Aventurine is exploring a Darkfall 1.0 reboot

And now everything will be better forever!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Aventurine developer axilmar caused a bit of a stir with an informal poll regarding Darkfall’s pre-Unholy Wars incarnation? Apparently the notion has escalated from informal to we’re-actively-thinking-about-it.

Axilmar posted today on Darkfall’s forums that the team is “investigating if it is possible to bring back Darkfall Online from a technical point of view.” He also mentions a possible Kickstarter drive before reiterating that Aventurine has not decided one way or the other when it comes to crowdfunding.

Pro-tip: They were actively thinking about it before the “informal poll.”

Marketing.

It’s a good idea but I think they should also look to address one of DF1’s major failings and put a soft cap on skills. Then they might just have the next UO.

cald agemyth  That’s a really good point. The damage was done and a wipe would have been unthinkable. But now …

Lol this can’t be good for the athmosphere in the ailing DFUW community.

agemyth the main issue at launch was that a load of people found a way to skill up without doing much at all.. .after the first month this was patched out but it was a bit late by then as you had a huge group of players with skills far above everyone else.

if they relaunched now they would not have the issues as its all been fixed.
Also yes it only appeals to a small audience but thats just the way open world sandbox pvp games with full loot are.. not everyone likes that type of game and thats fine by me.

Damonvile DaemonHardrod the game closed down and they launched DFUW. So it was not really a wipe as such.

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/bring-back-dfo.html  PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU LIKE AMAZING GAMES, IT WILL ONLY TAKE A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME.

I’ve been playing Darkfall since day 1 of the original.  The original Darkfall was an amazing game but it was simply not managed correctly in any way shape or form.  It had the potential to be as popular as a UO, AC, or EQ and I still believe it does in the right hands.  Aventurine has alot of new faces working at it and have improved immensely as a company in terms of communication, listening too, and implementing our suggestions, and the community would reflect that if you were to visit the forums atm and ask(The new GUI dev Axilmar for example).  If we put Darkfall in it’s 2012 state into the hands of the current devs I believe it will take off, and we will have an AMAZING game on our hands.  Please sign this guys, all were looking for is for a chance to make this happen!

Here we go again… 3rd time’s a charm. 
I only bought the original Darkfall, didn’t jump on the second edition, and will most likely not buy this one either, but I hope for the best for the devs at Aventurine, I really do. Good luck with your game, and in whatever you do in the future.
