Everything is slower in old MMOs: the combat, the leveling, the gear acquisition ... and apparently the free-to-play transition, as well.

In late 2017, Broadsword Games announced that Dark Age of Camelot would be introducing a free-to-play option in 2018. The year came and went and then, last month, the F2P option was slated for a late October launch. Now, on Nov. 12, 2019, it looks like Endless Conquest is finally coming to the venerable MMORPG, which launched all the way back in 2001.

DAoC is currently down for maintenance, but when it comes back online, players will be able to jump into the game for free on the Ywain and Gaheris servers and have several expansions' worth of content to progress through. Check out the DAoC site for the official announcement, as well as a "new players page" that details everything you can and can't do.

Broadsword Games is also letting returning subscribed players into the mix for free, provided that they've been inactive for 180 or more days and are in good standing, though the page that's supposed to serve as a guide to those players is still blank as of this writing. You can read through them in the patch notes.

someone's playing this 3 polygon game?
I would've been much happier if Mythic and EA revived official version of Warhammer Age of Reckoning and finally added scavens instead of that trash game....but dream on Warhammer fans (Y_Y)
