505 Games announces Puzzle Quest 3, coming out this year



Do not give me hope.

Earlier this month, publisher 505 Games bought Infinity Plus Two, the Australian studio that created the hybrid match-three / RPG series Puzzle Quest. This morning, 505 Games announced Puzzle Quest 3, a free-to-play sequel that takes place 500 years after the original.

A direct follow-up to the 2007 surprise hit Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, Puzzle Quest 3 will again see players traveling all over Etheria’s world, competing in 1-on-1 battles against the fantasy world by combining pearls to harvest resources, used to throw powerful spells and abilities. The official announcement mentions a “3D game world”, which is new in the series, as well as a kind of game twist that is not explained. I guess we will find out more when we get closer to the first release of mobile and PC. Here is a teaser trailer.

As one of the original game’s biggest, most passionate fans, I’m very cautiously excited as hell. I’m worried about what the transition to free-to-play means. What will revenue generation look like? Collectibles? Purchasable start-up? I shudder to think. On the other hand, there is a numbered sequel and not another free-to-play licensed spin-off that Marvel Puzzle Quest, and it’s being developed by the original studio, so I have hope.
