About Dreamlords: Resurrection
Dreamlords: Resurrection, developed by MMO studio Lockpick Entertainment, is a unique mix of two genres – the Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and the Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) - where the player takes on the role of a Dreamlord. Through a combination of both long -term strategic planning as well as intense real-time battles, Dreamlords must inspire and unite a small group of followers into a battle-ready army ready to conquer land, defend the populace against the Nightmares that roam the world, and band together with other newly awakened Dreamlords.
The inclusion of Cooperative Player-vs-Environment (PvE) play, allows for even greater intensity as players team up with a friend to launch an assault on the nightmares that haunt your people or attempt to slay one of the world bosses.
