Atari and Liquid Entertainment are pleased to announce the initial sign-up phase of the closed beta test of our upcoming Dungeons & Dragons real-time strategy title, Dragonshard. Sign-ups for are now available for this fantasy real-time strategy experience at Ataris betatest.net, so put in a request now (see below). The beta start date is coming soon.
Dragonshard is a real-time strategy game based on the exciting new D&D universe, Eberron, a cinematic and war-torn world of action, adventure and intrigue where fantasy meets magical technology. Developed by Liquid Entertainment, Dragonshard incorporates classic role-playing themes, a powerful and dynamic real-time strategy engine all woven together with a rich storyline involving a global conflict for an immensely powerful artifact with the power to change the fate of Eberron itself.
Dragonshard takes place at time when the world of Eberron is in chaos. Three forces are vying for control of a massive dragonshard, known as the Heart of Siberys. The ancient artifact has come to rest in a mystical part of Eberron known as Xendrik; once home to ancient and powerful civilizations; it is now a place of mystery and monsters. Shielded by a circle of high mountains and blanketed by never-ending tempests and blizzards, this region has been shunned for millennia.
Dragonshard will be available in March 2005.
