I’ve been to Colorado’s Durango many times, and I can assure you that there are no dinosaurs there. Nexon’sDurango, however, is overrun with the beasts, which means you should go in armed when the game launches at the end of 2017.
Yep, this morning Nexon announced a Q4 2017 worldwide mobile launch for the game, which it’s calling an “open-world sandbox massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in a primitive alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs.”
“Durango is the next evolution of fully-featured MMO experiences on mobile giving players full freedom to pursue various game pillars, all while meshing unique exploration and city building experiences with real-time collaborative and head-to-head battles against enemy clans and colossal dinosaurs. […] In these uncharted lands, players will band together to survive against carnivorous dinosaurs and flourish in this new world ripe for exploration. Adventurers will learn to use the land to their advantage and craft weapons, armor and tools in order to develop villages that can grow from crude gatherings to massive fortresses. Durango utilizes a revolutionary procedurally generated world building system that populates the massive open world with an infinite number of locations to discover and explore. Players will be able to colonize a vast number of stable continents or uncover and travel to unstable islands filled with resources, dinosaurs and secrets to uncover across a range of ecosystems and biomes that will surface and disappear into the sea at a moment’s notice.”
“The primitive creatures of Durango are part of the game’s living environment and ecosystem, from traveling in packs in search for water to banding together to fight other competing groups. Dinosaurs are much more than just enemies to be hunted, but they can also be tamed, trained and even ridden into battle. As the world of Durango expands players have the choice to create or join powerful clans or go at it alone, building villages in an effort grow influence and dominance among other players.”
