According to «Granado Espada: Вызов Судьбы». Завершение пути, the Russian servers will be closing down as well. The servers will run for another month, with EXP x20 rate and vast reduction in cash shop prices. Unlike Sword 2, there is no mention of server transfer.
The cash shop will also contain 3 new random boxes, which drop Arcana weapons, Jewel weapons, Angel weapons, weapon costumes, pet boxes, etc. See here for list of drops.

The Russian servers last updated to v8.5.2 in late August 2012. (See Russian Update v8.5.2.) In Christmas 2009, they were the first to introduce the tiger pets. Then in 2010, they have their own customised costumes - Steel Griffin & Scarlet Admiral.
The publisher will be moving on to Dragon Nest instead. See here for the list of games provided by the same Russian publisher.
Rogue GE Client Update
Meanwhile, Rogue GE will be switching to v10.6 game client in 1 month, but server will remain as v8.5. See here for details.
What is the point of updating client if it will not offer anything new?
New client will offer new content for implementation. As distinct features like UPCs for example can not be migrated from new client to old client we have to update client in order to be able to start implementing new features in our server.
