COPENHAGEN, August 7th, 2019: 5th Planet Games A/S (OMX: FIVEPG) is pleased to announce that the official launch of the highly awaited game sequel “Dawn of the Dragons: Ascension” will take place on August 27th, 2019.
Furthermore, an agreement of exclusivity has been made with the well-known platform provider Kongregate. The agreement means that Kongregate will launch, feature and promote the game exclusively on its growing Kartridge platform for one month. On September 30th, 5th Planet Games will launch the mobile version of Dawn of the Dragons: Ascension on the Google Play and Apple App Store.
The CEO of 5th Planet Games, Henrik Nielsen, is excited about releasing the sequel to the loyal and dedicated fans of the successful Dawn of the Dragons.
“It’s great to be able to deliver the promised sequel to such a legendary RPG (Role Playing Game) as Dawn of the Dragons has proven to be,” says Henrik Nielsen.
“The exclusivity agreement is also very valuable. The Kartridge platform fits Dawn of the Dragons: Ascension perfectly and at the same time Kongregate wishes to promote their rising platform through our game. It’s basically a win-win situation.”
Kongregate is an American mobile, PC and Console publisher, as well as a web gaming portal with more than 15 million active portfolio players and more than 100 million game downloads. Kartridge is aiming to be the gaming platform of tomorrow; it’s easy to use and without the technology constraints of traditional web browsers.
Dawn of the Dragons: Ascension is a strategic, grid based, combat RPG with a rich narrative and a focus on Guilds. It follows the style and gameplay of the original Dawn of the Dragons game, which was launched in 2010 and has since thrilled thousands of loyal players.
As a community-based game the original Dawn of the Dragons has succeeded in retaining a dedicated userbase who are willing to come back again and again. The original game provided a steady stream of revenue, and 5th Planet Games CEO Henrik Nielsen believes that the new game has potential to follow that trend.
“The new game is great, and I know the players are going to love it,” says Henrik Nielsen.
“This time around we will publish using multiple platforms, which gives us a potential for a far bigger userbase. I’m confident that both existing and new users will embrace Dawn of the Dragons: Ascension.”
