Darkfall reboots vie for your love (and your wallet)

For obvious example...

Both Darkfall reboot projects continue to barrel ahead, seeking to establish a foothold among the PvP community with their different visions. No matter which game you support (assuming that you have a preference), it appears that both reboots are making great progress toward launch.

New Dawn is working on getting a stress test going, but before that the team was able to get a feature patch put together faster than anticipated. The patch contains some quality-of-life improvements, like changing the default bindings, and reduced the complexity of skill acquisition.

Rise of Agon might be winning the race to get into players’ hands first, however. The game went into alpha testing last week with an initial wave of 500 player invites. An NDA is currently in place for the alpha, although the team expects to lift that soon and welcome a greater number of testers into the game. The reboot also launched a new website and online store for its fans.

You can check out Rise of Agon’s alpha launch trailer below!

Sythalin Yeah trash, of course thats why many 10’s of thousands of players played and enjoyed it. To date there is no other game that comes close to matching it in scope of siege/clan/naval/open world warfare in that kind of setting. Some are getting close. Maybe BDO, maybe archeage, maybe you could compare EVE territorial warfare but it isn’t really the same.

Rebooting the old ones is probably won’t attract/keep many interested for long. Still no reason they shouldn’t keep them alive. The old world of Darkfall was bigger weirder and alot of fun to explore.

The old world was great, but UW is all around a better built game in so many ways. Hopefully these reboots will be a positive for all 3 versions. Darkfall UW could use more players though. There has been discussion of UW going to a freemium model, which I can only hope brings some new life into the game.

If you try to perform CPR on two people at the same time, both will die.

Sythalin They’re going to tweak some numbers in a table somewhere, and it’s going to magically create a game that people want to play. That’s honestly what they’re doing. There will be no new systems or assets created.

Not only are they competing with each other, but they are competing with the original game. It doesn’t matter that they are different, they are pulling people from the same pool of players. And considering how extremely small that pool of players is it’s just a little bit absurd.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if at least two of these versions, and maybe all three, aren’t around a year after they are all on the market.

Nakua ArkJag Isn’t the current Darkfall game pretty much a brawler? It’s way more strict with its classes etc now. Anyhow, from the top description alone, New Dawn sounds way more awesome to me, and what the origninal Darkfall was like..right? O.o

Nakua schlag sweetleaf What are the difference they are trying to make? I tried reading up on both of them and they both want to bring back the old Darkfall?
