City State Entertainment are making a new MMORPG called Camelot Unchained.
CSE is headed up by Mark Jacobs from Mythic Entertainment and and Andrew Meggs also from Mythic but most recently worked on Skyrim.
Mythic Entertainment made an MMO called Dark Age of Camelot, it was in its prime around 10 years ago, and ever since I've been looking for something that came close to the excitement I felt playing this game. Nothing has compared.
The best part of Dark Age of Camelot was the Realm vs Realm pvp. It pitted 3 warring factions against each other in medival battle for supremacy. Tri-realm combat has never been successfully reproduced since DAoC until possibly now.
Camelot Unchained (working title) is based on 3 pillars of gameply. RvR Tri-realm combat, Crafting and player housing. There will be no leveling from killing NPC's. (you still kill NPC's for crafting/building mats etc) All exp is gained by killing other players.
It would be really awesome to get a kiwi/aussie community going in this game so I have people to play with that play in my peak times!
They are trying to make this game without having to use the backing of a major publisher so that they do not have restrictions put on them and are trying to raise $2million via Kickstarter. Depending on the amount pledged you receive in-game or physical rewards. I.e alpha/beta access among other things. If the 2mil is raised Mark Jacobs is going to put 2mil of his own money into the game along with another 1million he has secured in backing for the project.
I don't explain it well enough but if you are interested you can get more information at the following links.
