"Darkness Rising" in DAoC's Future
Mythic Entertainment has released a realm-load of information on its upcoming expansion for Dark Age of Camelot: Darkness Rising. Apparently they're out to make something truly dark. Player-controlled mounts, subclassing, and the title of "Champion of the Realm" await loyal players? Will RvR action put on the back burner to make DAoC another FFXI clone? Film at 11.
"In Darkness Rising, an evil uprising threatens the land and the mightiest heroes in the Realms are called into service. For the first time in Dark Age of Camelot, players will be able to earn the right to be called a Champion of the Realm. Players become Champions by exploring new zones and revisiting altered lands while investigating the mysterious uprising to discover its sinister underpinnings. By performing this service for their Realm, players achieve new levels of advancement and gain the ability to wield class-specific Champion Weapons. Darkness Rising also introduces majestic player-controlled horses and other more fantastic steeds which can be ridden into conflict in the war between the Realms. "
