Darkfall: Rise of Agon Closed Beta

Darkfall: Rise of Agon Closed BetaThe Darkfall: Rise of Agon closed beta is underway and is freely available to try until August 22, so help test out this new gritty Darkfall MMORPG!

OK, here is another new post casualty of my ongoing house move. Apparently, the Darkfall: Rise of Agon closed beta fired up a couple of weeks ago and I didn’t realize it. Thanks to Thomas E. for pointing out my ignorance on this bit of testing news.

Admittedly, I haven’t really followed the rise and fall and new rise of the Darkfall games. From what I understand, there are two different Darkfall games now under development that are both hoping to carry on the Darkfall torch. Rise of Agon from Big Picture Games is one of those, and this move into closed beta brings it one step closed to reality. Like the original Darkfall, Rise of Agon does not sound to be for the faint of heart. You can expect the same gritty open world and full loot PvP that Darkfall is famous for. It is worth watching the Darkfall: Rise of Agon beta patch video below to get an idea of what is happening in the game’s development.

OK, now for the critical news regarding the Darkfall: Rise of Agon closed beta. There is a free trial period for the closed beta that was just extended until August 22, and so the beta is freely available for everyone to jump in until then. After that it becomes a true closed beta and the only way in will be to pick up a Founder’s Pack. Enjoy!

One thought on “Darkfall: Rise of Agon Closed Beta

  1. I played a little of them, read over their changes and I don’t think either is really going to fix the retention problem the oriignal had. Regardless, Darkfall: New Dawn seem to be the front runners with their approach of build specialization. Seems a little unfair that you missed out their free access period, lol.
