Neume has announced the status of v3.0 for Sword of the New World...
Okay, so the new dates are Sept 9 for test server, and Sept 23 for official launch. Well, a delay of 2 weeks isn't so bad, so long they don't delay it yet again... and again, and again. The patch notes is available in forum topic Echoes of an Empire, but as usual, it is really lacking in details. I suggest readers refer to sGE v3.0 Patch Notes instead.
