Believe it or not, there are two current attempts to secure the classic Darkfall license from Aventurine and reboot the game to its pre-Unholy Wars state. Yesterday we reported on how Big Picture Games is progressing toward an alpha test, and today we turn our attention over to Ub3rgames and its plans for Darkfall: New Dawn.
Ub3rgames posted a series of responses to community questions and concerns about the project, including why there won’t be a skill cap, what the team will do about macroers and hackers, and the eternal issue of griefing.
The team also said that it will not be going with crowdfunding to finance the title; it will be selling the game plus a subscription as soon as it can open up the store: “Whatever you pay us will translate into an actual service. You are buying a product with every customer laws protecting you. We do not want donations or investment, and it is partly why we did not go down the Kickstarter route. It is important for us that the player base sees their purchase as a safe expenditure rather than a gamble.”
