Mythic preps Dark Age of Camelot gathering
Dark Age developer plans modern-day get-together in Vegas; early registrants to receive free copies of upcoming expansion pack.
After half a dozen expansion packs to its 2001 MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot and a slew of cross-country meet-ups, Mythic Entertainment is inviting all the game's players to descend upon Las Vegas again. On September 29 and 30, Mythic is hosting another meet-and-greet roundtable, and fans are welcome, the company said.
"I can't think of a better way to celebrate five years of Camelot and discuss the game's exciting future than with the players who helped make it all possible," said Walter Yarbrough, a Dark Age of Camelot producer at Mythic.
Mythic Entertainment, which was purchased by mega publisher Electronic Arts in late June, hosted two similar roundtables in 2005. Yarbrough said fans who make the trek to Sin City's Rio Hotel and Casino for the event--which runs $97.25 for one adult ticket--will also get the first look at the latest Dark Age of Camelot expansion pack.
"Our plans for the seventh major expansion demonstrate our continuing commitment to Dark Age of Camelot," he said. "Those in attendance will be amongst the first to experience this exciting new content."
Like last year, Mythic is promising extra incentives to those who register early--namely, a free copy of the new Dark Age of Camelot expansion pack after its release, beta access before it comes out, and "an exclusive in-game item."
