Frontiers Enters Beta2 - Dark Age of Camelot - MMORPG.com

Mythic Entertainment has issued the following press release about their latest free expansion "New Frontiers" which has just entered its second stage of beta testing:

FAIRFAX, VA - April 21, 2004 - Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of the award-winning massively multiplayer online role-playing game "Dark Age of Camelot," today announced that "Dark Age of Camelot: New Frontiers" has entered Beta 2 stage.

"New Frontiers" is a free downloadable expansion that reinvents the game's unique Realm vs. Realm (RvR) combat system. Player characters from the game's three Realms will wage war across new battlegrounds, battle to control new keeps and fight to control expansive new frontier areas.

More than 500 players will be play-testing the new RvR zones, abilities and strategies by the end of the week. This limited beta, available by invitation only, is estimated to last two weeks and it will be followed by a larger, open Beta 3. Mythic plans to make "New Frontiers" available to all subscribers in Summer 2004.

"Player testing of 'New Frontiers' is now underway," said Matt Firor, Executive Producer and Vice President of Development at Mythic Entertainment. "RvR has always been a key feature of 'Dark Age of Camelot.' We consider the feedback we receive from this beta critical to development, as 'New Frontiers' involves significant changes and balancing the game systems our players are familiar with. Our goal is to make Camelot?s RvR system even more accessible, fun and compelling for all players."

"New Frontiers" features revamped geography for each Realm's frontiers as well as updated siege warfare, completely redesigned upgradeable keeps, a Realm War status map, and much more. New travelling systems enable users to get to the action faster with boat service between the frontiers and the ability to teleport directly to a friendly keep. The expansion also overhauls the game's Realm Ability system to further balance character classes.
