Nexon Announces Riders of Icarus
Players will get to mount on the backs of dragons and other fantastical beasts in both land and air and explore a world where they can tame and train hundreds of rideable creatures with special abilities.
“With Riders of Icarus, we want to bring an all-new action element to MMORPGs: Thrilling aerial combat,” said Seok Hoon, producer, WeMade Entertainment. “There are many games with dragons and other flying mounts, but they hardly ever impact battles in a meaningful and entertaining way. In Riders of Icarus, mounts truly add another level of challenge and excitement, delivering expansive vertical gameplay in addition to action-oriented ground mount combat.”
First Closed Beta testing phase will take place from January 28 to February 2 and it will be limited to players from USA, Canada and Mexico. Future test phases will expand to other regions as well.
