Acquires Dreamlords: The Reawakening
Aeria Games acquired its first real-time strategy
game for North American release, Dreamlords: The Reawakening, by Swedish
developers, Lockpick Entertainment.
Dreamlords extends Aeria’s portfolio of massively
multiplayer online (MMO) games by introducing strategic gameplay that is
familiar to Age of Empires, Starcraft and Settlers of Catan players. Unique to
Dreamlords, the game universe is always running — even when players are sleeping
or at school or work. Players are encouraged to define their orders in advance
to move toward their strategic directions every minute of the day. They may
perform game operations from any location with a basic browser and Internet
connection, and they can battle in a 3D-immersive world after downloading the
free PC game.
The exclusive North American release of
Dreamlords: The Reawakening through Aeria Games will be free to play with no
upfront or monthly costs. Special in-game items and decorative equipment will be
available in the game’s “Item Mall” for optional purchase using Aeria Points —
the universal currency on the Aeria Games portal.
“For a long time, gamers have been looking for a
fun MMORTS game to play, and Dreamlords answers that demand,” said Spencer Chi,
producer at Aeria Games.
“We’re impressed with what (Aeria Games) has done
with other games in their portfolio and how they work with their community and
feel they are an excellent partner for bringing Dreamlords: The Reawakening to
the people,” said David Rosén, CEO of Lockpick Entertainment
Dreamlords: The Reawakening will be available for
beta testing in July 2008 and release is expected for August 2008. More
