2024 is looking like a stellar year for Dungeons & Dragons, with tons of new books, merch, novels, and more coming soon. Here’s everything coming up in D&D for 2024.

2024 marks the 50th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons. This means it’s a key time for the TTRPG to bring out some awesome new books, merch, minis, and more.

On top of this, a major rules revision for D&D is scheduled to arrive, merging all the best bits of previous editions into one accessible rulebook, so anyone can enjoy what it has to offer.

However, keeping track of everything that’s coming out for D&D this year can be pretty tricky and relatively overwhelming. So, with that in mind, here’s everything releasing for Dungeons & Dragons in 2024.

D&D books coming in 2024

Dungeons & Dragons Descent into the Lost Caverns of TsojcanthWizards of The Coast

Currently, we know of six new books coming in 2024, two of which are updated core rulebooks. The third updated book, the Monster Manual, will not be released this year, instead launching on February 18, 2025.

Beyond those, there are three adventures announced for this year, one of which is an adventure centered on the iconic villain Vecna for characters levels 10-20. There’s also an anthology of classic D&D adventures for characters levels 1-13.

An updated version Descent into the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, a 1982 adventure written by D&D creator Gary Gygax, was announced at PAX Unplugged last year to be released in 2024. This may be part of the Quests from the Infinite Staircase anthology, though nothing has been confirmed yet.

Finally, there is a book on the history of Dungeons & Dragons releasing this summer, which will provide insight into the game’s creation and early years.
