Today we’re very happy to announce the next game in the Divinity Universe: Dragon Commander! Dragon Commander blends our favourite genres together and is a game of massive dragon combat, epic turn-based strategy and immersive role-playing.

Details on Dragon Commander will be revealed next week during GamesCom 2011, the world’s largest trade show for interactive games and entertainment, but to tickly your imagination, we’ve just launched a teaser site showing off some in-game footage.

Click here to see it in action.

What can I say, first impression certianly looks lke immersive dragon combat and a bit like the flying fortresses in ED / DKS. They also are 'proper' dragons with four legs...

Edit: Lar has just posted some info which answers some of my questions so I will move my comments to that thread.

That dragon on the right looks like it's wearing a jetpack..

How large are the dragons in this game specifically the one you shall be controlling. DKS was great although I felt as if the dragon was a little too small but I guess that was necessary.

So this is basically a look into the past ?

Anyway, the idea sounds great ! smile

It reminds me a little bit of ... the game called "Homeworld", without its story, of course ...

Everything is huge in this one. if we get an opportunity, we'll do some comparisons later.

And yes, jetpack, well spotted. A lot of it is Maxos-age technology mixed with magic, and an afterburner behind a dragon gives for some interesting gameplay - it's one of the reasons everything is huge.

I put some more details here

I can't like the facebook page. Is it normal or just a problem with my computer ?

Jet-packs on Dragons ? Well... yeah...

There seems to be something wrong with facebook. Can't like any link, not only those of DC.

Holy crapola, this looks positively amazing. I'm not a huge fan of strategy games these days, but the strategy/RPG hybrid gameplay does sound pretty exciting.

Looks like Freelancer with Dragons from the movie on the site 0_o.
Guess I'll have to wait how *that* can be combined with turn-based combat. And if the Dragon Combat isn't as bad as it was in DKS...

Damn, +1 fan! I really, really love Steampunk and fantasy and this is just... awesome! I've never played your games though, so I'm going to have to look more into them heh. Also, do I see elements of dieselpunk in there?

Looking forward to this, might even preorder collectors heh.

I'll try and not go off-topic too much, but its a subgenre like Steampunk, just even lesser known. Steampunk usually has steam-powered devices, Victorian architecture/designs, and typically takes place in the 1800s, as you probably already know. Dieselpunk is 1930-1950s era technology, thus it has a more "modern" feel yet still has many of the odd devices and awesome vehicles. The best example of Dieselpunk is the movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Dieselpunk is often confused with Steampunk, though I'm hardly suprised that it is. Its slowly making its way into mainstream audiences though, like Steampunk.

The reason why I said Dieselpunk is because that red faction has a lot of features typically found in Dieselpunk, like a lack of dirgibles instead having jet engines keeping things afloat.

Okay, thanks, I see.

I think some post-nuclear gammes would fall into that category, I guess ?

Nice announcement! I hope to see this on my Box, if you get us the same quality (even if it's not an RPG) like on TDKS... it will be a succes for sure.
