Dragon (Webp)age: Drakensang Online

By Jim Rossignol on December 1st, 2010 at 10:24 am.


This is interesting. Bigpoint send word that the moderately popular German RPG Drakensang will be reappearing as free-to-play online RPG. Apparently it’s going to feature top end 3D graphics in a browser, too. Bigpoint tell us that “The in-house developed Nebula engine – which was used in the development of the PC versions of Drakensang – makes it possible to play the game in a browser without players needing to install any software onto their computer.” The site isn’t fully up yet, just this German-language email registration page.

I’ve posted the brief teaser trailer below, and it’s got a bit of in-game footage in there. Not looking bad at all, although it’s set more at a Diablo sort of angle than the last Drakensang game. Go take a look.

    I can only say that nothing encapsulates the spirit of German role-playing games better than a dual-wielding dude in full armor throwing massive fireballs down empty halls.

    The only thing this has to do with the other Drakensang games is the name.

    I think it looks a lot like Torchlight. To bad its not really Drakensang online like the pc game, I liked that one.

    The first two Drakensang games were quite good if a little generic in places but showed promise – a very sad thing that the original studio shut down and these idiots got their mits on it now.

      These ‘idiots’ are actually the same people who developed the original Drakensang. Radonlabs got bought by Bigpoint at the last moment and are now Bigpoint Berlin. So most of the people who work on the action rpg also worked on the party rpgs.

      I f-ing hate gamers who think that developers are as narrow minded as themselves. Just because you thinkt that Diablo clones are inferior to party rpgs (an argument could be made that both genres contain almost no real gameplay are just wank fodder for people who never made it out of puberty) doesn’t mean that the people who actually create these games think the same way.

      Now I don’t know if everybody who works on the game is happy about the new direction, but I’m guessing that quite a few of them enjoy the chance to (a) work on their own IP, without having to make compromises in order to satisfy the DSA IP holder and (b) do something a little bit different after having worked on fucking Baldur’s Gate clones for five years. Even if that ‘something different’ turns out to be a Diablo clone.

      Also the studio didn’t really profit from working on complex party rpgs, otherwise they wouldn’t have become broke and bought out by bigpoint. A browser based, micro transaction fueled, free to play action rpg might at least get some money into their pockets.

      Better check some facts the next time you insult somebody on the internet.

    What the hell? The released a prequel to Drakensang? Why can’t i buy this in the UK? How did you people get ahold of it?! I’m looking at the website they put up for it (seeing there’s even an expansion) but it doesn’t exist – in fact the game page only links to sales of Drakensang itself and not the prequel…..

    This game is awesome!
