DAoC and Ultima Online Available On Steam Greenlight


Dark Age of Camelot and Ultima Online are looking to gain more players through Steam Greenlight.

How many folks out there remember playing these games? I’m sure many look back with nostalgia at Dark Age of Camelot and Ultima Online. Both, for their time, were great games. They were created when the massively-multiplayer market was just taking off and Everquest was the World of Warcraft of its time. Broadsword Games, presumably, is trying to re-establish these titles in the modern marketplace by introducing them in Steam through the Greenlight process. By doing so, they have a chance of gaining new subscribers that would otherwise not know the games still exist.

But before you get too excited, there’s a catch. A subscription fee is required to play both games. While they do not mention how much this fee is on their Greenlight pages, a quick search reveals that they’re expecting you to spend $14.95/month to play them. Each. That’s a pretty big catch when, for that $15/month you can play more modern titles such as World of Warcraft, or the recently released Elder Scrolls Online. Though, remarkably, despite their respective ages they still have relatively strong communities of players and have a good shot at making it through the Greenlight process.

Are you looking forward to playing these titles? Cast your vote for Dark Age of Camelot and/or Ultima Online and help approve them for the masses.

These games still have solid followings because their not mindless theme parks. If they did a DAOC 2 with modern graphics and some newer UI conveniences but minimal watering down, it would do very well. That’s the sort of thing FFXI fans were waiting on, but we all know how FFXIV turned out.

I would play again for $5 per month… but $15 is to much.
