    SDK announcement!

    Some interesting news on the Ubisoft forums. Though they've decided to stop releasing patches for the game, they're working on gearing up an SDK for release to the public. While most of the forum posters seem to be upset at the "abandonment" of the game, the way I see it they've just put the tools to fix any further problems in the hands of the players. Not that bad, really.

    But I gotta tell you I'm thrilled by the news of the SDK. When I originally reviewed the game for the Foxhole, an SDK was one of the things I had stressed as necessary to really give the game legs. Dark Messiah is just ripe for fan missions, a sort of blending of the Thief, Oblivion, and Half-Life 2 mod scenes. I'm a little miffed at having to edit my review, but exciting times ahead nonetheless!

    This should hopefully keep the game alive for some time to come.

    I still can't play the game without crashing after a few minutes though, patches and all.

    It certainly is ripe for fan missions. The level design was very good but in the hands of able mappers the possibilities with this are fairly wide ranging. Good news.

    Resurrecting the thread...

    So are there any news about the SDK or even first custom Levels? Actually, from the moment I was through with that game, I started looking for mod-projects, FMs, etc because that game would really be awsome for stuff like that...

    No really good news...

    The SDK are finished but Ubi dont want to released it, at least from an answer of Arkane in his forums

    The same info from the Ubi forums

    I think that maybe there's a little possibility that they are waiting to the release of the 360 version but I doubt it

    Maybe they know that fan made stuff will be 10x more polished than DM is and as you say, might want to milk some more money from the x-box before giving potentially better content to the PC.

    Yeah but that's only a maybe...I don' t have big hopes that they release it someday in the future...and to me it is very sad because I think that the MP is really unique and full of posibilities.
