Darkfall Online Open Beta on the 22nd
I kind of expected this as there was no open beta announced and there weren’t many official news updates, I had some hope for an open beta tomorrow the week before release, but that’s not going to happen. It would’ve been rather weird to see them actually releasing the game the 22nd without open beta, it would’ve been ever more weird and unreal to have them do it in a succesful manner.
So in a way, I’m happy. If they would’ve released the 22nd without beta, it would’ve looked like a scam to me. Now we’ll get to play it for a month in open beta (/trial) with many players, so we can see what we’re getting, although I don’t expect all that go flawless.
Reading their excuses it seems that they underestimated the interest of people in this game. Ah well, I think they could’ve seen it comming, it looks a bit amateurish to me.
