THQ*ICE's first free-to-play MMO Dragonica Online is holding a grand opening celebration tomorrow, with special events and contests running all weekend long.
After rigorous closed, open alpha and beta testing, THQ*ICE is ready to call Dragonica Online a game tomorrow, inviting new and current Dragonicans to participate in all sorts of special events, leading up to their first holiday event at the end of the month. Planned events include an Around the World in 80 Hours contest where players take screenshots of their journeys, posting them in the forums for a chance at prizes; the opening of the Emporia War Challenge, with the THQ*ICE guild taking on all comers in the first weekly battle for ownership of Emporia; the opening of the game's third dungeon; increased experience points and gold drops for the entire weekend; and the chance to win a collectible Dragonica Online Game Card by logging in every day between the 15th and 22nd.
For those unfamiliar with the game, think of it as a 3D version of Ragnarok Online, with adorable characters and arcade gameplay well-suited to game pad control. And it's free, so you might as well visit the game's website and try it out.
