Dark Age of Camelot: Catacombs

Dark Age of Camelot maker unveils new MMO Camelot Unchained, which sounds very similar indeed

Camelot Unchained is a sequel to Dark Age of Camelot in all but name - and even that's quite close.

It's being made by City State Entertainment and the project is led by Mark Jacobs, one of the founders of Mythic Entertainment and one of the leaders of the Dark Age of Camelot MMO project.

Camelot Unchained features three factions/realms fighting each other: an Arthurian English realm, an Irish Tuatha Dé Danann realm and a Viking Scandinavian realm. That's almost exactly the same as Dark Age of Camelot, which was split into Albion (Arthurian mythology), Hibernia (Irish mythology) and Midgard (Norse mythology).
