Gala Networks Europe has announced Phoenix, the upcoming update for its action-packed MMORPG Dragonica. Reborn on July 24th will be a brighter, more colourful Dragonica, as Phoenix brings a complete graphics overhaul to the game. The update will also introduce a new screen resolution option, the highly anticipated chain combos and a special limited-time offer for players with a character over level 50.
The most noticeable new development arising from the Phoenix update is the complete graphics and engine overhaul, which gives the game an enhanced look and improved feel. Walking around Dragotaka players will be able to spot the differences instantly, with more definition and texture visible on the characters and throughout the environments. To ensure players can make the most of the Dragotaka transformation, Dragonica will now support screen resolutions up to 1920×1080, allowing the game to be enjoyed in full HD for the first time ever.
Phoenix also brings with it the long-awaited chain combos, a new combat technique which allows Drakan and Human class characters to bring spellbinding action into play. Players will be able to use the Z and X keys on the keyboard in short succession to fight their opponents. These combos allow the player to perform devastating attacks from aerial assaults to back slides that take them out of harm’s way. All this allows for even quicker combat and can help players turn a losing battle around as combos have the potential to be even more devastating than some skills.
For a limited time only, players with a character over level 50 will also be eligible to create a free level 40 character of their choice. Players will able to choose the race and class of their new character, and will receive a full set of armour, a weapon for their chosen class and a host of free items to help them progress. This offer will only be available for a limited amount of time, so players should make sure they are eligible as soon as they can.
Along with a number of UI changes to improve the player experience, Phoenix is also set to introduce a new party buff, updates to several dungeons and maps, unification of the pet stats, and a host of new PvP buffs for all classes.
