An update on the popularity and upcoming features for the next Dragon+ coming in June:
Since the all-in-one D&D companion launched in the App Store and on Google Play, Dragon+ has delighted fans of Dungeons & Dragons and newcomers alike.
Within the first week of its iTunes release, Dragon+ reached the following milestones:
- Featured in the Best New Apps section
- Ranked #3 app overall in the News Stand
- Reached #1 in the Entertainment category in the News Stand, ranking ahead of publications like People Magazine and Maxim
Readers are enjoying the sleek modern layout, the multi-media content (including videos from Acquisitions, Inc. and a new comic presented by Scott Kurtz of PVP), and deep-dives into the lore of the Forgotten Realms and Elemental Evil storyline. And the user reviews have been really flattering. On the App Store, Dragon+ has a 4.5 star rating based on 128 reviews, with the vast majority ranking the app as five stars.

Readers can look for the next issue of Dragon+ to drop in June. The issue will focus on the legacy Dungeons & Dragons has had in video games and will include new details from n-Space on the world and heroes in the upcoming CRPG Sword Coast Legends, as well as pre-generated character sheets based on the companions players will recruit in the single player campaign. In addition, Ed Greenwood, the creator of the Forgotten Realms setting, will provide a preview of his new book Spellstorm, and readers can learn about updates on the D&D Adventurer’s League.
For the cover of the June issue, Wizards of the Coast tapped the talents of the artist known as Hydro74, who has created striking vector-based artwork for properties like Star Wars, Halo and the film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
