With Dark Age of Camelot becoming the fastest selling MMORPG title ever released, selling in excess of 100,000 units in its first week and holding the top spot in the U.S charts for 3 weeks, GOA and Wanadoo are preparing for the European launch on 1st February 2002.
The first phase of the European Beta test commences on November 21st (hey! thats TODAY ed.) with 3000 pre selected English, French and German MMOPRG fans (who have registered via the website) and journalists taking part in testing the English language version (one of the three European servers). This test will continue through until December.

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
