Darkfall: Rise of Agon is now in development

Are you interested in a Darkfall reboot? No, not the official one that rewrote the game’s core structure, but something throwing the game back closer to its original incarnation. Big Picture Games announced today that it has acquired the rights from Aventurine, and Darkfall: Rise of Agon is moving forward in development, with fans already encouraged to sign up for alpha testing of the new old version.

This comes a month after the announcement that fan-based remake New Dawn was being allowed to move forward as well; it remains to be seen what this will mean for that reboot, the currently running game, or the price of peas in Denmark. The studio plans to release a development roadmap on Friday if you’re curious about the particulars of what separates this full-loot free-for-all PvP reboot from the others.

I liked it for the first month before it became apparent that the meta was to 24/7 afk macro skill grind plus gear grind yourself into a God that could one shot 20 other players at a time while being bulit proof. If the game had hard capped skill and gear levels then the pvp would have been fun. The game had as much PVE as BDO has but surprisingly the mob AI in darkfall was much better than in the newer BDO.

I am conflicted.
On one hand, I enjoyed the early days of the original Darkfall. Before we found out that there was indeed no softcap to skillpoints and all that jaz. On the other hand… there were so many things that needed work in the original darkfall.
Goodluck new devs. If you can fix up my gripes with the game that would be really sweet but I am not holding out hope. :C

I still predict that both reboots will bomb.  At least one of the City of Heroes reboots won’t be lonely when it bombs too.

WilliamWyrick Arrow physics + MMOs is pretty difficult.

Am I reading this right – there are two separate reboots of Darkfall with different development teams that will be competing with each other and the current incarnation of Darkfall for player attention? That’s seems kinda meta.

I agree with this post, there was a reason this game was rebooted. Now the new guys will get to see why aventurine stopped this game all together. It’ll be interesting to see the article of when this game sales off into the sunset :). Good luck new devs.

Perfect Hero Well, if they created something that inspired enough fanaticism in people that they’d want to do this sort of thing, then good for Aventurine!

ManastuUtakata I’m not sure which me meant, but Firefall would probably qualify too.

Dont be sour, always glad to see any PVP game in development, especially one I’ve had such good times in before.

Was this the game Mr. Eliot referring to when he was speaking about MMO’s that constantly reboot themselves in the Dailey Grind a week or so back?
…or least I am aware, is this like 5th reboot of this game of something? o.O

Well someone handed over a significant amount of money for a pile of spaghetti code and inevitable disappointment.
