Infernum Productions, game publisher based in Berlin and developer Runewaker Entertainment, best-known for their highly-successful title “Runes of Magic”, have signed a license agreement for the fantasy MMORPG “ Dragon’s Prophet”. With this agreement, Infernum secures the free-to-play title’s operating and marketing rights for Europe and Turkey. The online game, which has now entered the last stage of development, will be released next year, initially in German, English and French with other language versions to follow.

Dragon’s Prophet takes free-to-play titles to a new level with its array of content and distinctive features. It combines all virtues of a classic MMORPG and simultaneously manages to represent this genre’s evolution to offer players an epic adventure set in a deep fantasy world.

At this point, Runewaker and Infernum’s management can look back on long years of cooperation. Infernum’s CEO Andreas Weidenhaupt comments: “With Runewaker’s first title, “Runes of Magic,” which I licensed back in 2008 and was marketed together with Frogster later on, we succeeded in establishing the title as a successful and award-winning MMO, worldwide. With Dragon’s Prophet, Runewaker are now developing their newest blockbuster title and I am convinced that we will repeat this success story. We are very proud of this license. Runewaker’s trust in Infernum clearly shows that our positioning is just right.”

John Tang, Runewaker’s CEO explains, “We are excited to announce our partnership with Infernum. They are a very experienced team of passionate professionals who are able to successfully develop Dragon’s Prophet as a brand on the European market. With their focus on building a strong community, we hope to deepen the relationship between players, publisher, and developer to create an innovative and immersive online world. Runewaker are looking forward to the cooperation with Infernum in bringing a truly unique gaming experience to the players.”

Right from the start, Dragon’s Prophet will offer a vast scope of content. The world will be inhabited by hundreds of dragons, which players can tame, train and battle alongside. Furthermore, they can use their emerging symbiotic link to benefit from special dragon skills, from flying on their backs and entering into combat, both air-bound and on the ground. Furthermore, MMO players will be delighted by the frontier and housing systems which feature cross-server guild battles for areas and resources as well as the fluid action-based combat system.
