The Dark & Light Steam page has been updated to inform the community that servers will be consolidated from 344 official servers to 100 when the consolidation process is complete. The merging process will be completed in two phases. The first round will take place near the end of January to close completely inactive servers. The other will take place in February to consolidate low-population servers so "each server has a healthy population".

    Just remember Snail Games that put together this game with the Ark base format owns Studio Wildcard that made Ark with a off set Studio that Made Atlas. I am not to surprise if things gets worst for this game before caning it then starting up something new to get easy money.

    Oh cool, the worst one of Snails three identical games is on the verge of shutting down. Who could ever have forseen this? However will we get by with just Ark and Atlas?

    Could have been a great fantasy version survival game.

    To be honest, I forgot this game was still around. Looks like I wasn't alone.

    I had one of the best survival game experiences playing Dark and Light, I hope the devs and publisher don't give up on it and actually fix all the issues and complete the game, one can dream.

    So, the ridiculously over-hyped, under developed, Asian cash grab game, that never lived up to a single promise, is unwell? . . . . . . .

    "Years have passed and I keep thinking, what a fool I've been
    I look back into the past and think of way back then
    I know that I lost everything I thought that I could win
    I guess I should have listened to my friends

    All the burning bridges that are falling after me
    All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
    Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
    Burning bridges lost forevermore”

    As far as I can tell a single server can hold up to 100 people - so capacity is reducing from 344,000 down to 100,000. And whilst 100k is not mega-millions its still a big number.

    Anyone know though though whether DnL has anything anything approaching that number? Or have servers felt dead since day 2 etc. and this is just a much needed consolidation?

    This was the game that when they tried to promote it showed very little of the combat. It was very elusive the combat videos.

    If only the original vision for Dark and Light had worked. Always felt bad for the pioneers who bought in way to early. Never understood why they kept the name but none of the design but this is right up there on the who cares meter.

    Why stop at 100?

    They've been averaging less than 500 concurrent players in last 60 days - since steam launch they've lost 90% playerbase

    Yeah, man, everyone should forget this garbage exists.  Forget that survival mess. 

    Let's go back 15 years to the game that actually got people interested in it.  That could have been a great fantasy game.

    Conan Exiles is still one of the only games of this type I really enjoyed, especially on a territory-conquest private server (Elysium). You couldn't raid without war declarations with a 1 hour notice and they broke the map into sectors you could conquest. Clans give a 24 hour notice of Conquest and everyone spends the day building and preparing.

    Once pulled an all nighter building a siege tower and we won in what basically was a building vs. building battle.
