Just 4 days ago, City State Entertainment put up their KickStarter page for Camelot Unchained. (Source) I have noticed that the only thread pertaining to this was not updated and was merely just a "Hey look at this." Since Camelot Unchained has recently been backed by Obsidian Entertainment and the KickStarter page will hit the funding amount, it is seeming more and more likely that we'll see a beta in 2014.
You can ask Mark any question you have regarding CU and he will answer it!! GET ON THIS.
The following video talks about the game engine involved, which will be developed in house by someone (and others) very experienced with this sort of thing. The rest of videos posted here will be either from their website or as an update to what is going on.
Now, this game seems more along the lines of a 2015 launch which is quite far away. For those looking for a PvP driven game with the holy-trinity class system we all love and enjoy, CU (Camelot Unchained) is looking like a place to be.
There are some key things that will either attract or deter players:
-RvR based. Limited PvE, to the point of it being considered siege only.
-No easily obtainable 'great' gear. Nothing is handed to you. If its good- it will take plenty of time and effort. The sensation of it actually feeling like a reward. Completely player driven... gear does not drop.
-Extended version of the Holy-Trinity system (Healer, Tank, DPS) with a few additions such as Hybrid and Crafter.
-Crafting can play a LARGE part of the RvR experience if that is a role you want to play in it.
-Potential of Guild and Player Housing anywhere in the game world.
-No Auction House. Players can set up their own in attempts at selling to other players.
-Will be Subscription based, BUT expected to be cheaper than the current MMOs.
If you're looking for that DAoC experience from long ago with its own new twists, I think this is the game for us. There will be much more information released along the way, so please stay tuned or post something that hasn't been said!
