Forget about work and daily stress and escape into a world of action role-playing as Kyme, a warrior of the Alliance and former prince of a kingdom that has fallen into the hands of the Empire. Following the rescue of his sister, Kyme begins a quest to discover how the Empire has become so powerful. Drakengard battles are fought in one of three modes of play: Dogfight, Strafe, and Melee. Dogfight Mode features air-to-air battles as players ride on the back of the red dragon. Strafe Mode includes air-to-ground battles in which players ride the red dragon while attempting to wipe out enemy armies. Melee Mode places Kyme on foot, where he wields a variety of weapons while fighting hundreds of soldiers.
