Love, Community and Registration in Dragonica this Valentine’s Day

Press Release

For immediate release

Dragonica is the brand new free arcade-style 3D side-scrolling MMORPG. It will be available to download across Europe, this Spring from the www.gpotato.eu gaming portal. As the gPotato Europe team prepares for the game’s launch, we are proud to announce Dragonica’s community features and couple system this Valentine’s Day.

Keeping in touch with your friends in an MMO is important. Dragonica offers a wide variety of ways to help you play, communicate and trade with your friends. And with the English gPotato Europe portal now open, you can register now and be in with a chance of having access to the closed beta which will be available soon.

Dragonica recognises that players often have a friend that they regularly go on adventures with. The Couple System allows two players to make it official and known to other players. After forming a couple, when both players are close together in combat or in travel, they are granted additional skills and a buff to their attacking speed. This is combined with the ability to immediately warp to your partner should you be apart and they be in need. And with a little red heart beside your name, everyone will know you’re taken.

Another recognition of friendship in the game is through Friend Points, which are earned as you play through the game in a party. After a long battle, you can trade your Friend Points with an in-game character and get a lump sum of bonus experience just for fighting with your friends. This is particularly handy if you’re close to levelling up. Parties also allow players to distribute collected loot evenly, or let everyone go free for all after the best items.

Dragonica’s communications system includes a variety of ways to get your message across to other players. The game’s Postal System allows you to send messages to letterboxes scattered throughout Dragonica. This is ideal for getting messages to people to organise events and parties when players are offline. It can also be used as a method for distributing items between players. Send it free or set a charge for the player receiving your item if you want to use the system to trade. Friend lists let you quickly see which of your friends are online and start chatting with them, join their party and get straight into the action.

Trading in Dragonica is quick and easy to do. After a simple click on the Open Market menu, you can open your own shop and put your items on the market for other players to view and purchase. This allows you to earn gold towards other items in the Open Market that you want to buy, as well as offload any loot that your character doesn’t need. If you run into someone on your adventures, you can quickly start a transaction, chat and trade for items you both want to exchange. There are many characters scattered throughout Dragonica who have items that you can trade. Players can also open a bank vault to keep their favourite items safe. These are available in the larger cities in Dragonica.

All these features await players, in the free-to-play arcade-style 3D side-scrolling MMORPG, Dragonica, and is available this Spring. The gPotato Team will also be running a series of in-game community events to welcome players to the game during the beta. As with all gPotato games, you will be able to download and play Dragonica for free, for life! The official European website has lots of additional screenshots, artworks and videos and is available at http://dragonica.gpotato.eu
