Darkfall really wants you to be playing it and is willing to make a few major concessions to pave the way for both new and returning players to join the fold.
The subscription PvP MMO is running a February promotion aimed at, well, everyone. Lapsed players will find that Aventurine has reactivated their accounts for a week, new players can pick up the game for 75% off, and current players can pick up a six-month subscription for 45% off. This promotion will go through February 13th.
Aventurine also posted a note saying that lapsed accounts three months or older will require a support ticket to dig those characters out of storage.
