Darkfall Online Reaches Beta!

Updated Wed, Sep 03, 2008 by Morvelaira

The spiritual successor to Ultima Online

Darkfall Online, from Greek developer Aventurine, has launched into its beta stages. Claiming to be the spiritual successor to Ultima Online, character development features no levels, and an entirely skill-based system.

Also similar to Ultima is the relative lack of rules; players can kill other players anywhere in the apparently vast and seamless world of Agon - including towns and cities. Good and evil paths will be walked-down depending on deeds done, but become too nasty and NPC guards will attack you on site in the more built-up areas of the world.

And if you should die, your body will drop to the floor with all your equipment and belongings on, ripe for looting presumably by the killer or any cheeky thief within distance.
