Ankama introduces DOFUS 2.0

The code of DOFUS has been completely rewritten in Action Script 3 so now the leading Flash MMO will prove even faster and more responsive, while over 2,000 animations and 10,000 maps are being entirely redrawn.

With this complete revision, the game will be much more fluid, attractive and fun while keeping the same minimum system requirements, gameplay and features that have made it a worldwide success through the years.

Communication with the servers has been revised and optimised by the development team to deliver better performance and to allow future expansions to evolve more freely.

"This update reflects the experience accumulated by Ankama Games during all those years of programming and continually improving DOFUS" says Anthony Roux, Creative Director and co-founder of Ankama.

"DOFUS 2.0 is dedicated to our players, whose continued support has driven us to keep the game evolving and challenging throughout the years." says Cedric Gerard, International Marketing Manager.

Ankama is proud to give DOFUS gamers the opportunity to enhance their gaming experience for free, by allowing DOFUS 2.0 to compete with the best looking products available on the online gaming market, while retaining the current minimum hardware requirements.
