Mythic Goes Digital With 'Dark Age of Camelot'

Mythic Entertainment today announced that in addition to their ongoing retail releases for Dark Age of Camelot, existing and future expansion packs will be available through digital distribution for the first time in the game’s history.

Players can now activate the critically acclaimed expansion pack, Catacombs, and pre-order the upcoming expansion, Darkness Rising, through a new in-game menu option. Once activated players can easily download and install the expansions to immediately experience the new features and content that each expansion brings to the game.

“For four years we have continually improved Dark Age of Camelot with both free and paid content to ensure that the game remains one of the industry leaders. We are excited to offer this new service to our subscribers providing them with almost immediate access to the latest major expansions for the ever-expanding world of Dark Age of Camelot,” says Mark Jacobs, President and CEO of Mythic Entertainment. “As always, we will continue to support our community with a mix of free and paid updates available both online and at retail.”

Catacombs and Darkness Rising are available for a $19.99 activation fee each. A bundle containing both expansions is available for $29.99, a $10 savings for subscribers. Former players returning to the game can re-activate their account, regain their original characters and choose to take advantage of the online availability of these new expansions. Darkness Rising is scheduled for download release this October and requires the original Dark Age of Camelot and Catacombs expansion to play. Darkness Rising will also be included, along with the original game and all expansions released to date, in the new Dark Age of Camelot: Epic Edition to be released at retail in October for $39.99.

For those who have yet to discover what has kept players coming back to Dark Age of Camelot for four years, a 14-day free trial version, which includes the original game as well as the Shrouded Isles, Foundations, and New Frontiers expansions, is available for download from
