A new online adventure game with cross-platform functionality, Dragon’s Crown, was unveiled at E3 2011 by Ignition Games. Dragon’s Crown will release in 2012 for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The game will support four-player same-screen cooperative play and real-time online gameplay.
Dragon’s Crown thrusts players into a medieval world packed with monster-filled dungeons as they set on a mission to unlock the secret behind an ancient dragon threatening the world. The game will be heavy on sword-and-sorcery action, while an array of character customization features will be available for each of the six different player classes.
Dragon’s Crown will include a singe-player component, but the real draw is four players teaming up online for a co-op mission.
The PlayStation Vita version of Dragon’s Crown will offer the same hand-drawn animation, special effects and soundtrack as the PS3 version, a testament to the handheld’s HD capabilities.
In terms of the cross-platform functionality and interoperability, Ignition Games remains mum. A likely feature will be saving your progress on one platform to the cloud, allowing you to pickup where you left off on the other platform later. However, the exact features between the two versions of Dragon’s Crown will be revealed at a later date.
