Rob's awesome - and so is his podcast.   It's like an oasis in the desert of PC culture.  Kinda like Stern, but with more weed.

Couple words about the game: Camelot Unchained is PvP/building/crafting MMORPG by Mark Jacobs - say, it's IGN Wiki for quick intro. Some of it's important features are three Realms, 33 different classes (! - but not all will be there by launch), physics and spell collision (say, frost + fire produce steam), players crafting their abilities from components and world - made of huge islands - changing it's texture and shape (!) based on player territory control.

100% free form building is another major one - it will matter a lot for the economy and especially for control and defense of conquered territories. Say, this video was made in May by Necromaniak, one of players in alpha tests:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/SHaXdWvQHEg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/SHaXdWvQHEg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a> 

...many, many hours later:







Tool he was using is C.U.B.E. and it is still rather rough, alpha test example. Buildings can be destroyed - unless you build offline or in starting zones BUT there will be siege windows (time for destruction) and it should take big number of players and siege engines.

Besides building, there isn't much footage worth showing at the moment, except for couple screenshots or vines such as this or this. Available videos mostly have 2013 i.e. placeholder models and animations, since the team was focused on building and testing their custom made engine, physics and some basic features till recently. This is major reason for NDA still being on.

Access to game now is kinda expensive, but they will have open beta in 2017 (second half would be my bet), right before launch. Also, beta should start in a month or two.

It actually looks a bit better now, and they keep on improving it. Some more alpha test building/housing screenshots, all player made brick by brick (it's still quite rough, just not as bad as ones from the previous post):









...and some random in-game stuff, say Arthurian knight vs a Viking:





...and here's some environment:
