Our aim is to take Darkfall Online and make it reach its potential as a complete empire building game where sandbox features and PvP are just tools to an end. We are not making a simulation or a gankbox, but are striving for meaningful choices and long term appeal. At its core, Darkfall: New Dawn is about risks versus rewards and accepting the consequences of one’s choices. Whether in combat, diplomacy or day to day activities.
Darkfall: New Dawn, an empire building and conquest game
But in order to translate this goal into reality, we need to work from the root up.
Empires need citizen and a motivation to exist. This means that there needs to be content for a wide variety of players and a working economy to motivate wars.
Darkfall: New Dawn will need to be a great PvE game, it will need to be a great sandbox, it will need to have full loot PvP and be a harsh virtual world. All those will be means to an end rather than the purpose of the game.

Darkfall: New Dawn is all about meaningful choices and long term appeal.
We want you to keep interested and playing for years.
