Players can finally take fight with dragons in aerial combat in Riders of Icarus. Nexon America officially released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming free-to-play MMORPG Riders of Icarus. The new gameplay trailer showcases the game’s wild combat using the flying mounts that are available players. You can check out the new preview in the player below.
In the game, players get to use dragons as their winged mounts. Players take the role of a Rider with special combat abilities to explore a world to tame. Players will be able to collect and train a variety of hundreds of wild beasts, and each one has unique special abilities. Players have to master the game’s aerial combat style in order to dominate the world of the game. Players can also join with other battle-ready heroes.
The premise does look like something fun and different for an MMORPG. Getting to train and ride dragons throughout the world looks like an enticing prospect. It should be interesting to see what Nexon is able to come up with here.
The open beta for Riders of Icarus is set to begin on July 6. The Founder’s Pack is available today for pre-order. The official release date for Riders of Icarus will be announced later on.
