BillMurphyBillMurphy Managing EditorBerea, OHPosts: 2,356MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Though folks were beginning to worry, it seems the downloads for Darkfall: Unholy Wars' beta have begun.  Pre-order customers can click through to the official forums and get to downloading now.

You can download the beta HERE, this gives you the lobby, and after you log in, you can continue downloading the game. 



If there is any further information on the download and installation, we'll post it in this thread. 



We've also been monitoring your feedback and questions in general and we'll come back with more information as needed.

For more info head over to Darkfall's forums. The beta itself is due to begin Monday, December 17th.

    Thanks for the news.

    All the people are trying to get it right now, so (like with any other launch) it is quite crowded/laggy right now. ;)

    lol!  

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Check the darkfall forums.  There is a player made mirror download link that is quick.  Took me five mins to get the lobby and I am patching now.

     

    Here is the forum subject line for the mirror:

    It is still being hammered. Check the forums later today (sunday) for a full torrent or alternative mirrors. Currently there are only partial torrents, because only a hand full of people downloaded the full client so far...

    We had huge battles with hundreds of players fighting each other at a decent ping in DF1.

    I didnt got that in warhammer online, lotro or gw2. Non of these games even gave the possibility to have a siege fight with 500 vs 500 or anything near tsuch numbers.

     

    So dont be so quick with your "lol epic fail *derp*"

    Considering using the torrents, slow using the launcher... although I guess i can't say i've ever been in a beta where it's been fast/smooth :)

    I can only assume that you're new to this MMO business? :)

     

    Let me enlighten you, I'll mention a few MMO releases that had a slow dl at release of live/beta client: WoW (BC, WOTLK, CATA, MOP), Warhammer Online OBT/CBT, Age of Conan CBT/OBT/Release, TERA OBT/Release, Rift release, GW2 CBT/Release... (The list goes on)

     

    Catch my drift? Who am I kidding, of course you don't, you're a troll afterall. ;)

    The latest update can be read here: http://forums.darkfallonline.com/showthread.php?t=337780

     

    In short, official torrent for the client, there will be a short NDA (as if that means anything...), and bugs related to item persistence might cause a delay in the beta starting, however they claim to be on track for tomorrow's beta.
