DAoC Expansion Announced
HomeLan Fed has posted word that a new Dark Age of Camelot expansion is in the works. Trials of Atlantis will take players through nine trials over land and under the sea to discover the secrets of Atlantis. No word yet on the absence or existence of sea horses.
Nice to see DAoC is still alive and cranking out the expansion packs. Between this one and the previous Shrouded Isles release I would almost be half tempted to log back into the world. Then again, I also have urges to leap when I stand on tall buildings so what do I know?
Trials of Atlantis is designed to further challenge high-level players by introducing a Master Level advancement system. As a player moves sequentially through each of the nine Trials, they will achieve a corresponding Master Level. Emphasizing group play, the Trials will have to be surmounted by groups of players journeying through the portal together. Players will be able to travel by boat, explore islands with ruins, swim to submerged dungeons and battle new creatures in underwater caves. Additionally, the expansion will add one new player race per Realm, dozens of new monsters to encounter, as well as new objects and treasures to uncover.
