Vampire MMORPG DarkEden Enters Closed Beta

Ignited Games resurrects DarkEden, a vampire MMOG that rises again for players to sink their fangs into.

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.
