Vampire MMORPG DarkEden Enters Closed Beta

Posted Tue, Nov 08, 2011 by Martuk

World of Darkness is moving along at a slower pace than some fans had hoped, but Ignited Games has an alternative solution for vampire fans that have been looking for an MMOG world to sink their fangs into. Today the developer reintroduced fans to what it’s calling “the world’s first massively multiplayer online vampire role-playing game (MMOVRPG)” with DarkEden.

DarkEden is set in the fictional eastern European country of Eslania and will allow players to choose between three races – vampires, human slayers and beastly ousters. Each race has a distinctive gameplay progression mechanic such as a vampire’s need to drink blood to gain experience points. DarkEden also boasts to be a throwback to the golden age of MMORPGs with classic hack-and-slash action and 2D visuals.

DarkEden ceased services earlier this year but now returns under Ignited Games. Fans can register for the DarkEden closed beta and “Like” the game’s Facebook page to become eligible for a variety of prizes and giveaways.

I agree with you that the game is amazing for a 2D environment online game. And DarkEden is the first vampire vs. slayer themed online game. I read a lot of articles and game news about it. I wanna try this game once they release it.

Its an interesting game. Even its an old game, it can compete with the other 2D online games. It has a potential if the predecessor handle it seriously and cautiously. Im looking forward to see this game rule the gaming world. hahaha

No, not oyster race-- though that would be cool.

Joymax announced a third race for its horror-themed MMOG today: the half-human half-vamp Ousters.
