Sensory Cues in Darkfall
There's no radar in Darkfall. There are no floating nametags over player's heads. You won't be able to see bleeps on the mini-map that will alert you to the presence of other players and monsters. You must rely on your senses and stay alert, rather than letting your user interface do it for you.
This opens the door to a number of very interesting and unique gameplay possibilities, which are supported by a number of sensory cues, some of which we discuss in our weekly RPG Vault feature.
