The Dragon DNA System will allow players to create their own unique dragon in Scalebound.
Get ready to trick out your dragon. Platinum Games Creative Producer Jean Pierre Kellams has revealed that when Scalebound releases next year, you’ll be able to customize your dragon exactly the way you want.
There are three different options for tricking your dragon out: morphing (which allows you to create hybrid dragons), parts, and armor. Additionally, there are three types of dragons you can choose from: Rex, Tank, and Wyverns — each type containing its own unique traits and assets.
As mentioned above, morphing will allow for many different customization options. By using gems at dragon shrines you can combine different attributes of different types of dragons. For example, you could combine the strength of the Tank and the speed of the Wyvern. Morphing changes both the dragons physical and visual attributes.
Parts on the other hands will allow you to grant your dragon with permanent buffs. These buffs alter its physical appearance, as well as its elemental characteristics. Parts make a dragon’s offensive traits stronger.
Armor does the opposite: it makes defense stronger. Players will not only have to buy armor for their dragon but maintain it, as it can be damaged and even destroyed completely in a fight.
Scalebound releases for Xbox One and PC sometime in 2017.
Ever since the days of MTV’s Pimp My Ride, I have been obsessed with customizing my ride. The only better ride than a fully customized 90’s lambo, is a decked out dragon. If this system proves to be extensive, it will easily be one of the biggest selling points for me, as currently I’m on the fence with Scalebound.
