Darkfall: Unholy Warshas been a long time coming. Currently in closed beta testing, with a release date that is fast approaching, Aventurine S.A. has released a new dev diary in video form, detailing the newly revamped and exquisitely detailed world of Agon. They’ve gone through and redone the entire world, updating the graphics engine and retouching every area of the world to bring it new life. In his diary, Nick Kasolos discusses many of the changes, including a redesign of guild holdings to promote more conflict and competition between the guilds. I’m not surprised they are seeking more conflict, given the inspiration behind the name of their world. In ancient Greek, ἀγών, or Agon, is a contest or a struggle.
