DOFUS stands apart in the crowded MMORPG field as half video game and half interactive cartoon, delivering an engaging concept in online gaming unlike anything on the market. Its beautiful manga-inspired graphics, robust tactical and turn-based gameplay and one-of-a-kind offbeat humor helps to further set it apart from other MMORPGs. Players can choose sides in an epic war and battle to conquer new territories, as well as choose from 12 unique character classes and participate in robust community-driven crafting systems, economies, guilds and alliances.
Set in a magical fantasy world, Amakna, where adventurers set off to recover the six missing Dofus’ – magical Dragon’s eggs – with hidden, mysterious powers that captivate any who behold them. Along the way players will experience a beautiful online world and meet others – friends and foes – who will help enhance and affect their gameplay status.
DOFUS 2.0 is set to engage new players via the all-new additions, as well as the critically-acclaimed, turn-based combat, compelling story, whimsical humour and community-driven economies and adventure.
