Dark and Light opens up

MMO now yours to explore.

Farlan Entertainment has announced the launch of Dark and Light, officially billed as "The Largest MMORPG You've Ever Seen."

Well, it is 40,000 square kilometres in size, and there are 13 different kingdoms to wander around. You can get about using your very own dragon, glider or parachute, all without having to deal with any pesky loading times. There are lots of cities to visit, loads of fortresses to explore and probably a huge amount of wizards and that, since it's all wrapped up in a fantasy setting.

There's a subscription fee of $14.99 per month - or you can opt to pay as you go. Those who registered for the advance Pioneer program will get some extra skills and privileges, plus two months of free play.

More details are available from the Dark and Light website.
