If you’ve been waiting for the mashup between Baldur’s Gate and Betrayal at the House on the Hill, you are in luck, as Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is in stores now.

A shadow has fallen over Baldur’s Gate, summoning evil from the depths, and it is up to the players to build and explore the iconic city’s seedy alleys and deadly catacombs to vanquish the dark forces.

“Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate combines the strengths of both Dungeons & Dragons and the original Betrayal at House on the Hill,” says Mike Mearls, Senior Manager, Dungeons & Dragons Design and Development. “Both games are about exploring strange places and facing horrible monsters. Betrayal adds an element of horror and mistrust to the mix that D&D has never quite had before. If our playtests are anything to go by, it’s an addition that D&D fans are eager to embrace.”

Designed for ages 12 and up, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate allows players to take on the role of an iconic D&D character class and race as they embark on a thrilling tale of adventure and intrigue making it the perfect introduction to the world of Dungeons & Dragons. The city of Baldur’s Gate is revealed tile by tile, creating a completely new game every time. With 50 unique haunts each telling a different D&D-themed story, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate keeps players coming back for a new challenge again and again.

This is a collaboration between Avalon Hill and Wizards of the Coast. Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate has a MSRP of $50.00. I guess I know what gamers will be doing this weekend!
