Last week Aventurine held a press event in Athens (Greece, not Georgia, in case you’re a B-52s fan) to promote their “coming in 2008” MMORPG, Darkfall, about which I have posted previously. (In case you need a refresher course.)
The team at the fan site Darkfall World has put up a video taken at the event that includes a live demo of some of the game play mechanics.
The video certainly shows better graphics than the highly compressed game play videos that Aventurine posted back in August.
You can find the video taken at the event, plus a video of local news coverage (sub-titled) here.
The news coverage clip, in the typical main-stream media fashion, needed to find a link to the game we could all understand, so declared it “based on The Lord of the Rings.”
The target release for the game is still 2008.
