Paradox Interactive today announced that the current Era in Dreamlords: Resurrection, a Free-to-Play fantasy based Massively Multiplayer Online Real-Time Strategy (MMORTS) game for the PC, will end on May 5th and the next Era will begin the same day. The New Era will give players the ability to start from the beginning of the game, and existing players will keep some of the items that they paid for in the current Era.
The company also announced that it will be discounting Tribute (the in-game currency in Dreamlords: Resurrection) from April 29-May 1, 2011 at Midnight PST. Players can purchase virtual goods that enhance and accelerate the gameplay to help finish the Era’s content, or get a boost in the next Era. There are no fees to download or play the game, which can be found at: www.dreamlords.com
“Unlike persistent MMORTS games, Dreamlords: Resurrection uses a mechanic where the game begins and ends over a certain period of time,” said Tom Söderlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect. “This provides players with the ability to gain fame and glory on the leaderboards forever and offers new opportunities for players to join the game more often.”
Dreamlords: Resurrection is powered by Paradox Connect, a platform that adds community features, achievements and other features that enhance the gameplay experience, replayability and connection to the game.
About Dreamlords: Resurrection
Dreamlords: Resurrection, developed by MMO studio Lockpick Entertainment, 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, Dreamlords 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.
