Our mages have conjured up a wonderful update of Driftland - the shattered planet!

Posted by on


Powerful mage, only you can decide the fate of Driftland! Shattered pieces of the planet await your ultimate power and the helpless citizens of your Empire turn their eyes to you, hoping for your guidence. There was no better time to claim your legacy - Driftland has just received a huge pack of new languages and features that make the experience more complex, challenging and entertaining than ever!

The ability to move or terraform floating islands and connect them with bridges or arcane portals, battles between heroes endowed with free will, the ability to tame flying creatures or construction of powerful aerial machines - all of that now gain more depth with the introduction of diplomacy! Wage wars, contract alliances and prove to be a loyal ally… or cunning manipulator. Possibilities are endless!

Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenue! Привет! Bienvenido! Witaj! Dun gadur!
New Language Versions:We know how important it is for you to play Driftland in your native languages. You were sending us countless messages and we can finally answer them with not 3, but 4 new language versions of the game! Russian, German, French and Spanish joined English and Polish (released earlier). We also continue our work on the Chinese language!

Diplomacy Launch:Diplomacy entered the final stage of development and you can clearly see that this is one of the features that change… everything.
