SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Nov. 14, 2012 – Like a dormant dragon erupting to life, DK Online has been unleashed by Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games. The fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) has entered closed beta testing, to the delight of eager fans signed up for the game.

DK Online throws players into the medieval world of Litos to combat the reemergence of the malevolent ancient dragon, Kharvag. The dread dragon was once defeated by legendary heroes known as the Dragon Knights. Players are tasked with reestablishing this order and putting an end to the terror and chaos being sown through the world by Kharvag and his minions.

Players can also engage in the heavy player vs. player (PvP) component of DK Online. Each class, be it Warrior, Paladin, Sorceress, or Shadowmage, plays distinctively and provides unique benefits to groups participating in large-scale PvP modes. A trailer for one such mode, Castle Siege, has been released to commemorate the launch of closed beta. Castle Siege pits several guilds against each other in a winner-take-all battle over castle ownership. The prevailing guild reaps the rewards of taxes levied on all vendors and monster kills in the surrounding area.

Aeria Games is running an avalanche of special events throughout the closed beta period. Along with rewards for the first players to reach certain level milestones, there will be daily events held by game masters and exciting battle events to foster combat with specially spawned monsters as well as other players.

DK Online is free to download, and like all Aeria Games titles, is free-to-play. Players can download the client and play beta right now at Fans are also encouraged to check out the Facebook page for many events, giveaways, and updates.
