NIKITA ONLINE Starts the Open Beta Test for Russian Dragona Online

7 th of May 2013, Moscow. — NIKITA ONLINE makes an announcement on the beginning of the open beta test for Russian Dragona Online: the game is now available for the millions of Russian-speaking users.   

NIKITA ONLINE starts the open beta test for a new MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) Dragona Online ( http://dragona.gamexp.ru/). The title well-recognized in the USA, Canada, Japan, Taiwan and other countries is now available for gamers from Russia, CIS and the Baltic states.    

Dragona Online meets the strictest demands of the gamers who put graphics first. Highly detailed models and surroundings, smooth animation and eclectic “fantasy/sci-fi” design — these are the visual perks making Dragona Online a really impressive game. Another Dragona’s strong point is its unique Transformation system allowing a player to turn his or her character into a powerful creature with new abilities and a dragon-like appearance. Dragona Online’s developers paid special attention to the game’s plot. A whirlwind of unexpected happenings will set a player spinning between various questlines. The story is fictional but still has many things in common with Medieval European history.       

“In March we carried out an annual survey of our audience. Its results unequivocally say that users’ preferences have become more diversified,” states NIKITA ONLINE’s Corporate Communications Director Sergey Kolesov . “Fantasy-style RPG is still the most popular genre but we can’t ignore a growing demand for new kinds of gaming experience. Dragona Online offers a creative mixture of traditional elements and innovations. That is why the game can be of great interest for both hardcore MMORPG vets and those who are looking for something fresh and different.”     

Dragona Online is now available on the GameXP entertainment web-portal, where millions of users can delve into the game by both reading detailed descriptions and downloading the client ( http://www.gamexp.ru/project.php?id=64).
