Details about CCP's World of Darkness
are popping out of White Wolf's
The Grand Masquerade in New Orleans this weekend, and they're
definitely worth draining for every last sweet drop of... information.
While the game is still in pre-production -- and as such, nothing is set
in stone -- the devs weren't hesitant to dish out a lot of the ideas
and features that they hope will make this the best vampire MMO to date.
It's CCP's desire to emulate LARPing (live-action roleplaying) as much as possible with World of Darkness
with plenty of metaplots running inside the game and without. Players
will begin as a mortal human who can make the choice to become a kindred
(vampire) or stay mortal for the duration of their characters' lives.
There's a very real danger that characters might experience "final
death" -- permadeath -- if they take too many risks. If you get in over your head, you can retreat to your character's Haven for safety.
The entire game will take place at night and on one server, and CCP is
definitely aiming it toward the hardcore set. Nudity, gore, and insanity
effects are all par for the course.
If players push outside of the acceptable boundaries too often, they'll
lose "humanity" points and could become flagged for constant attack by
other players and NPCs. Play your cards right and you may become the
prince of the city. The game will change over time with dynamic events,
and CCP promises that there will be real consequences for player

interview with CCP coming later this week.
As a vampire-themed MMORPG, World of Darkness developed by EVE Online's producer CCP Games
will fill a deficiency in such themed games in the market. Recently, the developer has disclosed some details about the game.
The action MMORPG World of Darkness
is currently in
development, but will present more real battles. The game will offer two
factions: Humans and Vampires. Along with the progress of the game
storyline, players must choose either faction as they wish.
Games aims to make World of Darkness
into a 18+ MMO, players will experience excessive sex, blood and violence in the game.
According to the developer, the game has integrated an interesting
system. If players do much immoral things, they will lose humanity
points. When they have too few humanity points, they will be attacked by
NPCs or other players. On the contrary, if they do some righteous
things, their humanity points will increase and they may become the
defenders of the city. Additionally, the game will add a large number of
dynamic events and the whole gaming world will change in accordance
with the dynamic events.
At last, the developer expressed that the game would bring players
unprecedented experiences and more game info would be revealed with the
further development of World of Darkness
