Dragon Oath Open Beta Now Live!
Dragon Oath, a free-to-play martial arts MMORPG, is now open to all gamers. Its server "Zion" opened at 4:00 P.M. (PST) Nov. 5th after a 12-hour shutdown starting at 4:00 A.M to allow users to download the new client.
New users are encouraged to sign up at www.dragonoath.com and explore the expansive world of ancient China. Dragon Oath boasts over 300 different martial arts skills, 136 armor sets with up to 116 million combinations of weapons, over 200 pets with different attributes, 100 automated daily in-game live events, and much more!
Many exciting features have been added to Open Beta, like "Soccer Field Battle", a monthly event that lets players battle against an onslaught of killer soccer balls, and "Martial Battle", a PvP battle in which representatives from each class will be transported to a special battle arena to combat with one another to prove whose class is the best.
"We had over thousands of players log into Dragon Oath during the closed beta phase. We listened to what they had to say, and while we were not able to accommodate every request, we made numerous changes we think players will appreciate that help bridge that canyon between Western and Eastern designs" said the Dragon Oath's Localization Manager David Markowitz.
To celebrate the Open Beta launch, the ChangYou team will hold special events both in-game and off-line. Many great gifts such as iPods and Facebook Cash will be given away. Current players who already became Kung Fu masters would love to guide new players and pass on experiences to help them start the path to Kung Fu supremacy.
