Dragon Raja, Archosaur Games' long-awaited open-world MMORPG, finally has a solid release date for iOS and Android. Over 1.5 million pre-registered players will be thrilled to hear that it's set to launch globally on February 27th.

The game boasts some of the most impressive visuals yet seen on mobile devices, with a colourful, vibrant world to explore that pulls from both sci-fi and fantasy settings. 

You'll be faced with the imminent return of slumbering dragons set to once again rise and regain control of the world. Humanity requires the help of a crack team of hybrid warriors if we're to survive. This lot can harness a variety of draconic powers, using the dragons' strengths against them.

Dragon Raja's fast-paced combat plays out in real-time, allowing for strategic manoeuvres and smart use of your draconic skills. You'll use these to take on world bosses, challenging dungeons, and more with up to 100 other players simultaneously.

The lengthy campaign will see you meeting and befriending "an incredible cast of characters" that each have their own unique backstory and role to play in saving the world from the dragon menace. There are also multiple endings for you to uncover by making different decisions during your run.

It's clearly an ambitious title in terms of its immersive qualities. The game introduces an "AI smart interaction" system to make the NPCs feel alive, allowing them to respond to your actions, as well as an advanced physics system that causes the city's smaller details to really pop.

For example, wet or icy surfaces will cause you to slip and slide, and a great many environmental objects can be destroyed during combat. The world also has a full day/night cycle as well as some impressive seasonal changes.

It was built using the industry-leading Unreal Engine 4, which has also powered the likes of Borderlands 3, Days Gone, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and – of course – the upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated.

If you're yet to do so, you can pre-register to play Dragon Raja at launch over on both the App Store and Google Play. Look for it come February 27th.
