Darkfall: Rise of Agon development celebrates booting up the original game code

Darkfall: Rise of Agon isn’t the only project out there aiming to resurrect the original version of Darkfall, which means that the developers need to live up to a lot of expectations. The first development blog is celebrating the team’s first major milestone: Successfully turning on the game’s servers on an old version of the source code. It works!

The development blog is also meant to help introduce the team behind the resurrection project to the fans eagerly awaiting more news, complete with screenshots of the early test build and a statement of design philosophy. Since it’s a small team, there’s a definite emphasis on low development times with high overall impact. Today, though, it’s enough to celebrate that the core is working.

Nakua Zariarn I doubt very seriously I’ll play either game.  If I played Darkfall again, I would probably play Unholy Wars.  But as to the reboots, I believe both developers should put their teams together and make one title.  It’s senseless to have 2 reboots.  It’s only going to make the very small community smaller.

Thoemse I agree but Ub3rgames is upgrading the game to match the new hardware, from dx9 to 11 and from 1 core to multicore. So the overall perfromance will have a huge boost expecially with today standards.
Remember that Darkfall engine in the only one in the whole mmorpg market that can handle 10 000 player with a true realtime fps combat in the same map, without invisible walls, without instances, with an veru large range of view.

I played this on and off. It has many good ideas and the brutal full loot system is not for anyone. That is not the issue though. The game had a bad engine to start with, strange hitboxes and twitch swortplay (at least in Darkfal) leads to absurd PVP dances.
I know that there is no real Darkfall successor out there but i don’t think reviving this dead horse that was sick to start with is the right way to do it.

Tethyss Rise of Agon is more close to the old game and mainly focus on pvp (read the comments of the old playerbase in their forum where they wrote that can’t
wait to pvp and kos everything). Some devs there also like
fast traveling, global banking and mass zerg.
If you want a
sandbox with pve/harvesting/crafting roles and minimal pvp and a racial
local economy you should consider the other version.

Zariarn Consider New Dawn version not this, New Dawn discourage same faction meaningless killing thanks to racial warfare, watchtowers and penalties for arac clans. Don’t trash Darkfall as a whole because 1 vision is focus on hardcore pvp, you have 2 iterations this time to chose from.

How many versions of this game can be sustained at once?

I might actually try this game again if the PVE mechanics were slightly more friendly.  Beyond the griefing part, I think there was a playable game in there somewhere.  Looting a mob took way too long but maybe that was to enhance the PvP part, now that I think about it.
