Camelot Unchained: Mark Jacobs Announces Camelot Unchained

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 17,105MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Mark Jacobs and his City State Entertainment studio have announced that a new Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund the first game in what's being titled "Tri-Realm MMORPG". Tentatively titled "Camelot Unchained", the game will give players an opportunity to revisit the Arthurian legend reimagined in an MMO.

The core concept for the new MMORPG focuses tightly on three key elements, RvR, housing and a true player-owned economy. The central conflict encompasses a trio of diverse, competing realms - Arthurian, Tuatha Dé Danann and Viking - each seeking to assert its dominance over an open and persistent world reflecting the universally familiar but greatly re-imagined Camelot and European mythos. All aspects of this RvR-focused MMORPG are tied into and support the three realms' ongoing battle for superiority and control. The player housing and crafting systems will also be very significant components and both key closely into the RvR theme.

     Well the three factions are the same, just named differently  Arthurian = Albion   Tuatha = Hibernia  Viking = Midgard.  My fear here is that they do not create anything remotely like a DAOC 2 but rather just re-release something like the original DAOC with all the bits that MJ still owns thrown in.  Different name, new lick of paint and away you go.

    This could be interesting. With it being on Kickstarter we get to avoid publisher control and changes hopefully.

    Looks like it's going to be time for us DAOC fans to put our money where our mouth is. :)

    As an old DaoC Fart i have to say that this sounds just "to good" to be true.

    DAoC had a RvR focus as well, but it certainly had very significant PvE content too.  Other than shallow, play for 30 minute games like Planetside 2, you aren't going to find a real MMO that will do well without PvE content.

     I'll pass. We have TESO coming and I for one don't feel the need to play DAoC with a new coat of paint and all the problems of Trails of Atlantis still forced on us as part of the MJ vision.

    Except this game will come out in maybe 4 years. Pathfinder online anyone? estimated release 2017.

  • DaxamarDaxamar Green Cove Springs, FLPosts: 554Member
    2017 will also be a good year, then. :)

    Mark Jacobs said it best re: F2P vs Subscription! I really wish ALL game developers thought this way!

    What business model (i.e., free-to-play, buy to play, subscription) are you looking at for this game?

    Multi-tiered subscription with no free-to-play option but with (maybe) some cosmetic items for housing. I think F2P and buy-to-play have their places, but we are trying to create a very niche-oriented MMORPG that won't benefit from using those models. I'd rather have 30K people paying and playing monthly than hundreds of thousands playing for free and hope to convert 5%. This game is geared to doing one thing spectacularly, and that one thing is RvR. I believe there is a core group of players who have been waiting for this type of game, and our Kickstarter campaign will either prove or disprove this notion.


    What are your other Hobbies?

    Please take your time and do it right Mr. Jacobs. Remember why we loved DAOC back before Trials of Atlantis.

    Some of those being....

    RvR, No instanced Dungeons, No Gear Grind, Great Crafting, A live NON-INSTANCED world to explore, Darkness Falls, Multiple Classes to choose from (No Mirrored crap--Yes harder to balance but it was better), Real Dragons!


    What happens when you log off your characters????.....
