Bigpoint announced today that over one million players have registered on Drakensang Online since the official launch of the Open Beta on August 8, 2011. Moreover, with the first big update launched as well as many more to come, such as the community’s highly anticipated PvP features, Bigpoint Berlin is keeping players on their toes with new adventures and challenges in the epic fantasy world of Drakensang Online.
Philip Reisberger, Chief Games Officer at Bigpoint said:
“Drakensang Online helped us prove, only after just a few short weeks, that it’s possible to launch browser games with the same level of quality as traditional PC or console games. Action RPG fans looking for an outstanding gaming adventure should definitely get in on this game now and experience the free-to-play Drakensang Online for themselves!”
Since the launch of the first big update just a few short weeks ago, Drakensang Online players have had the chance to delve into “Teganswall” and discover not only many new quests and new items but also a completely new game region. The development team also plans on expanding the game with other PvP features, including a guild system, arena battles, statistics, buddy lists and a PVP-only server.
Bernd Beyreuther, Head of Development of Bigpoint Berlin said:
“Our community keeps us supplied with a continual pool of ideas to further improve Drakensang Online. We already have a plethora of new content updates planned – and Drakensang Online is just in its infancy. As a developer, it’s a great feeling to be able to develop the game world together with the game fans themselves.”
Drakensang Online’s free-to-play and browser-based Open Beta is available to play on the official website http://www.drakensang-online.com/ in a variety of different languages such as German, English, French not to mention Spanish, Italian and Polish.
