For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland, 01st of October– Dragonica is the free arcade-style 3D side-scrolling MMORPG developed by Barunson Interactive and published by Gala Networks Europe. This October will see the introduction of the "Tales of the Damned" expansion for European versions of Dragonica, and we are proud to announce information on the eagerly anticipated Emporia Tournament system, available to players who download the game from http://dragonica.gpotato.eu.

Players who are members of any of the active Guilds of Dragonica are in for a treat this October. The Emporia Tournament is a Guild v Guild battleground that gives opposing teams the ability to attack an Emporia, with the aim of taking out their opponents cores, scattered throughout the brand new Emporia maps. Up to fifty players will be able to participate in frantic side-scrolling team-based action.

The Emporia Tournament system will work to a timetable that will be announced on the official EuropeanDragonica website at http://dragonica.gpotato.eu and will offer Guilds a regular series of events that they can spend their Guild experience to enter. Winning teams will get a variety of in-game prizes, as well as develop their Guild's prestige and be in with a chance of gaining large amounts of experience for their Guild. This experience will unlock new Guild skills that Guild members can use during their adventures throughout Dragotaka.

The Emporia Tournament is just one of many new features being introduced by the "Tales of the Damned" expansion to European versions of Dragonica. In addition to this new feature, controller support, pets, an increase in the level cap to 65, many brand new field maps, mission maps, dungeons, bosses and a revised mission scoring system will be introduced. As with all gPotato.eu games, this and future updates are all available completely free of charge, and will be delivered by a patch (or fornew players a new and updated client) during October.
