Thursday 10/4 at 22.00 hrs CEST we will test Xanadu, our new Mega Sized PvE Server. We want you to join in and help us out! The time for testing the new server is already here! So in preparation for this there are some things you probably should know. At the designated time we will post the link to launch the test directly in the current game launcher so it will be easy to find. After you have chosen a random nickname and password for yourself you will be teleported to one of several starting locations. The character you create will only exist during the extent of the test and has no affect on any earlier character with the same name. Please tell as many people you know as possible to try this out as we really want to put it to the test! The size we are testing is 16 times the size of our current largest servers. Our current largest servers are 16Ã—16 kilometers, and this new map is 64Ã—64 kilometers, or 4096 square kilometers, non-instanced, single zone fully modifiable, living terrain! We want to test how many players can be on the server simultaneously and how bad the lag gets on the client and server under this heavy load. There will also be 50 000 creatures roaming the wilderness (which is a fairly low population in Wurm terms). NO REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED FOR JOINING THE TEST! You will just have to type your desired nickname and a random password and click play once we provide the link to the client used for the test. Apart from the fact that no other MMO has ever launched a modifyable map of this size, running this many players in one game zone is pretty unusual in itself and will be an interesting experience. We strongly suggest you join in. We will livestream the event on www.twitch.tv/codeclub. In case all goes well weâ€™ll consider releasing the server within a few weeks after some more testing and tweaking. We will post a link to the game client used for these tests on our launcher and in the news section of the web site approximately half an hour before the test goes live. Note that this test will last approximately one hour and the server will be made unavailable afterwards and the database will probably be wiped. Hope you can make it! /The Wurm Online Team Test starts in :
