About Dark Age of CamelotÂ®
Dark Age of Camelot is a next generation massively-multiplayer online role-playing game ("MMORPG"), and features Realm vs. RealmTM combat, Mythic's unique take on Player vs. Player action, multiple class and race combinations, a robust trade skill system, and the most comprehensive player Guild system in any MMORPG. The world of Dark Age of Camelot features three Realms at war â€“ Midgard, Hibernia and Albion. Based on the mythologies of Viking-era Scandinavia, ancient Ireland, and Arthurian Britain, respectively, the once-peaceful Realms began to battle after the death of King Arthur. Players quest, fight monsters, form guilds and eventually gain enough power to defend their Realm from enemies. Since its release in October 2001, Dark Age of Camelot has received critical acclaim, including Online Game of the Year by Computer Games Magazine and Computer Gaming World, and PC Game of the Year by USA Today and MSNBC. Dark Age of Camelot continues to grow and expand worldwide and has proven to be an enduring success.
