The Dreamlords saga has had a rather troubled past. After developer Lockpick Entertainment mostly dissolved in 2009, development for the game stalled until the remnants of the developer inked a new deal with Paradox Interactive to further develop the title under the appropriate re-branded name of Dreamlords: Resurrection. The MMORTS officially launched this week with an offer of 1,000 Paradox Ducats to players that sign up to play. The Paradox Ducats can be used to purchase in-game items to enhance your Dreamlord.
In Dreamlords: Resurrection, players take on the role of a Dreamlord to inspire a small group to become hardened warriors and fend off nightmarish creatures in fast-paced MMORTS action. The game features long-term character progression system achievements, clan operations and much more. Check out the official launch trailer and press release after the break for more details.

About Dreamlords: Resurrection
Dreamlords: Resurrection, developed by MMO studio Lockpick Entertainment, is a unique mix of two genres – the Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and the Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) - where the player takes on the role of a Dreamlord. Through a combination of both long -term strategic planning as well as intense real-time battles, Dreamlords must inspire and unite a small group of followers into a battle-ready army ready to conquer land, defend the populace against the Nightmares that roam the world, and band together with other newly awakened Dreamlords.
The inclusion of Cooperative Player-vs-Environment (PvE) play, allows for even greater intensity as players team up with a friend to launch an assault on the nightmares that haunt your people or attempt to slay one of the world bosses.
