Dungeons & Dragons has been entertaining roleplaying fans for decades, and digital versions have existed before. Now, virtual tabletop platform Fantasy Grounds has brought an official version to Steam.

The software was already available as a virtual tabletop game, but it has now been officially licensed for Dungeons & Dragons, reports Polygon.

This allows players to use the software for 5th Edition D&D, complete with virtual 2D maps and dice rolls. Fantasy Grounds is robust software that brings other user-defined games to life as if everyone was in the same room, and now the same can be done with D&D characters and locations.

As Polygon points out, the first set of digital content went on sale last week. Much like the physical game, you purchase the needed books and the adventure itself to get things underway. The digital versions contain the exact information present in the physical copies--you're not missing out on content just by going virtual. It can get a bit pricey (Fantasy Grounds itself is also $39.99 as a one-time buy), but any players can attest that the physical version adds up, as well. Head over to Polygon for some quotes from the developers on what's next as far as new content.
