Dragon’s Watch, the battle RPG from new London studio The Secret Police, backed by industry legends including Ian Livingstone CBE and Hayao Nakayama, arrived on the Google Play and Apple App Stores earlier this week.
Dragon’s Watch takes players to the realm of Kagria, overtaken by dark forces bent on destruction. Players must assemble a band of plucky adventurers, taking them on quests through the game’s fourteen regions (seven available at launch) – through forests, haunted castles, dark swamps, tropical islands and much more.
Dragon’s Watch introduces a new control system – the Revolver – which gives tactile and tactical control over six heroes during battles. Inspired by the original iPod control wheel, the Revolver brings a new level of depth to the battle RPG genre. Coupled with the game’s vast range of Heroes, each with their own skills and special attacks, this makes Dragon’s Watch quick to pick up, but with the depth to keep players engaged for the long term.
Watch the official launch trailer for Dragon’s Watch below:
Unusually for a free-to-play RPG, Dragon’s Watch can be played offline – avoiding the difficulties faced by some players who find themselves unable to play their favourite titles on the move. The Secret Police’s unique technology platform allows offline players to play for up to 12 hours, synchronising with the game’s servers once a connection is available again – ideal for players on the move.
The game also gives players a first glimpse of the Arena – where PVP battles take place in real time. This beta feature is being previewed at launch to help the team with user feedback – the Arena will become a major part of the game in 2018, with many more modes and features coming soon.
As a launch reward, those who play in the first week, from December 6th onwards, will be rewarded after launch with an ultra rare Hero – a bonus which will never be available to players again.
