SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,126

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that the North American open beta for Dragon's Prophet will be live later this afternoon PST. Players can sign up on the official site, grab the client, and begin playing as of May 30th.

"Whether they are terrorizing towns, serving as mighty companions, or swooping in to save the day, dragons unfailingly fascinate us, and pop culture's interest in these mystical beasts has become insatiable," said Todd Carson, Senior Producer of Dragon's Prophet. "Dragon's Prophet answers this community call for more dragons and is an extraordinary addition to the MMO fantasy genre, granting players access to hundreds of different types of dragons and offering a captivating combat system with high levels of customization -- for characters and dragons alike!"

    So they fixed the translation issues, sluggish animations, and the numerous other issues already?

    They took the servers down at 11pm Pacific last night to address some localization and "other" issues.  The voiceovers are second rate, but at least match the text now.

    Character creation is pretty good.

    The game is definitely a newer build.  It contains the third new starting area.

    The fire still looks weird like it got plucked from the uncanny valley and dropped into the game.

    I don't know too first hand much beyond that.  There is a discussion on the forums about housing availability and pricing.  Housing lots go for astronomical prices.  The 300x plot is 40M gold.  the 500x plot is like 111M gold.  That doesn't include taxes (because guilds can set taxes on your property), registration fees, or the daily rent which was 1776G per day for the 300 or 500x unit.

    I seriously hope they sell plots for Station Cash so I don't have to deal with that.

    I read on another news site that it was just EU today.. But maybe that has changed?
     
    EDIT: I see the change... Ooh.. Must of been put in a rough spot with the announcement of Rift going F2P very soon.. This might end up as another failure for SoE's "third party" foray.. Might be the end of the third party game era at SoE..

    I believe they said servers open up at 5pm est for non VIP this was to give VIP a full 24hr head start.

    Sorry I meant 5pm PST

    It was delayed because they had an early access VIP Code email issue.  5pm PST guys just a few more hours.   They had to do this to ensure they gave EVERYONE who got early access 24 hrs since the VIP Codes were screwed up.

    Looked terrible in closed beta, but combat was pretty good. I'll check it out again to see how it's improved.

    Typical player such as you, who plays the tutorial and is already ready to give up the game, because the lazyness won over your interest in the game. The graphics are not at Gw2 level but it's not a bad looking game either.

    Not... ready.

    I've played for an hour. Some localization issues have been fixed, but I still stumbled across a few dev codes instead of text. Cutscenes are still a bit choppy. Not all subtitles match voice yet.

    Character creation is great, many options. Questing (after the tutorial) is your basic stuff, nothing new there, no voice from the quest givers. Close to getting my first dragon, I think I'll have a look at how that plays out, but so far nothing has grabbed me enough to think I'll continue for long. Graphics are nice though.

    When I played during closed beta I was completely underwhelmed. I went in knowing nothing and not expecting very much at all since I had only seen a couple snippets on this website. The combat is boring, the enemies didn't prove tough, but had a lot of hp and made the twitch based action combat boring because it was just jumping around smacking the same mob forever. The quests were generic and didn't provide much fun. The only redeeming thing I found was that the graphics looked very nice and ran fluid on my pc.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    They made it so you can't even download the game until "it opens" just to give the VIPs more time. Annoying? Very.

    Lots of fixes in the OB build from what I've seen so far (in the headstart last night).

    Are you sure the OB isn't the 31st? The 30th is almost over. ;)

    The last CB build was the buggiest most incomplete thing I've ever seen it almost seemed like an extremely early Alpha build

    Is there going to be a magic patch sometime soon that completely transforms this game from the ground up in all aspects and makes it worth people's time?

    I think you mean you fail.  If you can't get with the times don't play on pc.
