Kabam releases new features for social game, Dragons of Atlantis

kabam releases new features for social game dragons of atlantis dragonIn Dragons of Atlantis, players are transported to the lost world of Atlantis where they battle as one of four tribes vying for control of a doomed continent. There they harness the wisdom of lost civilizations to boost abilities, develop troops, manage resources and control the mightiest of mythical creatures, the dragon, in their efforts to build and defend a powerful empire in an ancient world built on a unique foundation of technology and high magic.

Players vie for dominance of all Atlantis. Great Dragons are initially used only for defense, but as players grow in power they will uncover the power of the new Dragon Attack feature. With this feature Great Dragons become a fearsome weapon for attacking, adding a new dimension to the game.

“Dragons of Atlantis is a dynamic world where player choice affects how the fight for Atlantis will unfold,” said Andrew Sheppard, Kabam Chief Producer Officer. “The game design reflects Kabam’s commitment to developing massively multiplayer social games on social networks by combining deep, immersive gameplay with the social connectivity and interaction provided by social platforms.”

Dragons of Atlantis brings together real-time interaction, resource management, battle strategy and rich social play to create an immersive game experience. The game’s pioneering design for a social game lets millions of gamers compete with one another simultaneously, encouraging players to form friendships and alliances. 

“Our players love the Great Dragons that are the heart of their cities, and players asked if their dragons could take on a greater role as active characters in the game,” said Nathan Germish, Executive Producer of Kabam San Francisco and Dragons of Atlantis. “We created the new Dragon Attack ability that allows Great Dragons to take to the air to rampage against enemy cities and troops. This feature addition has been very well received by our player community, but we’re just getting started—we have additional exciting updates players can look forward to, including city outposts with a whole new class of dragon.”
