You can engage in vicious fantasy PvP in the sequel to the old 2009 MMO very soon.
We've seen a few stumbles from new MMOs in recent years, from the high and mighty like EA's The Old Republic to Darkfall Online from the Greek developer Aventurine. The PVP-focused Darkfall wasn't terrible, but the developers decided to fix a lot of the underlying issues with the game not with a patch or an expansion, but with a wholly different game client called Darkfall: Unholy Wars. Originally announced to be released in November 2012, Unholy Wars received vigorous beta testing and multiple updates based on player feedback. The hard work has paid off - today, the team announced the full game will be released on April 16th.
"We addressed many issues through 8 major updates, did a lot of work on game balance and game polish, increased game performance on all levels, added new features like salvaging, changed the way character progression works," the announcement on the official website read.
The team expressed gratitude for the community's patience and help in identifying bugs and problems with the design. "The Darkfall community who participated in the beta provided the development team with invaluable feedback a lot of which led to additions and changes to the game, and will lead to many more in the near future. We believe the game has benefited greatly through the Beta process, and we are excited about what lies ahead."
