R2GAMES TO BEGIN ALPHA TESTING FOR DRAGON PALS, A MULTI-FACETED, ADVENTURE BASED MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE ROLE-PLAYING GAME

Dragon Pals combines multiple game genres and various manners of gameplay to create a uniquely styled MMORPG.

  

Reality Squared Games (R2Games) will begin running an alpha test on 12:00AM EDT on April 15th for Dragon Pals. The title is a multi-faceted, adventure based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). To participate in the alpha, players may visit  http://dragon.r2games.com/.

Dragon Pals combines multiple game genres and various manners of gameplay to create a uniquely styled MMORPG. Players journey through a vibrant world full of stirring quests, wicked monsters, and intriguing events. It features a charming graphic style as well as straight forward gameplay which increases in complexity the further the player continues in game. Dragon Pals is completely browser based, requires no download, and is free to play. The game is being published by R2Games, and was developed by eyugan.

The story begins in a world which was once guarded by dragons. However, as evil took over the land, the dragons were forced to seal themselves away to keep their powers from being used against them. It’s up to the player to reawaken the dragons and bring peace to the world once again.

The game features three classes, each with unique skills and abilities. Warriors are built to withstand great damage, while wielding powerful attacks. Mages are masters of the elements, and use magic to outwit their foes. Archers are tactical warriors and prefer to annihilate their enemies from afar

Dragon Pals has a number of popular features players will be able to relate with, as well as several new mechanics.

An example of the latter is the Cage Match.  The system will randomly pit players who have joined the event against each other with the overall victors receiving specialized in-game titles.

The game also features a highly customizable Dragon Pet system in which players may train, raise, and customize their dragons for a devastatingly powerful result.

Other elements include a Farm, used to grow crops that yield EXP and Amethyst; a tower ascension system which allows players to test their strength and gain valuable rewards; and a multitude of daily events which will keep players entertained for hours on end.

R2Games’ platform provides a place for gamers to come and play the best free-to-play browser games. Dragon Pals has been highly successful in China, and already has amassed nearly 5 Million players. The English language alpha launches on 12:00AM EDT on April 15th, at which point players can sign up at  http://dragon.r2games.com.
