MMOs you’ve never heard of: Savage Hunt – Dragon’s Prophet, Ironsight, Until None Remain, and Battlerite

Welcome back to our intermittent series on MMOs and other multiplayer games you you’ve never heard of! Today we have four fresh titles to take a look at.

Savage Hunt

Gamigo announced Savage Hunt – Dragon’s Prophet this week, the successor to Dragon’s Prophet, which Gamigo is calling “one of the most successful MMORPGs ever launched.” MMORPG players will recall that Daybreak sunsetted the US version of the original game in 2015, though it continued on overseas. The company says the free-to-play title will launch on September 28th in English, German, and French, and yes, you can still “hunt, train, and fight with […] dragons.” Over 600 of them, in fact, though you’ll probably be distracted by “4000 exciting quests and events” and PvP battles. The official site doesn’t appear to be live just yet.

Savage Hunt – Dragon’s Prophet is the newest release after the long-standing success of Dragon’s Prophet. Discover new and epic adventures and find your own path in Savage Hunt – Dragon’s Prophet. Explore a fantastic world that combines classical MMORPG elements with unique features. Search through forests and mountains for rare dragons, items and always be prepared for the fight. In the new Book of Dragons, you can collect your dragons and plan your journey. Find, hunt and tame over 600 dragons with individual strengths and skills. Only the best hunters and collectors can improve their dragons and items.”

What else have we got?

Savage Hunt

Ironsight

Ironsight is a free-to-play South Korean multiplayer online PC shooter porting westward in “early 2018” – alsovia Gamigo. Closed beta should kick off in November. It’s promising “thrilling multiplayer action,” 14 maps, and “high-end visuals in what the company is calling a “new breed of shooter.”

Ironsight is set in 2025, as war rages over Earth’s last remaining natural resources between armed forces and private military companies (PMCs) equipped with cutting-edge weapons and drone systems. As the democratization of the Middle East progressed, western governments joined forces to establish the North Atlantic Forces (NAF) to secure the territory’s resources and rebuild North America and Western Europe. In direct response, eastern nations formed the Energy Development Enterprise Network (EDEN), enlisting PMCs to protect Middle Eastern resource-gathering facilities. This bitter struggle for power ignites a worldwide conflict the likes mankind has never seen.”

Until None Remain

Until None Remain is a VR shooter that is aping the battle royal/last-man-standing template. It’s due to hit early access on Steam on September 28th. It’s not entirely clear how many people will be competing at once, but bots are expected to fill in the gaps.

“Matches pit weaponless players against one another in a death match that continues until only one player remains. Players must rush to acquire weapons, armor, or specialty items such as jet packs, or traps. Scale walls or objects using magnetized gloves, jet around the arena in a jet pack, and interact with an environment that includes turrets, explosive containers, noxious gases, and more! Action takes place on a competitive map with poisonous gases which will push the players inward every five minutes. Matches will last for a maximum of 15 minutes, or until only one player remains. Players will be automatically matched for quick action and will be able to practice in an offline lobby. Matches will take a maximum of five minutes to begin. If a match has not filled up its slots by that time it will fill out the match with AI controlled players.”

Until None Remain

Battlerite

Finally, we have “PvP arena brawler” Battlerite from Stunlock Studios. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s the “spiritual successor” to the old Funcom-backed MOBA Bloodline Champions. It’s leaving early access for launch on November 8th, having racked up a million downloads so far. If you’re curious to play, you can do so for free for a week beginning on September 25th.

Seeing how they react on the Dragon’s Prophet forum, I’d say that was a pretty bad leak xD

The screenshots they are showing on the website, and what was used here for in-game are directly from the existing game… Screenshot here is from first town upon entering the game, after tutorial. Screenshots from the website are just different existing dragons, existing character models, existing special effects and existing building textures…

This looks like it’s nothing more than an attempt to re-launch a game that they’ve not updated in years.

I actually liked Dragon’s Prophet. I thought it was a lot of fun.

As an avid and active current Dragon’s Prophet player (the EU server is still running), it’s interesting that we have heard exactly nothing about a sequel. I’m a long, long time player of MMOs and as far as f2p series go, you could do much worse than DP. The dragon system is dynamic and adds a lot of depth to toon building. Sequel or no, it’s still worth giving the original a try. :)

If Battlerite qualifies then so does Raiders of the Broken Planet, the existence of which I just learned about like five minutes ago. Looks to be doing some unique things.

Battlerite was huge in popularity for a brief while on Twitch some months ago.

I think like many newly released online games they were sponsoring streamers having them play the game.

Albion did this pretty hard core. Now it’s no where to be found on Twitch.

Battlerite is such a well crafted game but something about it doesn’t draw me back in.

I’m sad to see it struggle, it brings so many great things to the table – it’s like an actually competitive and not silly WoW Arena fighting game combo.

Battlrite indeed is not a MMO, but an amazing PvP arena brawler.
One of the most skill based MOBAs

I tried Dragon’s Prophet, but it was very clumsy and rough. Might have passed as an indie MMO made by a small team, but as a serious effort by a decent developer and middling publishers there was no excuses for the issues it had.

There doesn’t seem to be much information about this Savage Hunt sequel / relaunch available.

Seems odd to me that the self-proclaimed “most successful mmo” is already in need of a sequel.

Nothing odd about Gamigo spewing BS though.

Battlerite is awesome but cmon, its not an MMO. Its 3v3 arena game with lobby.

Interesting. Screenshot of “Savage Hunt” looks exactly like one from Dragon’s Prophet – in fact, I even know this place ))) Still, it may be a good news. DP was (is) not a bad game, and it had a lot of interesting mechanics. But it was very un-polished, more like alfa-version. So, if this if DP 2.0 or even 1.5, I will try it )
