Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of the critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game, "Dark Age of Camelot(R)," today announced that "Dark Age of Camelot: New Frontiers" has gone live. A free downloadable expansion for all current subscribers, "New Frontiers" reinvents the game's Realm versus Realm (RvR) combat system, Mythic's own unique take on player vs. player or PvP play. "New Frontiers" makes heroic battles accessible to subscribers of all levels and abilities, deepens the tactical options and strategies of battle, diversifies styles of warfare and establishes a new and expanded rewards system for Realm versus Realm combat.
"Dark Age of Camelot's" RvR system was recognized as a unique addition to the MMORPG genre by players and reviewers alike upon the game's original release in October 2001. Mythic continues to expand this unique system as part of its ongoing efforts to offer new challenges to the game's subscribers. During RvR combat, player characters from the game's three different Realms engage in life and death struggles across numerous battlegrounds, keeps, and throughout expansive frontier areas. In developing "New Frontiers," Mythic has taken the unusual step of focusing almost all of its resources on enhancing "Dark Age of Camelot's" RvR system as a free expansion instead of committing most resources to retail expansion development. By creating an expansion that increases the accessibility and broadens the appeal of RvR beyond its original design, Mythic continues to show its commitment to the game and its growing base of worldwide subscribers. As part of the foundation of the design of "New Frontiers," Mythic invited comments and feedback from the people that know the game best: the players of "Dark Age of Camelot" themselves. Frequent communication of design philosophy, goals, special features, and a long Open Beta program allowed Mythic to work closely with the community to create "New Frontiers."
