    I'm a little gobsmacked with there being even the mention of an NDA, this game was meant to have been released already, your getting instead a paid beta version, yet why on earth should anyone be asked to sign up to an NDA at this late stage, I'm sorry but if your being asked for such things shouldn't this be ringing alarm bells? as in hello the game may stay in beta for alot longer than is really being let on here.

    I want to be wrong, I bought the original and I'm going to hold off again for this new release so that I don't suffer from a heart attack at all the foreseeable cock-ups (just like last time minus the periodic release of copies to dl), the market needs a good solid game like this to make it this time around, I'm still amazed they have managed to keep afloat money wise to even do this in the first place.

    Great to have a beta that starts a weke after the game was scheduled to launch just a week ago... To take nearly 24 hours for it to download a 70 meg installer... and then to have the lobby/patcher crash before it ever downloads anything else. Welcome to Darkfall folks. Not sure why I expected anything different.

    So do you need to buy to get beta access?

    Yes. You need to preorder to get beta access.

    Go to forums.darkfallonline.com and look in the public section for a link that has the torrent and mirrors for the game.

    I downloaded the whole game using the torrents in ~2 hours.

    I guess i was one of the lucky ones i downloaded the client logged in and started downloading.. the only issue i had was that it was really slow, but i just left it over night.

    There was a patch yesterday and that also worked fine and was a lot faster.

     

    Just glad they let us pre-download the client instead of releasing it today. :)

    You need to make a new account at: https://ams.darkfallonline.com/AMS/

     

    Then after you made a new account, link your old Darkfall account to it in the account management page (subscriptions tab I think).

     

    Once you linked the account (remember to select the NA server checkbox for linking the old account), you can pre-order UW at the price of a subscription (€/$14,95).

     

    After pre-ordering, you have the option to reserve a character name, in the same tab you linked the old account.
