Dragon’s Prophet screens show off the floating continent of Laedis

Friday, 5th April 2013 16:32 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Screenshots of upcoming fantasy MMORPG Dragon’s Prophet have been released, showing off the Laedis continent of floating islands. According to lore, before the invention of airships, the place was so isolated that only the Osira inhabitants dwelled there, as the Eternal Dragon placed the inhabitants there during the First Dragon War. During the Second Dragon War, the continents “were continuously fractured and Laedis was flung high into the sky.” Thus, it remains there. It all looks rather lovely, and I was able to play some of the MMO during GDC last week. My full report will be posted sometime next week. Dragon’s Prophet will be published by SOE in North America, and Deep Silver and Infernum Productions per regional agreements in other regions.

    Had a chance to try it at last LAN, but there’s no reverse mouse Y axis, so I didn’t play more than 2 minutes.

    I can see why some mmo’s exclude that option, it takes months of development time to implement a checkbox and times a Y value by -1.

    It took me a minute to get used to the controls, and I kept falling off my dragon – due to my own silliness – but I had a decent time with it. I can’t say more or people won’t read my post next week. :)

    You know… if they’d left out the rider and concentrated on the life cycle of the dragon, to create something like Istaria with more focus on life and culture and less on insanely complex crafting, then I might be interested.

    As it is, it’s just an MMO with dragons. Which is one of a bazillion now. If that’s something I want, I’d rather play Istaria and put up with the insane crafting (which I have done, many times). Hm. I’m tempted to pop back into Istaria again, but the subscription keeps me away. They really need to go buy-to-play with that one.

    Still, there are few experiences like playing a dragon in Istaria. It was a very singular, very unique, very unusual, and very fun experience. I’d love to see more of that, really. One of my problems is that we tend to keep retreading old ground (man with gun, man with sword) but we rarely ever actually try anything new.

    Nothing against this, y’know? I just wish developers would go that extra step. As it stands, is this really any different than past MMOs?
