New Trailer For SOE’s Pokemon / Monster Hunter Hybrid, Dragon’s Prophet
Sony Online Entertainment, the developers of highly popular MMO titles such as PlanetSide 2, recently released an announcement trailer for their 2013 MMO, Dragon’s Prophet. Although it’s a fair way off release players and industry veterans are already labeling the MMO using a variety of exciting game comparisons. The ability to catch, train and fly dragons has been compared to the hugely popular Pokemon franchise, finally offering a slight injection of Pokemon MMO type mechanics for eager players.
The video demonstrates the games awesomely attractive visuals, showing off some great skylines and cities. It also features a huge array of enemy monsters, each appearing bigger than the last, dwarfing all nearby players in comparison.
From what has been said about the game so far the boss battles will feature similar mechanics to the popular Monster Hunter games. With players having to learn the abilities and habits of their enemies if they hope to take them down. It’s early days yet as the game isn’t expected to launch until mid 2013, but that leaves plenty of time for SOE to build up more hype with added trailers and feature announcements. Watch this space!
