The Wurm Online team is inviting any and all comers to take part in a server test event this Thursday, April 10th. During the event, players will face off against 50,000 monsters and is designed to give developers of how many players can be stuffed onto the server at the same time.
You will just have to type in 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 we’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.
