+ - Latest Edition of Dungeons and Dragons Releases->

Submitted by GammaKitsune
GammaKitsune (826576) writes "The Player's Handbook for the fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons, formerly known as "D&D Next", released today to major bookstores and online retailers across the US. The Player's Handbook, which contains core rules for gameplay and character creation, is one of three three core rulebooks that developer Wizards of the Coast plans to release in 2014. The Monster Manual is scheduled to release in late September, and the Dungeon Master's Guide will release in mid November. Also out today is the first of two adventure modules in which players team up to battle against the dragon goddess Tiamat.

Fifth edition has a lot to prove following the highly-controversial fourth edition, the rise of competing roleplaying game Pathfinder, and two years of public playtesting. Initial reviews posted on Amazon appear overwhelmingly positive at the time of writing, but more skeptical gamers may wish to take a look at the free "Basic Rules" posted on the official D&D website. The basic rules contain all the bare essentials needed to create a character or run your own adventure, and will serve both as a free introduction for new players and as a holdover for long time players until the remaining two rulebooks are released."
