Camelot,” today released three short movies from “Catacombs,” the game’s upcoming expansion.

About “Dark Age of Camelot: Catacombs”
“Catacombs” is the third retail expansion pack for “Dark Age of Camelot.” It features a vast new underground environment of friendly cities and dangerous dark dungeons. Many of the new adventuring areas are “instanced’ and can be explored privately by single groups and solo players. Five new player classes make their debut in "Catacombs" - the Heretic in Albion; the Warlock and Valkyrie in Midgard; and the Vampiir and Bainshee in Hibernia.
The first new addition a player will notice in “Catacombs” will undoubtedly be the major art upgrade to player character models. This all-new set of player character models includes features such as detailed facial features and morphs, hairstyles, skin tones, and more stunning looks for armors and clothing. This upgrade applies to all character models, not just the new player classes.
“Catacombs” is aimed at players of all levels and experience. Content will be provided for characters of the lowest levels up through the most experienced.
