505 Games has announced the launch of their latest MMO RTS, Dawn of Fantasy. It hit store shelves this weekend. The game features strategic elements with players facing opposing armies, gaining territory, and participate in story-driven quests.
The MMO comes in with player interaction in forged alliances, trading, and cooperative play in both player vs. player and vs. environment (PvP or PvE) experiences.
The choice of three available races (Elves, Orcs, Men) and their accompanying weaknesses and strong points add variety and the possibility of continual play. The game blends real time strategy (RTS) with some RPG elements in a large, interactive, and persistent MMO environment.
Dawn of Fantasy has been one of the most anticipated RTS offerings in some time. The publisher says:
“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing Dawn of Fantasy to an eager market of MMO and RTS fans,” said Ralph Pitt-Stanley, General Manager UK & Export for 505 Games. “The sheer level of depth, detail and destruction in the game – along with copious amounts of online functionality – should ensure players are bringing the fantasy fight to the realm of Mythador for many, many months to come.”
