Darkfall is a fantasy MMORPG from Ub3rgames. Players are able to create their characters and develop them the way they liked. The game is sandbox oriented and based in a PvP system where there are no safe zones. Darkfall was originally shut down in November of 2012 to make way for its sequel, Darkfall: Unholy Wars.
In its original incarnation, Aventurine's Darkfall was known to have more than a few exploits. Those exploits have remained in the code even after closing the game and licensing it to a pair of new developers to bring it back to life. The Rise of Agon team recently released the game to alpha where the same code being used by it and Darkfall: New Dawn has been datamined, thereby endangering the hack-free environment of both games.
With two companies signing licensing agreements with Aventurine Studios, the original developers of Darkfall, many of our readers have wanted to see how it is the two new versions compare side-by-side. We spoke with representatives of Darkfall: New Dawn and Darkfall: Rise of Agon to find out more about each one's vision and what we can expect going forward.
This past week Ub3rgames has been successful in finalizing a contract for the rights to DarkFall. This hardcore MMO has been a fan favorite on the site for years. So, we thought to chat with Marc Thompson from Ub3rgames about some of the upcoming changes and features we will see. DarkFall New Dawn is set to re-launch the game and bring back some of the old school fun of the original. There are a lot of updates the team is working on as well. Let's hear what Marc had to say.
Ub3rgames has announced the final negotiations have been completed with Aventurine and that the company has secured licensing for Darkfall Online. Ub3rgames is currently at work on its iteration of the game called Darkfall: New Dawn.
Big Picture Games has announced that it is now accepting sign ups for the initial round of alpha testing of Darkfall: Rise of Agon, a reboot of the original game. While no date has been set yet, devs say that the first round will include 500 players with new groups added with subsequent waves.
