Drakan released for PS2

  SCEA announced today that Drakan: The Ancients' Gates is available for the Playstation 2. The game is a continued series that originated on the PC and has now been converted to the top-selling next-generation console. Drakan: The Ancients' Gates is an exclusive title for the PS2 and was developed by Surreal Software Inc.

   Drakan: The Ancients' Gates features Rynn and Arokh with their adventures in the ancient decaying world of Drakan, undergoing new experiences with increased abilities, sophisticated gameplay and stunning graphics. Battles alternate between air-based combat, where Rynn and Arokh team up for aerial battle, and hand-to-hand combat with Rynn fighting their enemies on the ground. Players can trade items and skills to boost the abilities of rider and dragon. They can utilize their fighting abilities to master more than 80 weapons and become skilled archers, deadly fighters or powerful sorcerers. Drakan: The Ancients' Gates allows players to adventure through eight unique and beautiful environments including treacherous mountains, murky swamps, barren deserts, lush islands and frigid arctic regions.

   "We are excited to bring the popular Drakan franchise to the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. "With Drakan: The Ancients' Gates, we are adding a very unique title to the PlayStation 2 library, one that allows players to engage in both ground and aerial combat with a fearless dragon and a brave warrior in beautiful, lush game environments. The release of Drakan: The Ancients' Gates on PlayStation 2 allows us to appeal to a broad audience including fans of the series and fantasy enthusiasts, continuing to drive the formation of the PlayStation 2 platform."
