Dragon’s Prophet: New MMORPG From SOE, Ride Dragons!

Sony pulled a one-two punch at this year’s SOE-Live with news concerning two new MMO’s, one announcement concerning new developments regarding their next Everquest MMO and the other being an MMO focused on Dragons.

Immediately I know what some of you are thinking, “dragons have been the focus of MMOs for years”. This is wholeheartedly true, we have seen dragons be vilified, turned into pets, mounts, and more throughout the MMO history timeline but we have yet to see an MMO devote so much focus to a singular fantasy species, that is till now.

Dragon’s Prophet isn’t aiming to just be an MMORPG where dragons just happen to exist within. These aren’t background decorations that spruce up the world with danger and diversity. Dragons make up THE core aspect of the MMO. Dragon’s Prophet admittedly oozes a sort of Pokemon world feel to when describing its world as “a world shaped by dragon-kind, more than 300 unique dragons roam the lands. Fight, capture, train and ride them in order to unlock their unique skills and abilities.” Sounds like Pokemon right?

Beyond the obvious dragon focus, Sony touts features such as action-based combat which according to the website will use “a revolutionary auto-targeting system that gives players unprecedented control during the battles. The auto-targeting system improves on traditional MMO combat systems and offers players a wide range of tactical options.” Sounds alot like Sony taking the Tera/Guild Wars 2 combat system and adding media hype but at least seems it won’t be using traditional hotkey combat.

Not much else is known about the MMO right now. The trailer above does little more than provide a glimpse into the ingame art style and second long action sequences. If you’re interested in taming your own Dragon Sony has already begun taking beta signups on the website.

    1. lmao, I don’t think the whole “first” thing will ever die out. xD

      1. Hahahaha. And I thought you were going to say SECOND. xDDDD

  1. Awesome… don’t know what to say else. :D

  2. I am pleasantly surprised. Looking forwards to more info Mmobomb. Keep up the good work~

  3. Looks cool, but of course, most trailers do, now we need to see the actual gameplay, I just hope it is as good as it sounds.

  4. been waiting for something like this

  5. Great…an MMO focused on the species I hate. -rolls eyes-

    1. I’m going to hope your eyes stays at that position for the remaining of your hateful life.

  6. Sounds epic

    But will it be?

  7. *See the annouce* OOOHHH COOOL!!
    *See SOE*

    *facepalm*

  8. Why can’t we have a Guild Wars 2 clone?

    1. Funny you should say that, if you go to this game’s website, the site itself looks a LOT like GW2′s website lol. Just something I saw in my travels :)

  9. from the creators of RoM? so we’re talking about frogster… That means 2 things: long grinding for a p2w game, or a short life like eligium

    1. Frogster merely published Runes of Magic. Runewaker Entertainment is the actual development company, completely separate from Frogster.

  10. holy shit that trailer gave me goosebumps

  11. another great game to be runined by soe’s pay for fun, pay to win model

  12. Ima tame them all

  13. errr NO

    So runewaker created it and SOE will publish it…that means 2 things:

    1. It will be bugged as hell, especially the main quest lines
    2. It will be pay2win and you will end up spending more money than you spent on RoM in years

    i Call this: “Dragons Prophet: Tales of Bugs and Payments”

  14. skyrim clone !!! lololol!!!

    and not even well done! ahahaha , i agree with the guys above .

  15. thx you mmo bomb

  16. Watched trailer? Yes.
    Impressed? No.
    Visited (Dragon’s Prophet) website? Yes.
    Signing up for beta? No.
    Why? Because it’s SOE.

    My Way.™

  17. Epic moment LOL, but your totaly right

  18. Was really excited, and then 0:16 into the trailer, really crushed.
    If it’s anything like RoM, it’ll be entirely pay2win with massive balancing issues.

    …yaaay?

  19. It’s a free game, might as well try it out and see for yourself. Not like you’re wasting money by downloading and checking it out.

  20. “Oh cool I love dragons! This is going to be so… Oh wait… SOE. FUUUUUUUUU~”

  21. SOE? Don’t care, I’m still gonna try this one out.
    Looks impressive at least.

  22. Let’s just hope it’s not another instance based crap like the new fashion MMO’s in the last 2 years.
    What the hell happened to the open world MMO’s?

    1. I rather enjoy a few instance based MMO’s. Monster Hunter Tri would have been lovely on the Wii if the damn system to meet up with people wasn’t so drawn out (took too long to start an instance with a random team, and if someone left in the middle of an instance you were pretty much f***. And if you had a d/c there was no way to reenter. SO LOTS OF FLAWS. Meh first Wii mmo I expected this shit)

      Dragon Nest is a great action mmo that is instance based. So this could work as an instanced game well, but I do understand your lust for a good open world to endlessly explore on your dragon.

  23. finally a dragon game i can be excited about…this game looks epic

  24. This Game looks epic, great dragons (O.O) love it, going to register in europe…oh wait ….coming soon….
    Me:God,why did you gave great ideas to SOE?
    God:To f* your life… ;) !
    Me:FUUUUUUUUUUUU~~~~(Now i Shall Not Paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.!)

  25. This game looks freaking cool, does anyone know if its a one time buy, subscription, or FtP? Can’t wait!

    1. Pay 2 Win xD u get advantages for money (more dragons, more slots in ur gear etc) and u can’t get those without paying =(
