Dark Age of Camelot’s fourth installment of the Otherworlds Campaign is out now

That looks pretty much like the existing world, really.

Have you been walking through Dark Age of Camelot recently and found someone whose pants were suspended by means downright otherworldly? That person may well have been wearing an Otherworldly Belt, which you can acquire from the fourth chapter of the game’s ongoing Otherworlds Campaign. Or perhaps that person just had, like, really strange suspenders or something, but it was probably the belt.

This installment of the campaign has players heading into otherworldly version of the Silvermine Mountains, the Black Mountains South, and Gotar. The official site also has a walkthrough for the previous steps in the campaign if you need some help catching up. So what are you waiting for? Dive right in and get your own unusual means for keeping your pants from falling down!

I was diehard DAoC but zero interest without Mark Jacob’s involvement.

Giggilybits SamVenice I played my last couple of years of the game on the “carebear” server Gaheris. When I go back there it is a ghost town . I can understand that though since those who remain are there for the RvR.

SamVenice  Every time I go back and play the 14 day trial certain areas of the game are packed solid.

Not all games with a smaller or diminished player base naturally go f2p/freemium. Niche games are still a thing. DAOC markets to  a very specific crowd that is smaller to begin with and they are willing to pay sub. A niche game most likely won’t survive with a non-sub revenue stream.

Yep, that’s why I said “years ago” instead of “now” :)
At this time is definitely too late, I agree.
Designing and implementing a freemium model is not feasable for daoc, considering the small current user-base, the zero-hype, the mechanics that would make nowadays easymode kids crying rivers.
Oh well – we’ll always have the memories.

SamVenice While I think it would be pretty smart of them to go F2P — The transition to F2P is too expensive for some of the really old games to do without a good level of support. Everquest was the only exception to this. Asheron’s Call, Ultima Online, Dark Age of Camelot, and Anarchy Online are still sub based games I believe. These games have very little support compared to other titles with huge support like Wildstar.

SamVenice I still remember it, and still play it on occasion. It will always be my “favorite” MMO. 
They must feel they’re making enough money from subs to continue with that model, or perhaps they don’t have the resources to switch over to a model with a cash shop.

The lack of comments.. I guess very few people remember this game (or were not in diapers when it was “big” by that-time-standards) so there’s nothing to spam about.
Anyway, the fact it still has a full price monthly sub is ridiculous – new quests or not, it’s not justified.
Should’ve gone freemium years ago
