Dragonshard Closed Beta Starts

Dragonshard Closed Beta Starts

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 Atari’s
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 Xen’drik; 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.
