Camelot Unchained (working title) is an upcoming fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game from City State Entertainment which was partially funded through Kickstarter. Involved in its production is Mark Jacobs the former designer of Dark Age of Camelot. Its crowd funding campaign raised $2,232,933 through Kickstarter, with Jacobs promising to contribute an additional $2 million from his own assets, as well as an additional $1 million from investors pending completion of a successful Kickstarter campaign which occurred on May 2, 2013.
Camelot Unchained is considered to be a spiritual successor to Mark Jacobs’ prior game Dark Age of Camelot and will prominently feature a PvP-centric design which Jacobs now calls “Tri-Realm”. Also like DAoC, the game will borrow from Arthurian legend while adding new and original elements to it. The game is planned to have large scale PvP battles as a primary focus to its gameplay. Jacobs denies considering the game a spiritual successor to DAoC although stating he could have legally done so had he chosen to.
On December 23 2012, Mark Jacobs with City State Entertainment released the first teaser for the game which hinted at the premise a three faction PvP game, It was later confirmed in a subsequent interview that Jacobs was planning a RvR game similar to his prior game Dark Age of Camelot and that instead of building another “themepark-style MMO”, he would focus on a more niche PvP game.
