In this weeks TWIMMO, we talk vampires as CCP promises to show a bit of the World of Darkness MMO at Fanfest, our own Gary Gannon interviewed Mark Jacobs about Camelot Unchained, and Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes is laid to rest.
Ever since CCP acquired White Wolf, the creators of the popular tabletop and live action roleplay IP World of Darkness, fans of the IP have been waiting to get their hands on an MMO featuring it. So, when CCP announced a World of Darkness MMO, there was quite a bit of excitement.
Of course, the excitement was squashed a bit when CCP announced layoffs — which mostly hit their Atlanta offices and — we assume — their WoD team. But fans still have hope, so CCP’s recent announcement that they’ll be showing off a portion of the World of Darkness MMO at this year’s Fanfest and that the team has been playing the game internally should be pretty exciting for them.
Mark Jacobs’ new game is intentionally not for everyone.
If you’re hoping Camelot Unchained will be the next World of Warcraft, keep hoping. Jacobs has no intention of creating a game for the masses. Gary Gannon interviewed Mark for the first episode of GAMEBREAKER’s interview show and had him explain his philosophy behind the game as well as some of the things players can expect to see in it.
Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes shuts down.
