A new developer diary has been published on the Darkfall: Unholy Wars site. Penned by game logic programmer Jon Massey, the diary goes into a lot of detail about the role of clans in the upcoming title. Additionally, the team acknowledges that the preorder deadline has passed and that there may yet be a preorder if it can be started on Monday.
One point to make before the developer diary: I know that I said in the MMORPG.com Q&A that pre-orders were to launch this week, and we really tried until a little while ago before having to accept defeat, a combination of things (most we could not control since there are 3 companies working on this) made it impossible. Obviously our main focus is on the actual game, but this was important as well, so it’s frustrating for us, as I’m sure it is for you. So will we still do a pre-order before launch at this late date? Perhaps if this can be done on Monday so we can break up the buying traffic before the launch day and make sure everything is working right, and give you the ability to reserve your character name beforehand. There will be people working on this over the weekend here, at the provider and at our billing processor’s, so we hope we’ll be able to have the option on Monday.
