Paradox Interactive unveils Dreamlords Resurrection

NEW YORK– September 2, 2010– Paradox Interactive are proud to officially reveal that Dreamlords Resurrection, a Free-to-Play fantasy based Massively Multiplayer Online Real-Time Strategy game for the PC, is to be the first title released under the newly formed Paradox Connect brand.

Developed by Lockpick Entertainment and announced during the Paradox Interactive press conference at Gamescom 2010, Dreamlords Resurrection is a unique mix of two genres– the Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and the Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) - where the player takes on the role of a Dreamlord. Through a combination of both long term strategic planning as well as intense real-time battles, the Dreamlord must inspire and unite a small group of followers into a battle-ready army ready to conquer land, defend the populace against the Nightmares that roam the world, and band together with other newly awakened Dreamlords.

The inclusion of Cooperative Player-vs-Environment (PvE) play, allows for even greater intensity as players team up with a friend to launch an assault on the nightmares that haunt your people or attempt to slay one of the world bosses.

David Rosen, Chairman and Founder of Lockpick, commented“we’re excited to sign with Paradox Interactive. They have a long track record of successfully publishing strategy game titles and we feel confident that we have found our home for Dreamlords Resurrection, the latest sequel in the Dreamlords series.”

"Publishing Dreamlords: Resurrection not only gives Paradox Interactive the opportunity to release an MMO title with a perfect fit for our audience, but also to work closely with an experienced team in online gaming”, said Tom Söderlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect.
