Most of you probably already received an email with the launch date announced, but to those who didn't: I am proud to announce that Rise of Midgard will officially open its gates on the 6th of January, at 22:00 GMT+0!
We will be closing the Public Beta Server and the WoE-Ready server for Pre-Trans WoEs between January 1st and January 6th, in order to not confuse the players who would have downloaded the client before launch.
Indeed, more than 1,800 of you have already put your faith in us for this launch so far, and we cannot express our gratitude and excitement enough! A day doesn't go by where the team isn't working hard to get everything ready, and as you probably guessed, there will always be something on our to-do list due to how perfect we want this project to be once it’s finally out the door.
In order for you to be ready for the Official Launch on January 6th, you can download our client from this forum topic, as well as from the website home page.
If your download is slow, please feel free to use the alternative links.
You can find more in-depth information about our announced features in this section of the forums, or on our Wiki.
Even if ready to be implemented, the following features will not be available right when the server opens, and will instead be released some time in January:
- Battlegrounds will be added two weeks into the server's release, in order to give everyone adequate time to prepare their characters.
- Special Battlegrounds Characters will be available at the same time as Battlegrounds. Please bear in mind these characters cannot perform any actions outside BG and Sunday WoE maps. You can find more information about them in our PvP Environment, Battlegrounds and War of Emperium topic.
- War of Emperiums, both Saturday Vanilla and Sunday Competitive will be made available starting Monday, January 30th. That means the first War of Emperiums on the Main Server will be starting the weekend of the 4th and 5th of February.
Finally, I just want to thank every single person from both the community and the staff who participated in this project for more than 6 months now.
Bear in mind Rise of Midgard was co-created with you, the community, and will continuously evolve thanks to you and your suggestions.
I can't wait to see how much this new year will bring to us!
