DarkEden 2 returns to the vampire war

While you may not have heard of DarkEden, it’s actually one of the older continuously running graphical MMORPGs on the market, having started back in 1997. While it’s still running in Korea today, the hack-and-slash horror title’s North American and Japanese versions have long since gone dark.

Maybe it’s time for a fresh start? DarkEden 2 is currently under development by SOFTON Entertainment as an isometric action game, promising a return to the blood-drenched environments of its predecessor. There are four gender-locked characters in the closed beta right now, including a vampire, and apparently player killing is allowed and encouraged.

Steparu shares hands-on impressions from the Korean beta, and we’ve got the trailer for you after the jump!

God… as an obvious Diablo 1 ripoff, the original Darkeden looked pretty good graphically at least.  This looks terrible.  The original had a halfway decent atmosphere, and had a lot of style, whereas this looks like your average run of the mill 3D isometric thing.

The original wasn’t terrible, not great, but still pretty good especially for its time.  This just seems lazy.

Looks sort of like The Secret World if it were written and directed by Michael Bay. :-)

Still, there’s likely a market for that …

“The ceaseless war begins again.”

That quip made me smile :)

Doesn’t look as good as the first game.

War of the Immortals/Battle of the Immortals + Zombies + Vampires  =  DarkEden 2
At least that’s what it looks like judging from the video.

Midgetsnowman Drabbad It’s actually kind of a Diablo like dungeon crawler that sometimes has PVP. So it’s a grinder, but all Diablo games are nothing but grinders.

Oyjord What makes you think 200 years is going to change millions of years of evolution ?

If a war is ceaseless… how can it begin “again”?
Game looks pretty boring too.

Isometric, gender locked? Ugh, no thanks.

“Oh mai gawd. Gender locked classes.”
In all serious, like most sequels, it will suck compared to the source material.
