imageCamelot Unchained Releases their First Newsletter of 2021 - Talks Realms and Races | MMORPG.com

In the latest newsletter from Camelot Unchained developer City State Entertainment, a lot of topics were covered, including a breakdown of information released on the livestream earlier that day. In the newsletter, the art team dove into zones and biomes and the new State of the Build talks about the game as it stands now, and what players can expect from this weekend's test of The Verdant Forest 0.1.

    Good thing he told me because i thought with 26 classes they would have 26 different rigging models and with a male and female side making for 52 different models ...lmao.
    There is like maybe 1-3.

    This team has been trying to show us NOTHING that makes a great design,IDC about some item or some faces/races not going any places.

    I need to see DEEP hardcore game design and i will know in the very first 5 minutes if the game is serious or not.
    DO i blame them,well 50/50,i know everyone in this world is just trying to earn a living,to pay the bills but at the same time,your trying to fool people,deceive them into spending money on your product.
    The gaming market is like a used car lot,the dealer knows the cars he's selling are lemons but he has to play the game,he must sell his product at all costs.

    isn't the idea of a newsletter a meme now ? Like what's the difference from e-mail blasts and a newsletter ? Seems like a lot of effort to come up with things other then a game ...
    How long did this "newletter" idea take, was it a 5 hour team brainstorm meeting to come up with a "newsletter"....

    "Great idea , newsletter, that should give us another 2 years.."

    I'm going to say it, their graphic engine will not be able to make that model in the concept art. If anyone's been paying attention to "concept" and "reality" it is almost a decade apart.

    I don't think I have ever seen a game so long in development with zero actual results... What am I missing here?

    It's just what we do here, especially for truly incompetent dev efforts, which this one clearly is.

    Original promised delivery date...2015

    Yet 5 years later and they are showing off their concept art.

    Time to add more to the pile

    Less concept art

    More game




    They are releasing pictures, because they have nothing else going on, not a game to begin with.

    I think the same situation is with Pantheon - each time I see news about it on some MMO news website, sometimes there is a video livestream and it's just a couple hours of two talking heads, they don't even show a single picture, just yapping away about some boring crap that nobody cares about.

    They are still putting out something, at least they are not planning to do some concept art. So is this worthy of an article on here? Just about, but we really need to see an in game footage picture of something. How many concept art items a year are acceptable, well that depends on how many game footage releases they do. Other posters can correct me but I don't think we are seeing many of those?

    To think that I've waited for this game longer than I waited for Darkfall Online. Jeez. It's tragic. But I do hope that they will deliver what they've promised.

    I'm claiming my Kickstarter as a "donation" since there's never going to be a real game. At least I've kept some folks off the street.

    That's simply not true regarding Pantheon. Here is a 2 hour video of them actually playing the game as a group of five, and this is not the only video they have posted featuring gameplay.

    Sure you can't get a refund? They refunded my Hero Forever-pledge 5 years ago or so.

    more like the pattern of events. A pattern that continues to stretch out the time for deliverables to backers.

    The reality : Project launches APRIL 2, 2013

    Today's Date : January 31. 2021

    And just now, the newsletter ?

    Good thing, since the refund process continues at a glacial pace, last evidence was Mark was only up to the third week of Feb so there's a real chance some requests will hit the one year point soon.

    As noted, Mark is way behind on processing refund requests put in almost a year ago, no telling how long a new request put in today might take.

    Yeah, but who exactly is "playing" in the video, Developers right?

    Most of their videos are dungeon crawls with little evidence of open world content.

    Don't forget, they recently admitted to resetting development a year or so back so most videos previously shared are of a world which is mostly back at gray box level.

    Don't assume their recent dog and pony show created to lure in new investors is anything more than a marketing gimmick, they really don't have much in the way of playable content and are way behind CU in terms of progress which isn't saying much of course.

    Yep, there have been reports of people waiting more than 300 days for their refunds to be processed.

    Okay....I will post this one from 10 days ago then lol. I am not here to debate the state of the game, when it will release, or all that. Just pointing out it is simply not true that they don't post gameplay. And this is 100% more gameplay than we see from CU...which is in "beta". Pantheon is still pre-alpha.

    All of these kickstarters are shit. I bought into a few of them when the first craze was happening and not one has delivered.
