Mark Jacobs Talks Camelot Unchained

Posted Wed, Feb 06, 2013 by Martuk

Mark Jacobs stirred up fans this week when he finally announced his intentions to develop a new MMORPG dubbed Camelot Unchained. This week Jacobs posted a new developer blog to discuss the world that the game will be set in and why it is not simply Dark Age of Camelot 2 with a different name.

Putting dragons into a game is hardly new. However, what if our world’s dragons were a mere reflection of what these beings are in their own reality? In addition, what if in their dimension their technology is what we call magic? Then, what if a cataclysmic event pierced the walls (Veil) and the power from that dimension flooded our world – a world with no magic, wizards, and dragons? Moreover, what if that power brought these legends and stories, dreams and nightmares, to life all at once? How would the world be changed? Would it even survive? This shattered world is the backdrop for what comes next.

Camelot Unchained will be a tri-realm RvR-focused game with an entirely player-owned and crafted economy. There will be no PvE, so don’t expect DAoC2 but rather a new title based around the mythos that Jacobs is so fond of.
