Do-Over: Gauntlet Update Is The Game Devs Envisioned 

Patch me do

Arrowhead Studios' latest dev blog update for Gauntlet official site] pretty much doubles as a post-mortem. Written by game director Emil Englund (and presumably also Marvel hero, with that alliteration), it's revealed the team haven't been too happy with their reboot of ye olde dungeon runner.

Which, perhaps, isn't hugely surprising. The game released last year to moderate reviews; and likewise, Adam's take on it is basically a textual shrug and grunt. The studio appear have a similar opinion. Englund writes: "In truth, we were never fully satisfied with how Gauntlet turned out. So, rather than just fixing little things here and there, we have been working on the core of the game to turn it into what we originally envisioned."

Arrowhead will be releasing a big, free content update in the next couple of months, which will include a new game mode and improvements to both the campaign and Colosseum mode. There's no exact release date so far, although the devs will be releasing teasers and info on their site over the coming months.
