  • The Seasons Update (v1.13-rc.1)


    Dear Seasonal Community
    v1.13-rc.1 can now be downloaded through the account manager

    Sooooo, looks like we managed to pull of some pretty decent seasons system for the game! \o/

    This version is a "release candidate", which means it is feature complete and should be free from most game breaking bugs. We're releasing it into the larger community to find any last remaining major (and minor) issues before going full stable release.

    Julius van Vern made us a great trailer for this update, have a look:
