Sword of the New World is ready for Evora, the new test server for v3.4. G1 Forums have added a section for Evora Test Server. Random players who have purchased Gold or Premium during Jan-Feb, 2010 will get access to Evora. Selected players will receive e-mails and be able to login with their live server ID and passwords.
See Evora!: A Brief Intro for details about the new test server and Evora Client Download & Access Details for how to set up the client.
In addition, G1-Neume revealed a few more tentative information for future updates.
Don't the seasons occur at different time for different locations/countries? It's somewhat confusing to use seasons as markers when talking to an international audience. The same is true for "back-to-school" time. Anyway, I assume this means... v4.1 will be expected around June, 2010. v4.5 should be around Sept-Oct, 2010.
