'Dawn of Fantasy' is an MMO for PC by Reverie World Studios.
With its latest patch, Reverie World Studios has changed its MMORTS Dawn of Fantasy by adding co-op play to the game.
The "Co-Op Social Patch" adds a new level of player interactivity to the game world of Mythador by introducing several new features and hundreds of small tweaks.
The patch (v1.1.9) adds friend lists, private messages, private chat channels, new public chat channels, and a full range of friend features. It also introduces co-op questing and sieges, allowing you to team up with friends and matched teammates alike to dominate the game world. Quests and sieges will be re-balanced for teams, so players will never be short a challenge. These new features bring the studio one step closer to guild implementation, which is planned for later this quarter.
"All of us at Reverie are really pleased with this patch," commented Dawn of Fantasy Assistant Producer Alex Walz, "It's our biggest patch, but more importantly, it represents a change in direction for the game. Up until this point, we've been working with the players and testers to fix numerous game issues and connectivity problems. But now we've crossed the hump. We can finally focus on implementing new features to offer our players a continually evolving adventure; we can now finish making the game we all envisioned before getting bogged down with the demands and deadlines of the corporate world."
Dragon units also get altered in this patch, greatly boosting their stats and making skilled dragons lootable. Players will also see a PvP protection timer in remote scenarios, trainable heroes, and increased dwarven mining rates.
Reverie World Studios says the company is already working on the next patch for Dawn of Fantasy, which includes tweaks to the game's pathfinding AI.
