Dark Age Of Camelot: Catacombs introduces all-new classes and graphics into the game world of Camelot. As the war between Albion, Hibernia and Midgard rages on, a new threat is growing deep within the Earth. Powerful forces of evil have launched an attack upon the realms from below, revealing hordes of menacing creatures never before seen. New allies have emerged desperately seeking aid, for if their world falls, the surface will be next. Save your realm by venturing deep into the Earth -- the Catacombs!
Dark Age of Camelot: Catacombs is the third retail expansion pack for the award-winning MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot. It features expansive underground areas, dungeon instancing, and graphical upgrades to the player race models, as well as old-world buildings, dungeons, and monsters.
Dark Age of Camelot: Catacombs features completely reconstructed player character models. The polygon count of these models has been dramatically increased to allow for significantly improved visuals and fun additions, such as blinking eyes and moving fingers. The changes are firmly grounded in the original character and armor designs. Accompanying the implementation of the new models is a "level of detail" toggling system, which allows players to customize the bells and whistles to their liking in order to achieve the desired system performance. Players can turning off the Catacombs player models, too.
Players who have Vertex, Pixel Shader 2.0, and a Direct X 9.0-compatible graphics card will enjoy an additional feature--an enhanced texture tinting (armor dyeing) system. With Catacombs, dyed armors are no longer simply darkened to the selected color. A special masking technique is used to retain the highlights and shadows of the base texture resulting in a more realistic effect. For example, leather will dye a deeper color than metal, since the metal now keeps its characteristic shiny highlights.
In addition to the model and texture rendering improvements, Catacombs incorporates the EMotion FX 2 real-time character animation system, an engine upgrade that allows artists to enhance the character models with more realistic motions. The efficiency of EMotion FX 2 provides a performance boost while also decreasing the memory footprint of the animation system.
Note: This is an expansion pack and requires the full version of Dark Age of Camelot to play.
This expansion added some fun elements to the game. You could grab tasks from NPCs in town and run into Catacombs and complete them. Read morePublished on May 10, 2012 by Emjaye

Catacombs basically renders all the old zones useless. Why waste time in them when you can level up twice as fast running the insta dungeons. Read morePublished on August 22, 2005 by Jack
