After the successful launch of localized Dungeons & Dragons products in October 2021, Wizards of the Coast is thrilled to announce the next products to be released in local languages:
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything
Release date (German/French): 22 February, 2022. (Italian/Spanish): TBA 2022
Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft
Release date (German/French/Italian/Spanish): 17 May, 2022
Dungeon Master’s Screen- Reincarnated
Release date (German/French/Italian/Spanish): June 2022
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is the first extension of the Dungeons & Dragons core rules and introduces new options for players and Dungeon Masters alike. The crime lord and beholder Xanathar is known to hoard information on friend and foe like few others. This wealth of information is summarized in this book containing:
Over 25 new subclasses for the character classes in the Player’s Handbook
Dozens of new spells, feats, and a system for backstory randomization
A variety of tools for the Dungeon Master to use traps, magic items, downtime activities, and more
This book is a great addition to the Player’s Handbook and Dungeon Master’s Guide.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the release of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything in Italian and Spanish will be separated from the release in French and German, and it will be in 2022, at a date we will confirm later in the year. We don’t expect this split in release dates by language to continue for other products in future.
In Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft, players and Dungeon Masters explore the eerie edges of the multiverse: the Domains of Dread, nightmare demiplanes from the Ravenloft setting in Dungeons & Dragons. The monster scholar Rudolph Van Richten has studied the numerous terrors and fearful creatures roaming these realms. With his guidance adventurers dive into horrific mysteries or battle terrifying horrors in the Mists of Ravenloft. This compilation offers many hours of spine-chilling gameplay:
Discover the Domains of Dread for the first time in Fifth Edition with rules and advice to build custom domains and the Darklords who lurk there
New backgrounds and trinkets themed specifically for a horror setting
New lineages for a horror-themed character: Dhampir, Hexblood, and Reborn
New subclasses relating to the dark demiplanes: College of Spirits for bards and the Undead pact for warlocks
A horrific assortment of creatures and dark gifts
And a brand-new adventure!
Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft will be released in German, French, Italian and Spanish for the first time ever!
Dungeon Masters looking for a perfect accessory can look forward to this June – when the new local language Dungeon Master Screen – Reincarnated will be available! An excellent resource for new and existing Dungeons Masters to facilitate inspired adventures and an engaging play experience. In addition, the screen will keep players’ eyes away from any notes or dice rolls which the DM would like to keep secret.
Fans can look forward to an exciting line-up of more localized “latest and greatest” titles from Wizards of the Coast in 2022 with roughly one release per quarter. Don’t miss any updates on all new releases via the local language website or social media.
