Shadowbane closing servers on July 1st.

Farewell.

Word has come down from Ubisoft that the severs for Shadowbane will officially be closed on July 1st 2009, permanently [Press Release]. Previously set as May 1st, it has been extended for two months, so now is a great time to check it out if you’ve never tried it. It’s absolutely free to make an account and download the game. I know I will be.

Admittedly, I never got far in Shadowbane (barely beyond the starting areas). I followed the game during its development cycle but was saddened when it came out to bad reviews. Shadowbane was stricken with poor graphics (even for its time), a clunky interface, and was bug ridden. But what Shadowbane did correctly was be the first MMO since Ultima Online to actually capture the true open PvP vibe. It was full open PvP and guild city building and seiges. When it was in its prime it was considered one of the finest PvP centered MMO’s available. Unfortunately that time came around the WoW era. Another great MMO taken down by theme-park garbage MMO’s.
