Mythic would like to remind everyone that they had an MMO before Warhammer Online, and if you’d like to come back and try it again you’ll get the two later expansions free of charge.
We don’t hear much about Dark Age of Camelot these days, and really haven’t heard all that much since the Labyrinth of the Minotaur expansion pack introduced a new race and the game’s largest dungeon. Now Mythic aims to remind the community that DAoC still functions, offering up Labyrinth and the previous expansion, Darkness Rising, free of charge to all players who haven’t secured them yet. Along with the free expansions comes a one-day reactivation of old accounts, allowing anyone who has been gone for more than 90 days to come back and play for free.
“The Dark Age of Camelot community has thrived for nearly a decade and the game has helped transform the MMO landscape with the introduction of groundbreaking Realm vs. Realm gameplay,” said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of Mythic Entertainment. “We could not be more excited to offer all this entertainment to all current players and to those interested in returning to the game, as well as to those looking to experience the game for the first time.”
Yes, along with the return promotion, new players can sign up for a 14-day trial to see what they’ve been missing all these years.
It’s been years since I’ve played Dark Age, but I have some really fond memories. Mainly cyber, but I swear I attacked a monster once or twice.
