The second phase will run through December till the official European launch and will see the French and German language servers brought into the testing, allowing for all servers to be tested simultaneously. This final test phase will be open for all players prior to commercial release.
Dark Age of Camelot takes place after the death of King Arthur, and breaks new ground for online play with three realms in conflict - realms that used to be peaceful and united under Arthur's rule. The players assume a character from one of the three realms: Midgard, Hibernia, or Albion. Each realm is based on the mythologies of Viking-era Scandinavia, ancient Ireland, and Arthurian Britain, respectively. While retaining and enhancing the traditional appeal of MMORPGs (monsters, treasure, and community), Dark Age of Camelot adds the additional challenges of protecting the player's realm's powerful relics and to raid enemy territories to steal their relics and bring them home. Dark Age of Camelot is a next generation MMORPG and features 3D-accelerated graphics with movable camera, multiple class and race combinations, Player vs. Player
and Player vs. Environment action, a robust trade skill system, and one of most comprehensive player Guild systems in any MMORPG.
Dark Age of Camelot will be exclusively distributed in the UK by KOCH Media
