As the topic says, Sword Coast Legends will no longer be available for purchase at the end of December. NSpace, the developer closed down last year and the publisher, Digital Extremes, has their contract ending shortly. There is a final sale for those who are interested, and then it should be gone for good.

As a personal note, I enjoyed it for the simple action fest it was. It wasn't a great game, but it felt like a traditional romp, even if the ruleset was more inspired by D&D 5e than anything else.

I found the ruleset more inspired by Dragon Age than anything else. Perspective is a funny, old thing. :)

The game tried to do too much and did all of it quite poorly (my opinion). Playable(ish), but at the end of the day, a lousy game. I'd be hard pressed to even recommend it at 67% off (still not worth it really)...but hey, I suppose it's a small price to pay to satisfy curiosity.

I do hope the nSpace devs managed to land on their collective feet at other studios, but the game itself deserved the fate it found.

I'm glad I own it. Sad that I'll never be able to introduce anyone else to it. Being able to play with friends is always fun, and I really enjoyed the NPC banter. Hommit Shaw was great, and all the little tidbits of lore, like exotic foods from various parts of the Realms was fun to explore. Oh well.

I am interested in whatever comments owners of the game can provide. Are there specific locations that are explored ? I am not wondering because of the price, but rather the time I'd have to put into it.

PC or Console?

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."
