Dark and Light previews dwarves, launches early access ‘later this year’


Does it seem as if Dark and Light is just creeping along with a tiny trickle of updates? We’ve got another one this week in the form of new screenshots posted to social media demonstrating the old game and the new.

“Behind-the-scenes, our devs are busy polishing DnL for its EA launch,” Snail Games says. It’s been in the process of rebooting the decade-old MMORPG since last year. It was originally intended to launch in the fall of last year, as we’ve previously chronicled. Earlier this spring, the game’s Chinese branch apologized to players for “again” making the decision to extend development, thereby delaying beta (and presumably our early access) until (at least?) summer, though Snail is saying “later this year“:

“Check out some of the work our devs have been putting into fleshing out the world of Dark and Light! Improved models, textures, lighting, and general world design are just a few of the things being polished up for the Early Access launch later this year.”

The new images are tucked down below.

That is a significant increase in quality. Bravo!

I hope it does better than it did in 2005… but if you hear whispers of a “preview” named Settlers of Garanth, you should probably run.


Such a pretty game. Will probably have to give it a shot.


Yeah I’d be happy to give it a look as long as I don’t have to pay for it.
