Hey, whatever did happen to those Darkfall community spin-offs? It has been a while since we’ve touched base with these dueling projects, so let’s see what is going on with both of them this year.
Darkfall: Rise of Agon celebrated its three-year anniversary this past May and hosted several patches since then. Some of the changes introduced to the game include “billboard sickness” for using those teleports, capturable rune glyphs, and the return of the original Darkfall robes. Probably the biggest addition this year have been rare groves and rare mines, which were designed to send players scurrying to a location to grab goodies while fending off competition.
As for New Dawn, it looks as though that version of the game is long defunct. The website is down, the MMO stopped patching in the summer of 2018, the Twitter account hasn’t been updated since that year, and curious fans left without a sense of closure. The word is that the studio went bankrupt back in May 2018 with its assets auctioned off. But hey, at least we have Rise of Agon, right?
