This spring Atari will release the latest D&D based video game: Daggerdale. According to the website:

Travel to the Forgotten Realms, where the adventure begins in the Dalelands, nestled in the remote Desertsmouth Mountains. From the sulfuric catacombs of the mines of Tethyamar, to the dizzying heights of the Tower of the Void, Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale combines the depth of Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition with intuitive, action packed combat that will satisfy the most seasoned of adventurers.

The game is set to be released this spring, Q2 (expected 24 May). According to Wizards’ website, the game will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Playstation Network, and Windows PC.
