<blockquote><i><b><center><font size="+1">DAWN BREAKS ON THE NEXT GENERATION OF MMORTS</font>
MMORTS DAWN OF FANTASY SET FOR JUNE 3rd RELEASE</center>

Milton Keynes, UK – Jan. 18, 2011 –</b> International videogames publisher 505 Games have today proudly announced a publishing deal for Dawn of Fantasy, an upcoming massively multiplayer online real time strategy (MMORTS) title from developer Reverie World Studios. Set in the massively multiplayer fantasy world of Mythador, which supports its own living economic, trading, development and diplomacy systems, players will be given the opportunity to leave their mark on the land’s already war-torn history when Dawn of Fantasy is launched on June 3rd for PC.

Offering a fresh perspective on the fantasy RTS genre, Dawn of Fantasy will deliver a persistent world experience like none before. Thousands of Players living, building, exploring and fighting together to crush AI and player controlled strongholds and empires, in a rich tapestry of story-driven encounters. In a world that continues to trade and evolve even after logging off, players will also be able to test their armies' fortitude in auto-matched head-to-head multiplayer encounters on their road to becoming the biggest city-state in Mythador.

Each of the three different races available to players – elves, men and orcs – offers a radically different playing style based on a carefully balanced system of strengths and weaknesses. With an in-game narrative driven by a dramatic historical background, Dawn of Fantasy will combine rich storytelling with compelling gameplay to provide a strategy experience to appeal to MMO and RTS fans alike.

"Dawn of Fantasy is nothing short of the next step in the genre, highlighting the best elements that MMORTS games have to offer with just the right level of considered innovation," commented Ralph Pitt-Stanley, 505 Games. "In what we feel is an underrepresented genre, we're confident that Dawn of Fantasy will have what it takes to stay in the hearts of MMO, RTS and fantasy fans for a long time to come."

"As we catch a glimpse of the finish line after many years of development, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with 505 Games," said Konstantin Fomenko, Reverie World CEO. "Their dedication, ambition, and extensive history in the strategy genre will prove indispensable as we work toward completing our upcoming MMORTS, Dawn of Fantasy."

Designed with low system requirements in mind, the Dawn of Fantasy engine will nonetheless render armies of thousands of units and hundreds of terrain objects on screen for epic battle encounters. Once the dust settles on the in-game campaigns, players can try exploring their creative side by using the powerful map editor to design the fantasy encounters of their dreams or perfect their skills in fast-paced skirmish combat.

Released exclusively for PC, Dawn of Fantasy will be published by 505 Games on June 3rd, 2011.

*Ahem* "Released exclusively for PC". What happened to the Xbox version? Did I miss something?

An Xbox adaptation was never officially under production. The idea was something we were looking into, especially with our former, now-bankrupt, publisher Lighthouse Interactive - but we had always said that if production were to happen, it would not start until after the release of the PC version. There may still be an Xbox game in the future, but as of now, this is just speculation.

Oooh, bad choice. Nasty place. If you ever get the chance to go, don't. It's a new town, in that it was planned with efficiently in mind (straight, grid-like roads, 'functional' buildings etc.)
Heh, just kidding, but I think the best bit about this update is that we found out that it's not EA! :)

Someone should go update the wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawn_of_Fantasy) to reflect that there will be no Xbox 360 version.
