[Massively] Mark Jacobs announces Camelot Unchained(unofficial DAoC 2)

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter

It was no coincidence that Mark Jacobs was open to talking about his Warhammer Online experiences with us recently. If you deduced that it was the prelude to his MMO comeback attempt, you were right.

Jacobs' City State Entertainment announced today that it's working on a new MMO under the working title of Camelot Unchained. And yes, it will be RvR-focused with three realms duking it out: Arthurian, Tuatha Dé Danann, and Viking. Camelot Unchained will tie RvR conflict into player housing and a dynamic economy as well.

Because this tightly focused concept may prove to be too difficult to draw publisher support, the 13-person studio is turning to a future Kickstarter campaign for support. Obviously, we have no shortages of questions about this project, but we contained ourselves to the 10 most burning queries that we presented to Jacobs. Read about the future of Camelot after the jump!

Please EA let this happen. I loved Pre ToA so so so so so so so much.


I played Freeshards DAoC:Dracis for a long time too.

DAoC was one of the best MMOs. The RvR was epic.

OMG do want. DAoC was the best MMO and still is to-date imo.

Bring it on!!

I'm totes backing this on Kickstarter.

Mark Jacobs was a part of Warhammer Online. His vision did not succeed there. We shall see.
post #6 of 44
For it to be successful, Kickstarter won't cut it. Mark is going to need dudes with suitcases full of dough to do this project correctly. I do predict however that Perfect World will be just "the dudes". I just wish they had some demos or concepts up to share.

I miss DAoC quite a bit but I don't know how successful a kickstarter campaign is going to be for a niche MMO that needs $5 million to launch and only has 13 devs. I wonder if they saw the kickstarter success of Project Eternity and are hoping to piggyback on that kind of gaming nostalgia. In any case, it worked on me. I'll be contributing.
