Dragon’s Prophet launches globally on September 18th
Berlin & Las Vegas, 2nd of August 2013: Infernum Productions AG and Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announced last night at the annual SOE Live fan event that the F2P MMORPG Dragon’s Prophet will launch in Europe and North America on September 18th 2013. The fantasy MMORPG from the developers of Runes of Magic combines all aspects of a modern role-playing game and evolutionises the genre. With more than 300 unique dragons, players can experience adrenaline fuelled moments in capturing legendary dragons, and then customise the dragons to how they see fit. Currently, Dragon’s Prophet is in Open Beta and already enchants hundreds of thousands of players. During the current Open Beta phase, the regular improvements, updates and adjustments are illuminating the game in new splendour. When the game launches, players can attend massive, cross-server PvP battles with siege weapons thanks to the introduction of the frontier system.
“Thanks to the help of thousands of passionate beta testers and the tireless efforts of everyone involved, we are now close to the next milestone in Dragon’s Prophet”, says Andreas Weidenhaupt, CEO at Infernum Productions. “Almost three months after the open beta started, we have already made huge progress! After we revisited the existing gameplay systems on a huge scale and delivered new content to Dragon’s Prophet, we will now continuously improve the performance, address balancing issues and rework all zones as well as the 30 dungeons we already released. When the game launches, we will deliver an additional zone as well as the long-awaited frontier system with its epic cross-server PvP battles. Gaming has never been this diverse and thrilling – and you’re experiencing it on the back of a mighty dragon!”
“Dragon’s Prophet has brought together what every fantasy-MMO gamer looks for in a new game: intense, action-based combat, a unique and compelling end-game siege system, and of course, hundreds of dragon types to interact, befriend and ultimately customize your play style with,” said John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment. “Open Beta has provided us with valuable player feedback.

Berlin, the 18th of April 2013: Infernum, the Berlin-based publisher of Dragon’s Prophet in Europe, teases the housing system in a new video, released today. The sandbox aspect of Dragon’s Prophet will give the community the opportunity to build their own villages upon floating islands that fill the skies, where they can build and customize their very own homes.
The Auratian Sky Archipelago will not only be a stage for epic cross-server PvP battles, but will also serve as an important haven for players to rest their weary bodies after long and intense guild conflicts.
Auratians will have the opportunity to claim their plot of land upon one of the many floating islands where they can begin constructing their home. Guilds might want to make sure their members secure neighbouring plots to create guild villages or towns. The number of plots to rent will directly depend on the size of the island, most of them sheltering a couple of villages and a massive castle which will play an important part in guild battles.
From a simple ground-level shed to a magnificent mansion, residents can build, customize and furnish their house however they want. Furniture can be crafted by specialists or purchased from merchants in the town tavern or from skilled woodcrafters. At the start of the Open Beta more than 200 objects are available.
However, players should be careful not to forget to pay rent: they could end up losing their land and being forced to search for another neighborhood. But they shouldn’t worry too much: players can relocate to another plot of land with their house and furniture.
Dragon’s Prophet’s Housing System will also give residents the chance to showcase their proudest achievements in the world of Auratia. After defeating fearsome boss monsters, they can collect a part of their foes’ body, such as the head, and use it to create a fearsome trophy to display in their home.
The housing system has been designed so that residents can also see how their neighbors’ homes are decorated, ensuring stiff competition among Auratia’s most passionate home decorators. Home owners can also grant friends with permissions to access their house and certain inventory, rearrange the furniture and use the facilities at will.
Many more features await players of Dragon’s Prophet. Those interested in the game can register on the website for a chance to join the Closed Beta, or purchase a Founders pack to secure access today and obtain a host of other in-game bonuses.
Second phase of the Dragon’s Prophet Closed Beta and RENA engine info released
Berlin, 11 April 2013: Infernum is glad to announce the second phase of the Closed Beta testing for Dragon’s Prophet will begin tomorrow on the 12th of April. The doors of Auratia will open for all members of the Founders’ Club as soon as the update goes live. A website designed specifically for the European Closed Beta experience can now be found at:https://www.dragonspropheteurope.com/community/beta-status
This critical next step in Dragon’s Prophet’s ongoing development will see a client update with five expansive areas and their instances awaiting the growing Closed Beta community.
Impressive landscapes inhabited by new dragonsare awaiting testers in the latest update.
New functionality and game mechanics will also arrive tomorrow, which will be placed under heavy scrutiny by veteran MMO players who’ve been working closely alongside Infernum’s QA department to help bring Dragon’s Prophet closer to release. Social Rewards will grant bonuses for players who want to collaborate together, Achievements System have arrived and the Crafting System has undergone a complete revamp.
During the first phase of Closed Beta, RENA, Runewaker’s proprietary game engine has raised questions from testers who’ve been wondering how the technology works. The graphics engine utilises a combination of normal and gloss mapping coupled with a deferred rendering technology, ensuring the game’s environment remains as immersive and realistic as possible with optimal performance. Shading and lighting are also part of the experience, thanks to the use of motion blur, advanced anti-aliasing technologies (such as FXAA and TAA) and full-screen horizon-based ambient occlusion. Dragon’s Prophet utilises the DirectX 10 technology for performance reasons, and will integrate the strongest aspects of DirectX 11 as soon as it is released.
The plot thickens, the development journey continues!
