Several sites began reporting about the closure of Mythic Entertainment yesterday afternoon, and the development team for Dark Age of Camelot wasted no time in reassuring players that maintenance of both DAoC and Ultima Online will continue under the leadership of Broadsword Online. Statements from both Mythic and Broadsword are after the jump.
Dark Age of Camelot, the classic MMORPG released in late 2001 is inviting players back for a seven day Realm vs Realm romp. DAoC has sported a subscription of $14.99 a month since release, and the game still has a healthy two thousand player subscription count 13 years after its release. To encourage former players to come back and try their luck, the team is offering seven days of free game time to anyone who has been inactive for more than 60 days. You can head to the account center to redeem your free game time and return to the realms today!
Talad Saad, Producer of Dark Age of Camelot, published an article on the official site introducing a new studio that was created to continue the development of DAoC.
Mythic Entertainment co-founder Rob Denton and a number of Mythic veterans (including two members of Camelot’s original team!) have formed a new game studio - Broadsword Online Games!
Broadsword Online Games will partner with EA’s Mythic Entertainment to operate, support and develop Dark Age of Camelot on EA’s behalf. Electronic Arts will continue to provide billing and account services through its Origin™ portal. Broadsword and Electronic Arts will work closely together to ensure a bright future for Dark Age of Camelot. For future inquiries and support, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can read the full notice on the official website.

Halloween is just around the corner and the spookiest month of the year has brought a wide variety of events to our favorite games. Join us as we explore the details of these frightening events.
On October 10, 2013 Mythic Entertainment celebrated the 12th anniversary of their realm versus realm MMO, Dark Age of Camelot. The producers and developers of the game recently took a look back on their history, filled with unique stories ranging from the game's early beginnings all the way through launch day. In the retrospective Mythic co-founder Rob Denton shared one of many intriguing facts, "DAOC was originally 'Darkness Falls 3D' - a three realm, PvP game based on the Darkness Falls text based MUD. Mark Jacobs, Mythic's President, developed the wonderful idea to use the popular myths around Arthurian, Norse and Celtic themes as the base story."
