Exclusive: DAoC Battles On! -

Our own Dana Massey recently returned from a trip to the headquarters of Mythic Entertainment where a special press event was held to show off Imperator and new features in Dark Age of Camelot.  He has put together a great report on what is new in the realms.  This feature contains many before and after screenshots as well as a free video download showing the new tower razing!  A preview is below:

Last week in Fairfax, Virginia, Mythic Entertainment held a press gathering to show off Imperator Online and the improvements to their crown jewel Dark Age of Camelot. Camelot is several years old and has survived several onslaughts of new games to retain its place among the most popular online RPGs in not just North America, but also the world. In fact, not until the release of World of Warcraft did Dark Age of Camelot lose its foothold as the pinnacle of MMOs in Europe. Now, with thousands of new players who have entered the MMO arena with the massive success of WoW, DAoC seeks to cash in on the influx of new players and grab a few for themselves.

Over the past few years, Mythic has consistently been the most generous MMORPG company. For your monthly fee, they often provide free content in the form of downloadable expansion packs. This has earned them a lot of good press and made the various retail expansion packs a lot easier to justify when they have provided so much other content that they could easily have sold free of charge. Now they are taking this a step further, albeit less glamorously. This year Dark Age is moving away from free expansion bundles towards highly focused patches. Not only will they continue to address balance and bugs in their periodic patches, but each one will also have a very tight content focus. On Tuesday, a brand new low-level experience, as well as improvements to realm vs. realm combat will accompany the usual round of fixes. Beyond that, guilds are at the top of the list and it will not step there. The Executive Producer for Dark Age of Camelot Jeff Hickman and Content Lead Destin Bales mentioned that they have many content goals planned out over the next long while; although they would not yet share plans for other improvements.
