San Diego, U.S.A. — On the eve of October 19, at its annual fan event, SOE Live, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE), announced a new licensing and publishing partnership with Runewaker Entertainment to bring the fantasy massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Dragon’s Prophet to North America. Developed by Runewaker Entertainment, Dragon’s Prophet transports players to the dragon-filled, beautiful world of Auratia, where they can capture, train and ride dragons.
“As one of the most imaginative and high-quality MMOs in development, Dragon’s Prophet is an incredible addition to our portfolio. It is an exceptional reflection of our mission to develop and support next generation MMOs,” said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment. “Dragons are some of the most legendary, fearsome and majestic creatures. With thousands of years of story and more dragons in the game than any other MMO, we’re excited to unleash this IP so people can play and interact with dragons like never before.”
Dragon’s Prophet features an action-based combat system that gives players more realistic battle action gameplay. Set in a realm where dragons roam the land, sea and air, the game lets players align and battle with a variety of dragons as they work to restore order to the land from the evil Black Dragon that has escaped his eternal prison, unleashed his fire and is more dangerous than ever.
“As evidenced at this week’s SOE Live event, SOE has a close, transparent relationship with its players. We wanted to create a similar high quality, meaningful experience for the North American players of Dragon’s Prophet,” said John Tang, CEO, Runewaker Entertainment. “SOE is a leader in the online gaming space and know that Dragon’s Prophet will benefit from SOE’s experience in delivering some of the most iconic, innovative online worlds in the industry.”
Key features for Dragon’s Prophet include:
Headquartered in Taiwan, Runewaker Entertainment is best known for developing the successful free-to-play MMO role-playing game (MMORPG) Runes of Magic. Through the partnership, SOE will publish and digitally distribute Dragon’s Prophet to North American PC gamers as a Free To Play. Upon launch, players will be able to download and play the game for free from SOE or any of its digital partners.
