Dragonshard is a real-time strategy game based on the new Dungeons & Dragons universe, Eberron, a cinematic and war-torn world of action, adventure and intrigue where fantasy meets magical technology.

Developed by Liquid Entertainment, Dragonshard incorporates classic role-playing themes, a powerful and dynamic real-time strategy engine all woven together with a rich storyline involving a global conflict for an immensely powerful artefact with the power to change the fate of Eberron itself.

Dragonshard takes place at time when the world of Eberron is in chaos. Three forces are vying for control of a massive dragonshard, known as the Heart of Siberys. The ancient artefact has come to rest in a mystical part of Eberron known as Xen'drik; once home to ancient and powerful civilizations, it is now a place of mystery and monsters. Shielded by a circle of high mountains and blanketed by never-ending tempests and blizzards, this region has been shunned for millennia.

Dragonshard is the first game ever set in the highly-anticipated D&D world of Eberron and the first modern real-time strategy game based on the D&D universe. Dual Layer Play allows gamers to seamlessly participate in two distinct styles of gameplay - the above ground where massive battles reign supreme and the underground where parties crawl through dungeons in search of treasure and more.
