Reverie World Studios announced today another epic feature addition to Dawn of Fantasy – Town Siege PvP battles. Players will now be able to take on other player strongholds for the first time, engaging in epic siege warfare with hundreds of units on the battlefield in a fast-paced high-stakes environment. From what we’ve gathered, this new patch will be made available during this Holiday season.
Dawn of Fantasy brings the best in siege combat to the MMO and RTS genres. Immerse yourself in the dynamic online world of Mythador and roam the world with trade convoys, scouts, and massive armies. Recruit fire-breathing dragons and dwarven technology for a truly enviable force. Set up army camps anywhere in the game world, ravage local NPC villages and citadels, and challenge nearby player armies to guard your territory. And, for the first time ever, take the war to the enemy by attacking their homeland.
At the enemy player’s homeland, attacking armies must fight their way through multiple layers of walls with the brute force of ogres, walking woods, and heavy siege, defend their troops against fiery arrows, great trebuchets, and man-eating plants, and battle hundreds of enemy units before coming face to face with the town’s commander to reign supreme.
In addition, the Siege Warfare patch includes an expansion to unit development. A new RPG-style levelling system allows you to customize your soldiers in any way you desire. This improved system will increase the maximum level cap from 10 to 20. After levelling up a battalion or hero on the battlefield, players will now be awarded with skill points that can be spent on any of 8-10 unique stats, depending on the unit. Together, these new levels and skills will add a new level of RPG-style micromanagement to Dawn of Fantasy’s mechanics.
Stay tuned for Dawn of Fantasy next additions – brand new pathfinding and unit combat behavior systems, complex alliances, and six-player PvP matches. Reverie has also begun work on a number of community events and promotions planned for the next two months. Here’s to the fun holidays ahead!
