Dragon Empires’ Mighty 'Empire Dragons' - Screens

by Rainier on April 30, 2002 @ 12:07 p.m. PDT

The first guardians of Dragon Empire's world unveiled. Wrapped in mystery and mythology, the lands of Dragon Empires, Codemasters’ forthcoming epic fantasy MMORPG, are protected by grand empire dragons.
Dragon Empires’ development team is currently breathing life into these magnificent beasts, one for each of the land’s five empires. Revealed today are the first images of two empire dragons.

Says Ted Carron, the producer of Dragon Empires:

“The dragons are proving a really exciting talking point within the growing community. The empire dragons will be fantastical beasts; hybrids of traditional dragons and creatures that stem from the mythology of their particular empire; these first ones taking the form of a bird dragon and a Mandrill dragon.”

In a world developed with the help of leading author Piers Anthony, dragons form much of the heritage. Long before the time when the game is set, the world descended into chaos only to survive thanks to these great dragons. In the game, they are a guarding force across the five empires and players may discover more about the empire dragons’ origins through their adventures.

Dragon Empires will receive a stunning unveiling at E3, the interactive entertainment expo running in Los Angeles from May 22nd to the 24th, at Codemasters’ booth (#1168, South Hall).

The game’s Beta Test programme is scheduled to begin this summer and Codemasters is eager to sign up further Beta Testers. To be one of first to sample life in the game world and help shape Dragon Empires, gamers can sign up for the Beta Test

The English language version of Dragon Empires is scheduled to be available this autumn for PC gamers. The game will be launched as a boxed product with players subscribing on a monthly basis to play.

The game’s web site, including its forum, IRC chat and Beta Test programme, are located here


Dragon Empires promises to be a groundbreaking MMORPG (*Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). The world will be filled with embattled clans, each striving to prove their superiority in head-to-head group combat, as they aim to rule magnificent cities and, ultimately, empires.

Dragon Empires is set in an age of sorcery, where magic is plentiful and the lives of humans and dragons intertwined. The world is made up of 100 lands spread over five empires, and is a world where player-to-player combat is always possible but its strongholds are guarded and policed by fiercely protective dragons.
