The first gameplay trailer for Darkfall Online, developed by Aventurin, has been released. The footage demonstrates why the game is considered a next-generation MMO while you get to view some of the features that make Darkfall usuch a highly anticipated title.
Darkfall has most of the features one would associate with fantasy based MMORPGs, but also contains elements found in real-time strategy and action games. In Darkfall it's the players and their actions that shape the world. The game provides the platform and the tools for the player to engage in activities such as kingdom building, politics, strategy, diplomacy, combat, warfare, conquest, and racial wars. The game also offers players the freedom and the option to not get involved in any of that if they don't want to, and to follow a path of their own.
