Darkfall Online release date announced
This just in:
Audio Visual Enterprises SA and Aventurine SA in a joint statement today announced that their highly anticipated MMORPG title Darkfall Online will launch across Europe on January 22nd, 2009. North American players are also welcome to participate in the European launch of Darkfall which will precede a North American launch. More details to be announced as they become available.Take that "highly anticipated" with a large grain of salt, the game *is* highly anticipated, but only by a rather small crowd. A much bigger crowd is extremely sceptical. But naming a precise release date at least seems to move Darkfall from my vaporware list. I wish them good luck, but I would be surprised if Darkfall came even anywhere near 100k subscribers. Hardcore PvP is a niche.
