Aeria Games unveiled its action-packed new MMORPG, Dragon Knights, a PvP-intensive, visually striking, 3D fantasy roleplaying game. Closed beta registration has begun for all players who would heed the call to save the world of Litos.

In Dragon Knights, players will combat the emerging threat of the malevolent dragon Kharvag. Defeated centuries prior by an enigmatic order known as the Dragon Knights, Kharvag has returned to wreak havoc on the world of Litos. It’s up to players to seek out the power and strength of the lost order by establishing a new legion of Dragon Knights willing to stand against their ancient enemy.

While players will adventure through lush and exotic landscapes and delve into perilous dungeons, the game also boasts a strong focus on large-scale PvP combat. Guilds can challenge each other to vast battles with many players. In addition, castle sieges offer a twist on guild warfare, an attacking guild must try to oust defenders from their castle. The winning guild retains ownership of the castle, allowing access to its functions and potentially lucrative tax revenue.

Dragon Knights also incorporates other unique features such as the transformation and election systems. With the transformation system, players can actually take the form of various monsters in the game, altering not just their physical appearance, but also their battle capabilities. The election system allows players to fully participate in the political arena and vote their peers into influential positions such as Cardinal and Emperor, encouraging competition and rivalry beyond the battlefield.

Dragon Knights will require a client download, and like all Aeria Games titles, is free-to-play. Players interested in registering for the closed beta can visit http://dragonknights.aeriagames.com.

    Okay, thats it, iam tired of F2P MMORPG.C’mon, they release a game every day, noticed that i dint say “a NEW game every day”?Its getting annoying, ITS THE FCKING SAME GAME!!!Here is a list of how a mmo is done this day.
    -RPG or FPS?If FPS, make a CS clone with golden weapon for cashers.
    If RPG:
    -Chinese theme or Fantasy theme?
    -Same combat as a bunch of other piles of crap
    -Dont forget the classes:Warrior,Tank,Mage,Healer and a PvP overpowered Rogue
    -Make grinding quests
    -Mobs on the first level must be Wolfs or some mutated animal
    -Put girls with huge boobs in the web saying “Come play with me” and “Brand new MMORPG”
    -How can i forget?Put a crappy crafting items and the same refining system that is used for 90% of the MMO’s
    -Cash shop, nothing to say here…

    DONE, YOUR MMO IS DONE!!!

    Serious, i played every MMO out there, and now i’m only looking for Firefall, and playing Tribes, because every 100 MMO’s, one or two are actual GOOD.

    Have a nice grinding!!

      Election system= Tera online

      • Reck0 on June 14, 2012

        FYI, many games have had election systems waaay before Tera. Like literally, years before it was even thought of.

    Interesting…But no. Just another game that will sink in un-popularity. And I am clone-acusing this game. Because it seems like a mix between Aion and Forsaken world. Aion, because of how the character looks, and at the part in the trailer where they showed a character infront of a big structure, it looked like Forsaken World.

    Plus, they are just empowering the game by mostly a trailer consisting of cinematics, not acual gameplay.

    • Nuro0o on June 12, 2012

      Agree a little with what you say, though it looks quite awesome.
      But only scary thing is ^^ item shop ^^^^^ aeria games always ruins it somehow…..

      • lilfighter on June 12, 2012

        I am lilfighter afterall, nobody will fully agree with me, just a lil. ~See what I did there?^^~

        Anyways, yeah, I agree with item shop, its a nice alternative than just making the game buy2play or pay2play. But this thing is over-used and it`s not that its not good, its just that no game developer seemed to find a damn balance in this, its either not worth buying items, or you really have to buy if you want to have fun…

        And here it is, a new classifing item I just came up with: Cash shop makes game buy2havefun.

        • dsfdfs on June 12, 2012

          It’s an action MMO, I agree with you on the Aion part, but on forsaken world. No. Forsaken world is press this skill a billion times to level up. This is an action MMO.

          Id try this since there arent many great Action MMOs out there besides Vindictus and maybe the exception of Core Blaze.

          • BiriBiri on June 12, 2012

            Action MMO? I watched the video in their site, it doesn’t look like one. The only thing the character is doing is standing in one place and spamming skills. It is just a plain rpg.

        • UrAnIdiot on June 25, 2012
