'Drakensang Online' Launches Open Beta

by Rainier on Aug. 8, 2011 @ 11:55 a.m. PDT

Drakensang Online is a free-to-play online game where the game's epic fantasy story will guide players through the world of Drakensang Online, prompting them to unite with thousands of other players and repel the evil forces amassing against them.

Centuries ago, a mighty dragon engulfed the world in flames which plunged the world into a state of chaos and nearly caused the downfall of mankind. Brave heroes inspired the public to join forces and banish the dragon to the fiery depths from where it came.  However, after the death of these valiant warriors, the empire eventually crumbled. Memories faded, vigilance waned and the evil became nothing more than a distant legend.

A century of peace and prosperity passed, and unsettling rumors started to spread like wildfire – war has broken out in the north and Prince Aldred has vanished without a trace. The land is shrouded in terror and a long-forgotten cult has reemerged. The increasing turmoil, an omen of the dragon’s revengeful return, is a summons to the ancient order of dragon warriors and mages to take up arms once again. The time has come for them to confront the evil which was banished into dark realms centuries ago. As the battle to end all battles draws near, new warriors are born and the bravest will join forces to fight for freedom and survival: A new age has begun – an age of heroes!

Drakensang Online’s high-quality graphics and intricate details are sure to captivate viewers like no other browser-based game has done before, strengthening the online game’s renowned reputation. The in-house developed Nebula engine – which was used in the development of the PC versions of Drakensang – makes it possible to play the game in a browser without players needing to install any software onto their computer.  The superior graphics lets players enjoy impressive settings such as picturesque medieval cities, lush forests and gloomy crypts.

With the long-awaited launch of the Open Beta, fans of action RPGs will finally be able to explore the epic world of Drakensang Online, the free-to-play online browser game. The game invites players to take up arms as fearless Dragonknight freedom fighters or wise and magical Spellweavers to wage a brutal war against the terrifying dragons and savage monsters of the Anderworld. The international release of the game will be offered in 19 different languages including German, English, French, Spanish and Italian.

“Drakensang’s going online!” rejoiced Bernd Beyreuther, Head of Development at Bigpoint Berlin “The launch of this game allows us to realize a long-held ambition of developing a fully immersive action RPG game that can be enjoyed by all players from the first moment of playing, and is brought alive by its large community. We have developed a rich story within the game and will be constantly tailoring and expanding the game based on user demands.”

In addition to its two selectable character classes, Drakensang Online has been wowing fans in Closed Beta with a variety of different character skills, exciting and challenging quests, an impressive armory of weapons and magic, and over 100 hours of gaming content.

“Exactly one year ago we took over Radon Labs, one of Germany’s most prestigious developer teams and the creators of the original Drakensang PC games, and expanded our Bigpoint Berlin operations,” says Heiko Hubertz, Co-CEO of Bigpoint. “The fact that we’re releasing Drakensang Online’s Open Beta today exceeds all expectations we had for the game. The team has accomplished amazing work and Drakensang Online is not only an action-packed gaming experience but also a technical achievement which every gamer should test out, especially since it’s free to play online in your browser.”

The start of the Open Beta is just the beginning for Drakensang Online: The team at Bigpoint Berlin is currently working on the first updates and new content in order to expand the world of Drakensang Online on a weekly basis.
