Mythic Entertainment is now releasing a Gold Edition of its flagship product, Dark Age of Camelot, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Dark Age of Camelot: Gold Edition will include the original game, it's top-selling expansion Dark Age of Camelot: Shrouded Isles and the soon-to-be released housing expansion Dark Age of Camelot: Foundations. An all-new 45-page beginner guide compliments the updated manuals to introduce players to the world of MMORPG's and Dark Age of Camelot.

Shrouded Isles, extends the story of the original game and enhances the action of Dark Age of Camelot with new character classes, new races, and three new continents, displayed in an all- new graphics engine. Shrouded Isles also includes almost one hundred new monster models and nearly 400 hundred new weapon, armour, and shield graphics. The expansion features new quests, thousands of new monster encounters, and an innovative artificial intelligence system enabling monsters to behave and attack in deadly new ways.

The first of three expansions Mythic will be releasing in 2003, Dark Age of Camelot: Foundations, will give players the ability to purchase property and build their own homes. Players will first claim a housing lot and then buy a deed to one of several different types of houses. Houses and items are customized in appearance for use in each of the game's three Realms. Real estate in Dark Age of Camelot: Foundations will resemble actual life, with prices fluctuating according to location and market demand. Houses can be owned and maintained by either a single player or a Guild (group of players). Foundations is currently in beta and will be available to all subscribers free of charge in late June.

"We wanted to give new players a great new way to enter the world of Dark Age of Camelot," Mark Jacobs, CEO & President of Mythic Entertainment said." "The combination of Dark Age of Camelot, Shrouded Isles, Foundations and the new beginner's guide offers the perfect entry point to the game."
