Tasos posted an update regarding the recent connection issues, the upcoming expansion, and beyond. From the tone of the update it sounds like things are finally picking back up and the final touches are being put on the long-delayed expansion, which will no doubt give the game a nice jolt and set things up for year-end and early 2011 updates.
I’ve personally been waiting for this upcoming expansion to get back into Darkfall, as I figure it will bring a large number of people back and create a good environment to get back into the swing of things. It sounds like in addition to the visual and audio updates, there should be a significant amount of PvE content to keep busy with between the PvP downtime. I must say I do miss playing an MMO, because as entertaining as League of Legends is, it does not scratch the same itch that Darkfall does, so it will be good to have that back into my gaming rotation.
With LoL, Civ V, and DF, I’ll be one happy gamer this Fall/Winter.
