Darkfall: New Dawn
A game’s redemption
Release, after nearly 2 years of development
January 30 2018, French startup Ub3rgames just announced the successful launch of their MMORPG: Darkfall: New Dawn. It was a challenging release that happened on the previous weekend. Three days only after launch the server is holding strong despite player counts raising by the day.
Originally developed by Aventurine in 2009, Darkfall Online was one of the most highly anticipated MMORPG, first and only MMOFPS with large scale combat, full loot system, and no tab targeting. DFO left thousands of fans mourning when the server closed in 2012, putting the game to its end.
Since February 2016, the indie studio, who took over the old and beloved game, has been working on unleashing a new and improved version of the MMORPG, under the name Darkfall: New Dawn, targeting both the veterans and new gamers.
“We always wanted to share this historical moment with our community who supported us for two years, so we were, – and still are – here, on the battlefield 24/7.” said GM Paul, one of the developers and game masters.
The players were longing for two big features finally introduced in the last patch before launch:
- the local banking system – allowing for a player-driven economy.
- the title system – giving the user the ability to choose their own specialization in the forms of perks and skills, offering diversity in a classless game.
These two changes created a real difference and are an improvement over the original game.
“Darkfall had such high expectations during the lead up to its original launch, and we feel we can eventually make good on all the promises made back then while correcting the original’s flaws. We’ll start with one of the most unique conquest games out there, and as time goes on, increase its depth to satisfy all kind of players. Darkfall: New Dawn is about redemption.”said Ub3rgames CEO, Marc Thompson.
In an attempt to celebrate the launch, Ub3rgames released a surprise trailer for the players on the day before. The video published on Youtube outlines the differences between DND and the original Darkfall Online.
Born in 2015, Ub3rgames is a young French startup founded by talented developers who wanted to combine their passion of video games with their professional skills. They believe they can provide the best of both worlds and design outstanding games with players in mind. more info here
