The Island of Vulkania is here to let fans of online game DOFUS really play with fire!

The new game zone was made available on the 5 th July and will be available every summer.

Roubaix, France– 6 th July, 2011– Vulkania, DOFUS’s new game zone, was designed with the summer holidays in mind and is only available during the months of July and August. From the 5 th July onwards, DOFUS players can access Vulkania no matter what level their characters are.

Found just south of Otomai Island, the Archipelago of Vulkania offers a range of different terrains: white, sandy beaches, tropical jungles, smoking craters and sparkling caverns. Even the most audacious characters will find a real challenge amidst the volcanoes, as Vulkania’s native wildlife is peculiar, to say the least. Say hello to new monster species such as the Sauroshell family, as well as a Petsmount– a pet that you can ride– known as a Madreggon. But that’s not all: Vulkania is also home to Grozilla and Grasmera, two terrors who are back to shake the World of Twelve once more!

Vulkania, a new island which includes:

- 165 new game screens to explore

- 40 brand new quests

- 30 new monsters

- 13 new equipment items (3 complete sets)

- 5 craters to discover (adapted to suit all levels)

- 3 new titles to unlock

- 1 new community challenge: the Heart-Breaker

- 1 new emote

- 1 new type of pet

This summer, Ankama is pleased to invite you to Vulkania– where things are already hotting up!
