Bernd Beyreuther, Head of Development Bigpoint Berlin, revealed the company’s plans in his keynote speech on “Chances and opportunities of Drakensang Online – an open look into game design”. June’s international release will be offered in five different languages including German, English, French, Spanish and Italian. Further languages will join soon, resulting in nearly 30 different languages by the year’s end.

With visually stunning 3D graphics, an action-packed world, an enthralling story and sophisticated gameplay, Drakensang Online is not only reinventing the Drakensang saga but also thrilling MMO gamers and fantasy fans alike with its innovative gaming model: A free-to-play online game that can be played directly in your browser without having to install a client in advance. Selected players have already had the pleasure of testing the limited-time Closed Beta and were given the task of smoothing out all the bugs to get the game ready for the official release.

“Players can look forward to the Open Beta release in June!” says Philip Reisberger, Chief Games Officer at Bigpoint. “Thanks to positive community feedback about the Closed Beta as well as an impressive record of registrations, we’re already confident that the launch of Drakensang Online will be an all-time success – and now directly in your browser! Our Berlin team has done a great job and we can’t wait to open the gates to Drakensang Online and let all the players into its whimsical world.”
