AERIA GAMES LAUNCHES GROUND-BREAKING DRAGON CRUSADE

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – June 26, 2012 – Let clashing steel, marching armies, and clanking construction fill your browser with Dragon Crusade from Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games. Today’s launch of the massively multiplayer real-time strategy game (MMORTS) offers players a rich and tactical kingdom-building experience with no download required.

Dragon Crusade delivers an abundance of depth, providing a high level of detail and amazing customization options. The title features six playable races, all with unique buildings, troops, and abilities, ensuring that no two battles will be the same. In addition to developing fledgling towns into imposing empires, players will also be challenged by vital quests, perilous instances, and large-scale warfare against other players.

Leading the hundreds of soldiers comprising a player’s army, superior hero units will be the keys to victory. Further adding to the game’s complexity, heroes are fully customizable with attribute skill points, giving players the flexibility to build the ultimate melee combatant, the most lethal mage, or anything in between.  Mounts and pets are available to heroes as well, adding even more ways to boost hero attributes while also providing them with a companion.

Forming alliances in Dragon Crusade is also a crucial tool for survival in a hostile and continually evolving landscape. Alliances benefit their members with exclusive strategic buildings like forts, warehouses, and tech centers. Those who thirst for even more PvP competition can take their heroes to the gladiatorial arena and challenge other players’ heroes for glory and rich rewards!

Dragon Crusade is entirely browser-based and does not require a download, and like all Aeria Games titles, it is free-to-play. Players can jump into the game right now at http://dragoncrusade.aeriagames.com.
