WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW LAUNCH DATE FOR GAUNTLET™
New Gameplay Walkthrough Video Released, plus PAX Prime Details Unveiled

27th August, 2014 - Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) announced today that the release date for Gauntlet™, the fully modernized reboot of the classic dungeon crawler, has moved to the 23rd September, 2014. The additional time was needed to fine-tune details in order to bring gamers an even more robust multiplayer experience.

Gauntlet ™ is still set to arrive on Steam for Windows® PC and will offer full support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines in 2015. As a thank you for all fans who pre-ordered the game, WBIE has added a special in-game item as a bonus: The Spawn of Kerthull, a special Wizard's Robe made from dead imps, who are children of the greater demon, Kerthull.



In addition, WBIE and developer Arrowhead Game Studios today released a new video that takes an in-depth look into the heroes, game modes and lore of the game. The video walkthrough is available to watch via Youtube, http://youtu.be/QLm8D4f8njo and for download http://games.premiercomms.com/pics.asp?i=3101.
