As the weeks go by our attention is increasingly drawn to Beta1 which approaches soon (and when we will invite more of you to test) and the E3 conference in May. Already there has been a great deal of discussion and planning and we are looking forward to showing off Dragon Empires at this fantastic games expo. We plan to have demo pods so passers-by can see the game as well as other exciting activities occurring on the stand. If you aren't going, don't worry, we'll cover all of the news and events on our own web page and I'm sure you'll see us on your favourite games news sites too.
New web site!
We have launched a fantastic new site with loads more details about the game and the world of Fortitude!

Dev News - Web site
The Dragon Empires web site has just gone through its second revision and I think you will all agree that it looks and reads better than ever. We will continue to update the site and add new content over coming weeks. In addition to these changes we will also develop some great features for the final release of the game. Expect to see dynamic maps showing who owns what city, clan and character profiles and many other great features which will let you stay in touch with Fortitude even when you're not logged in.
