Dark Age of Camelot News

  • It may be more of a twitch at this point but seriously.. they're still alive and well as far as we know. Celebrating it's 5th year live, Mythic gives out the details of the Fan Gathering in Las Vegas.

    Mythic Entertainment announced details for the 2006 Dark Age of Camelot Roundtable Fan Gathering in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Players from around the world are invited to join Mythic at the Rio Hotel and Casino on September 29th and 30th to celebrate 5 years of Dark Age of Camelot. Players who attend the event will meet the developers as well as fellow players of the game. They will also receive information on the future developments of the game. There are several events planned such as LAN play, open discussion forums with the development team, guest speakers, and contests.

    Players who register before August 25th will receive a beta account for the next expansion for Dark Age of Camelot along with a free copy of the expansion and an exclusive in-game item. Attendees can win prizes from sponsors such as NVIDIA and Razer along with several others.

    "I can’t think of a better way to celebrate five years of Camelot and discuss the game’s exciting future than with the players who helped make it all possible," said Walter Yarbrough, Producer of Dark Age of Camelot. "Our plans for the seventh major expansion demonstrate our continuing commitment to Dark Age of Camelot. Those in attendance will be amongst the first to experience this exciting new content and see for themselves why Camelot has never been better."

  • Las Vegas to enter the Dark Ages...

    The developer formerly known as Mythic Entertainment (and soon to be EA Mythic) has a late September Las Vegas soiree in the works for its die-hard Dark Age of Camelot fans. Early registrants get free copies of the next expansion for the 5 year old MMO.

    After half a dozen expansion packs to its 2001 MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot and a slew of cross-country meet-ups, Mythic Entertainment is inviting all the game's players to descend upon Las Vegas again. On September 29 and 30, Mythic is hosting another meet-and-greet roundtable, and fans are welcome, the company said.

    "I can't think of a better way to celebrate five years of Camelot and discuss the game's exciting future than with the players who helped make it all possible," said Walter Yarbrough, a Dark Age of Camelot producer at Mythic.

  • Light Shed on Questions

    Sanya Thomas sheds some light on current hot questions in the Dark Age of Camelot community. Yes, of course this means she touches on the EA/ Mythic deal and what it means for the future of the game...

    I surely do wish I had more information for everyone about the EA thing, but everything I know, I've put here on the Herald for you. Don't worry so much, y'all. Come to an event, either a road trip or the full-blown Vegas party - see us Mythic people in person if you don't believe a bunch of words on a web page. Besides, I enjoy the heck out of meeting fellow players. Even the guy with the binder, he's a handsome guy with a great hat ;)

  • Here's the weekly bucket of goodness for all of you DAOC fans out there. Mythic has released Pat 1.81e.

    Darkness Falls access change is the big news this edition. There's also a cool new recall stone system for those who own the Darkness Rising expansion. We may reevaluate that limit in the months to come, but for now it's like the advanced horses - a great reason to get Darkness Rising. Come for the recall stones and horses, stay for the quests and cake.

  • Because we all could use a little more "unspeakable evil"
    Mythic Entertainment simultaneously lifted the non-disclosure agreement for Dark Age of Camelot's latest expansion and announced that the expansion will go live October 11th, and there's no doubt it will be more fun than being ganked by a leprechaun in the frontier zones. Who isn't coming out with an expansion for late 2005? Oh, yea... World of Warcraft.

    " Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of massively-multiplayer online role-playing games, today announced that Darkness Rising™, the sixth expansion pack for the critically-acclaimed Dark Age of Camelot(R), has "gone gold" and will be available on October 11th.

    The expansion will be available as a stand alone product via Mythic's new integrated digital distribution system and as part of the upcoming Dark Age of Camelot: Epic Edition.

    Dark Age of Camelot subscribers can now pre-order Darkness Rising for $19.99 through a new in-game menu option. Anyone ordering before October 10th will receive an exclusive suit of armor for their new in-game mount. For more information about pre-ordering Darkness Rising, visit:"

  • Why is it always a "round" table?
    RPGVault has posted their coverage of the recent Dark Age of Camelot roundtable. Henry Winkler refused to answer any of our questions regarding the roundtable, but did mention the following:

    " The phrase "instant success after years of trying" has been applied to Mythic Entertainment and its flagship online world, Dark Age of Camelot. When the title was announced in February of 2000, many gamers, even those interested in the massively multiplayer category, were not acquainted with the company, this despite the fact its principals had years of experience in the sector and a veritable wealth of knowledge about it. In addition, it was pretty easy for anyone who looked at the project to see that it had substantial potential. While it wasn't built upon a prominent intellectual property, it used a setting drawn from a legend virtually everyone had heard of. As well, the play had a distinctive, well-established foundation, a proven three-way realm-based conflict system in which the elder game was designed to pit large groups against one another. "
