PostSubject: World of Darkness Online(from makers of EVE online)   Wed Jan 13, 2010 1:08 am


Horror hasn't been a widely explored genre in massively multiplayer online
games thus far, but there seems to be a shift in focus in the industry
away from fantasy titles.

Darren over at The Common Sense Gamer came across an interesting bit of information regarding World of Darkness -- the next massively multiplayer online game from CCP Games, creators of EVE Online.

Horror fans eager to find details about the upcoming title turned up a
business document (dated July 2008) from CCP Games that states World of Darkness is scheduled to launch in 2010.

Darren also makes a good point in his post -- there are a number of people who like the idea of EVE, but haven't been able to get immersed in the game. Given that the World of Darkness setting already has earned quite a number of
RPG fans over the years, it seems the title is in a position to have a
decent-sized following right off the bat. Or, at the very least, is likely to garner a number of people willing to try it out.
CCP Games apparently feels the same way, as stated in the Registration Document: "Given the World of Darkness legacy, its large fan base, and proven appeal to both genders, we estimate the subscriber potential of this product to be two to three times that of EVE Online, without competing head on with CCP's existing products thus enabling wider total appeal."

In terms of this 'wider total appeal', how do you feel about horror being
better-represented in massively multiplayer online games? If you're one of those gamers who likes some aspects of EVE but never made the jump into the game, does World of Darkness -- and its modern setting populated with vampires, werewolves, and mages -- hold more appeal for you?

well they keeping the details of the mmo a secret so not much is known about the game.

ppl are even speculating it could be fps mmo style instead of mmorpg style heh

if they going to be like counterstrike and go fps it will lose appeal to me,if they going to be normal mmo style then yeah it will be exciting to see what the makers of EVE online can do in a horror style mmo ^^
