nothing to worry about.” - PrimaGames
  • “This classic quarter-muncher consumed a lot of my own money during summers as a kid, so it’s nice to see the fantasy gameplay live on this latest incarnation.” - Fortune
  • “With its simple, streamlined controls and the compatibility with SteamOS, ‘Gauntlet’ is clearly nostalgic for the living room-centric gaming of the early 90s. And it succeeds.” -Tom’s Guide
