Darkfall: Rise of Agon looks to sub-only model, aims for public beta this fall

    
45

Darkfall: Rise of Agon (not to be confused with the other Darkfall reboot, New Dawn) revealed its plans for getting off the ground by the end of 2016, including its test schedule and pricing.

According to the team, Rise of Agon will go through three test phases this year. The first phase is a limited, invite-only alpha test in the second quarter. This will be followed by a founders-only closed beta test over the summer, and after that will come a lengthy half-year public beta starting in the fall.

The game’s store and account management systems are slated to come online within the next few weeks. When that happens, fans can opt to purchase one of three founder’s packs, ranging from $20 to $100. Founders packs are the only way to get closed beta access, whereas the public beta will charge a monthly fee of $11. The team confirmed that it will not charge a box price for the launched game, only a $15-per-month subscription to play.

Ket_Viliano Zycor jeremy2020 That shit company did NOT make the game. That shit company pretty much hijacked the game from another company called Razorwax. They took over and ruined Razorwax’s vision, and most of the developers from Razorwax quit because of it.

Well, if it’s going to draw the PK kiddies away from BDO (and the forums) then I’m all for it. At least until this iteration also implodes and then we’re back to square one.

how many times is Darkfall going to reboot and fail?

FFA PVP is never going to succeed in a MMO.

FFA PVP games focus so much on the FFA HARDCORE PVP and not enough on simply making a good game.

MinionDave  The game came and went twice already so they are going to be just fine.

Damonvile Not at all. There are just 3:

1) Darkfall Unholy Wars, the fork of the original Darkfall, but is a empty desert because they waterign down everything and remove lots of content just to milk more money from the old playerbase.

2) Darkfall Rise of Agon, a vanilla vversion of the original Darkfall for the nostalgic old pvp players

3) Darkfall New Dawn, a complete rewamp of the game, a full sandbox with pvp, pve and crafting as the main core features, so more like a Ultima Online or EVE as a concept.

Leilonii They do not compete because they aim to 2 complete different playerbase, hardcore pvpers for rise of Agon and pvp,pve and crafters for New Dawn. Both are releasing the same game, but the goal will be the opposite.

Wyattearp1989 It depend, i agree with you that just relaunch a vanilla iteration of the original Darkfall can be a suicide, but between the 2 New Dawn will be more close to a sandbox, they called it an EVE with steroids. I think having a full sandbox in this sea of bland and redundant themepark is something really requested and welcome.

Baemir UW is a bastardized version of the original DF1, a fork. Darkfall rise of Agon will be a vanilla iteration of the original DF, so similar to a huge arena pvp, while New Dawn will be the true surprise coz they change lots of things and make the game more enjoyable for casuals and reoleplayers too, and so less pvp and more pve and economy player driven.

Don’t like this Rise of Agon vanilla vision at all, old DF1 fail because it was an arena gankbox where you kill everything even you own race. I think they will please just some old nostalgic veterans with this mindset.
I’m more interested in the New Dawn version where they promised lots of changes and a full sandbox with meaningfull pvp, pve and crafting, racial wars, territory control and a complete rewamp to specializations. I read you can be a full tiem crafter there while in rise of Agon they still allow everyone to max every single skill, how they can have an economy in this way? Reducing the grind is not enought and don’t fix the cause.
I think New Dawn have a better approach and a bright future with a more wider playerbase.
