What is Dogma: Eternal Night?
Dogma: Eternal Night is a game project being made by a team of enthusiasts, who want to create a new MMORPG with the atmosphere of modern gothic and horror. This new game will allow players to try on an image of vampires and other mythical creatures who live among the mortals. The development team was formed by roleplayers and gaming community members for the purpose of exercising their common dream.
The name of the project is a working title and might be changed before release.
What does the setting look like?
The Dogma: Eternal Night setting is an alternate reality based on ours. The same laws and regulations exist here, people still live in the cities and megalopolises with same names and geography. Familiar music plays in clubs and bars, politicians play their games by the same rules, the culture develops in the same way. There is the Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Kremlin. However, all of these are expressed differently, because nights in this world are darker, the crime and cruelty have no borders, vices are stronger and the decadence of society clearly presses on all of its inhabitants. There is horror behind each corner — inhabitants of night, the invisible predators and true governors of this world hiding from the eyes of people.
Who do I play as?
First, we will show the vampire side of the game. They will have their factions with different relations, opportunities and purposes.
Further, after release, we will create new game creatures and add them in individually. By the way, werewolves comes first. Also, we are planning to add humans, ghosts, witches, demons and so on… However, they are going to exist under their own laws that are different from vampires.
What engine powers Dogma: Eternal Night?
We work with the Unity 5 engine. Despite the disputable reputation of this technology from in game communities, Unity, in our opinion, possesses the most successful combination of a number of factors which have influenced our decision. Flexibility, an extensive community for developers and rather high opportunities of graphics. These three factors helped us make that decision. We believe in the near future, this technology will give higher graphical opportunities.
How many servers will be used?
There will be only one server that’ll handle tens of thousands players around the world.
Will there be PvP/PvE?
Yes, there will be free-roam, open world PvP and PvE. However, the main idea of the project is social interaction between players. That means you will be able to receive great power and influence within the game without committing any murder, using only your personal qualities. Besides, players who are used to achieving these objectives only by force are going to face a set of problems along the way.
Does the new character become a vampire at once?
No. All new characters start playing as mere mortals. Only after certain actions are committed, the player will be able to receive the “Embrace” and to turn into a vampire. However, it isn’t forbidden for the player to remain a human.
Will the loadscreens be in the game world?
The world will be partially seamless. For example, there’s going to be a large number of the cities with seamless locations. However, transitions between the cities will be made through loadscreens.
Will there be a change of day and night?
No, our world is the kingdom of eternal night.
Will I be able to buy my own house in the game?
Each player will have his own shelter, for example, the apartment.
How many levels will the character have?
In Dogma: Eternal Night characters won’t have level system at all. Development of the character will happen in a bit different way.
Will there be weapon?
Yes, characters will be able to use various cold weapons and firearms.
When is it coming out?
Date of release is unknown yet. The project is in development.
