Dawn of Fantasy is a 3D MMORTS/RPG under development at Reverie World Studios. Set in Medieval times, the game immerses players in an intense story of a battle for supremacy in the magical realm of Mythador that include Dragons, Elves and Orcs.

Set in the massively multiplayer fantasy world of Mythador which supports its own living economic, trading, development and diplomacy systems, players will be given the opportunity to leave their mark on the land’s already war torn history when Dawn of Fantasy is launched.

Offering a fresh perspective on the fantasy RTS genre, Dawn of Fantasy will deliver a persistent world war  experience like none before.Thousands of Players living, building, exploring and fighting together to crush with AI controlled strongholds and empires,  in a rich tapestry of story-driven encounters that help to build upon the already weighty single player campaign experience. In a world that continues to trade and evolve even after logging off, Players will also be able to test their armies’ constitution in matched head-to-head, multiplayerencounters on their road to becoming the biggest city-state in Mythador.

Each of the three different races available to players – elves, men and orcs – offer a radically different playing style based on a carefully balanced system of strengths and weaknesses. With an in-game narrative driven by a dramatic historical background, Dawn of Fantasy will combine rich storytelling with compelling gameplay to provide a strategy experience to appeal to MMO and RTS fans alike.

Reverie World Studios and 505 Games are extending an invitation to all MMO-RTS fans to register now for the game’s Open Beta, in which players can build up a mighty stronghold, engage in three quest-based campaigns as Elves, Orcs, or Men, and fight for supremacy in any of the four game modes. Players can begin their adventures in the world of Mythador by signing up here.

Designed with low system requirements in mind, the Dawn of Fantasy engine will nonetheless render armies of thousands of units and hundreds of terrain objects on screen for epic battle encounters. Once the dust settles on the in game campaigns, players can try exploring their creative side by using the powerful map editor to design the fantasy encounters of their dreams.
