DOFUS is a Tactical MMORPG which means players evolve in a real time universe, but when they fight against monsters or against other players, action is turn-based (with specific number of actions each turn). Thus, fights are breathtaking and each move is strategic.
DOFUS has gathered 10 million players, including 1.5 million subscribers since its release. Its principal appeal lies in its manga-inspired graphics and gripping tactical gameplay which have seduced players of all ages and backgrounds.
Ever since its release in September 2004, the number of players has steadily increased both in France and around the world: 30% of the players are non French-speakers. Today DOFUS is played in 150 countries and will soon be available in 10 different languages.
The English-language international version, launched in 2005, has attracted thousands of players from Spain, the UK, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Brazil and the US. As DOFUS had such great success, German and Spanish versions of the game were released in 2007. Italian, Dutch and Portuguese versions of the game are now also available… and there are more to come!
ANKAMA is also developing a new online game Wakfu, which is the sequel to the DOFUS saga and takes place 1,000 years later. Wakfu is currently in Beta test and both the player communities and the gaming press are looking forward to its release!
