TORRANCE, Calif., June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- JumpStart®, the leader in learning-based games for kids, today announced the launch of Return to Dragon Island, the latest in their series of School of Dragons expansion packs inspired by the Netflix original series DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge. The expansion pack for the massively multiplayer game will feature exciting new dragons and content right from season 3 of the DreamWorks Animation series - which makes its debut on Netflix today and takes viewers on an action-packed journey with the Dragon Riders as they venture beyond the borders of Berk to hunt down rival Vikings like Viggo, Ryker, and their expanded Dragon Hunter army. Return to Dragon Island includes 21 new quests, four new areas, mysterious new dragons like the Singetail, and the introduction of new characters including Valka and Eret from the feature film How to Train Your Dragon 2.
"With Return to Dragon Island, we're building on the success of our previous expansion packs like Call of the Death Song and Battle For the Edge, and we want to continue to give our 16 million School of Dragons players - and all fans of the film and television franchise - exciting new storylines and new ways to engage with their favorite characters," said JumpStart CEO David Lord. "And with all the exciting new quests to complete, undiscovered lands to explore and new dragons to train, our players will be learning core science concepts along the way."
In Return To Dragon Island, a mysterious thick fog has begun to expand across the waters of the archipelago, sickening, and stranding fellow Vikings! Players must first rescue them, before embarking on a journey to discover what the fog is, and from where it is emanating. As players venture outside of Berk, they can sharpen their minds through new learning-based quests in which they'll learn about core scientific concepts like earth systems, physical sciences, and engineering technology. The launch of Return to Dragon Island also coincides with a School of Dragons 2.0 update, which brings the game fully up-to-date with major plot points from the How to Train Your Dragon 2 movie – including the introduction of Valka, Hiccup's mom.
All current School of Dragons members will receive access to the new expansion pack for free for the duration of their membership, while non-members have the option to purchase Return To Dragon Island for 1250 Gems. School of Dragons is available to download on iTunes®, Google Play™, Amazon®, Windows, Steam and online at http://www.schoolofdragons.com/.
