Greece isn’t all civilisation-cradling armless statues and riots against brutal economic austerity measures, you know. It’s also the home of Aventurine, the developer who made Darkfall – a sandboxy, PvP-focused MMO that many found unapproachable, but a few found utterly compelling. It’s been out since 2009, and this is the next game in the “saga”: Unholy Wars. Two years in the making, and it’s nearly ready. Aventurine explain that the skill-based element is more important than ever before thanks to “An all new user interface, built for lightning fast combat, and unique amongst MMOs, connects you to magic or melee like never before. There is no tab-targeting -battles happen in real-time- blade and spell-fests where dice-rolls are replaced by your own cunning and guile.” Below there’s a video below in which the devs talk earnestly to camera about why they decided to make a new game, and what that means for Darkfall as a community.
Darkfall Unholy Wars is released on 20th of November.
