Darkfall has fallen on North America
I’m still befallen with a terrible cold/sinus infection, but I wanted to make a quick update before the NyQuil kicks in. I’ve been just lounging on the couch all day trying to feel better, missing all of the big Darkfall Online and Mortal Online happenings today. On that topic, I would go out on a limb and say it is definitely not a coincidence that they both had big “launches” of sorts today. I guess they are going after different audiences, with Darkfall‘s launch being a North American retail launch and Mortal Online‘s pre-order/beta being admittedly for the European audience, but it’s kind of ironic that two “hardcore pvp sandbox” MMORPGs have sales going live today in some fashion.
Sales are also open. The download instructions for Darkfall’s US version can be found here:

See you all in game!
The Darkfall Team
I’m definitely tempted. I’ll give it more potential thought once my cold passes and I have a some free time to spare later this week. If you are looking for something different in your MMORPG menu, you should seriously consider giving Darkfall a chance. Just try to look past some of the rough edges and you may find the difference you are looking for.
As for Mortal Online, it’s pre-order store has opened with the “Special Edition” going for ~$100 (EUR 71.95) already sold out, and the normal boxed edition going for a whopping $~77 (EUR 54.95). These prices are outrageous to me and have saved me from myself essentially, as I’m not willing to pay that much on, in what my opinion, is such a risky investment and purchase. If you live in the US and are willing to dish out ~$77, there appears to still be some available from the initial lot of them. Have at it.
