You will have the chance to unleash your inner dragon and fly beyond the Hidden World on a fiery adventure to rescue Thunder’s family and, ultimately, save the dragon kingdoms.
Feeling the wind against your scales as you soar and dive through unexplored realms, you must use your speed, tail and claws to defeat the enemies and gigantic dragon bosses that stand in your way.
You will also be able to level up Thunder and his friends, unlocking access to new skills and powers that you will need to restore peace to the interconnected realms of ice, fire, darkness and beyond.
“We’re excited that in 2022 Outright Games will be able to deliver an incredible DreamWorks Dragons video game and help introduce the world to this all-new generation of characters,” explains Outright Games CEO Terry Malham. “As huge fans of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, we’ve loved transporting these amazing characters and realms from the newest TV series to a video game, as well as collaborating again with our partners at Universal.
