Drakensang Online now in a box!

Eschborn, 05. October 2011: bitComposer Games has secured the global rights to the physical version of the universally popular Drakensang Online. In collaboration with their partners, Bigpoint, one of the most successful providers of online games in the world, the Eschborn publishers will initially be releasing the popular action online RPG in a high-quality box in Germany, Switzerland and Austria in November 2011; a worldwide release is also being planned.

The Drakensang Online box consists of the client and exclusive, valuable items that will give the purchasers a significant advantage, with an easier entry into the game and individual upgrades and improvements.

Drakensang Online is a browser-based, action-packed online RPG with an exciting plot and a world full of fantastic adventure. Drakensang Online combines the best elements from action RPGs and MMORPGs. The breathtaking dynamic battles provide more frenetic and intense action than the classic MMORPGs. Unlike pure action RPGs, Drakensang Online also places great emphasis on character development and cooperative gameplay between players, and offers RPG gamers a complex, shared game experience and thrilling duels.

Drakensang Online enables each player to have a unique gameplay experience: the game dynamic can be adjusted to suit the game style of individual players. The different character classes and the skill system that can be freely defined guarantee many hours of exhilarating and varied gameplay.

Drakensang Online is suitable for novices and RPG pros alike, as it combines the complexity of a PC RPG with the ease of an intuitive control system.
