Weak, weak types of how darkfall is different from darkfall. Generally you’re picking in the edges of have no idea of Diku MMO and looking to say “They are completely different!”. The truth is, there are a variety of similarities. Like Stat based game play, role based classes, “dungeons” within a general sense and rarity based loot drops. These are the core from the DikuMUD and in addition they’ve continued to exist till today. The only games I’ve discovered that do this differently are EvE Online, Planetside and maybe Darkfall.
On the whole, at the games core, there's a lot of similarities and this remains to be true of even all the next gen MMO’s. Action video from darkfall suggest it’s still third , model.
