Hamburg, November 6th, 2013 – Bigpoint, a leading global developer and publisher of online games, is thrilled to announce the latest addition to its prize-wining action-RPG Drakensang Online – the dwarven Steam Mechanicus! The new dwarf class is now prepared to aid Drakensang's three veteran characters, the Dragonknight, Spellweaver and Ranger, in the unified fight versus the evil plaguing the peaceful world of Dracania. For the initial two weeks, the Steam Mechanicus will be available exclusively to premium subscribers.
The Steam Mechanicus: Skilled Engineer and All-Around Team Player
Stout and inventive, the dwarven Steam Mechanica of Dracania know one thing: machines. The blood of the greatest artificers in history courses through their veins and bequeaths unto them an understanding of machines imbuing them with the ability to construct a gun from a collection of pipes and screws – or so goes the saying. Originally, the dwarves lived deep in the mountains and kept to themselves. Since the hordes of the Dragon emerged from the Anderworld, however, they began seeking allies among other fighters to overcome their ancient enemies. Through their inventions, the dwarves are renowned and feared the world over for their prowess in battle. They fuel their deadly weapons by harnessing the power of steam, which they extract from deep within the Earth's core. When not fighting, dwarves are known for their humor and their love for technical toys.
The Steam Mechanicus has impressive mid-range firepower at his disposal, and is able to fire massive projectiles, hover with steam packs, build small artillery or rocket jump over cliffs. Furthermore, when the Steam Mechanicus has his blood up, he's apt to hurl grenades at enemies or don a suit of iron to join the battle on the front lines.
Drakensang Online is an action RPG that meshes the most compelling elements from MMOs and the realm of fantasy. Aspiring heroes can choose to embark on an epic journey as the Dragonknight, Spellweaver, Ranger and, now, the dwarven Steam Mechanicus. Brave heroes are all that stand between peace and permanent darkness, between the kind-hearted Dracanians and hordes of formidable monsters, beasts and rogues from the Anderworld. Players must complete challenging quests, explore a myriad of intimidating dungeons and prove their valor in a series of non-stop adventures.
Starting the journey in this free-to-play title has never been easier with no client download or installation required of any kind.
