Development News #72 — NA Servers Incoming and Update of Plans!
We are happy to announce that Friday, the 13th (muahaha) of October, is the date of the North American world start!
Seize the opportunity to start from scratch and use this as a ‘final rehearsal’ before the server wipes and the start of the actual OBT later
this year. We will announce the date of the OBT as ‘soon™’ as we are able to.
Oh, and after discussing with our launching partners across the globe, we have decided to launch the Steam Early Access of the MMO at the same
time that OBT starts. So it will basically be the one major start event,where our game will become available to our backers and all owners of
LiF:YO on Steam!
Stay tuned for more news!

Development News #73 — Brave New World!
Today is Friday the 13th, so we thought we’d bring some luck to the day by launching the whole new LiF:MMO world, with servers based in North America!
It is a test empty world with the same map and resources locations as the good old European one. All who have access to our current CBT will be able to join this world, just switch the region from Europe to North America in the launcher.
The NA world is a good place to have a rehearsal for the upcoming OBT start as it is completely fresh and will have no wipes until the OBT.
You can try out different strategies for your settlement development and make plans and arrangements, ready for the wipe and clear start of the
OBT. Just keep in mind that we are going to have all the resources reshuffled on the OBT start to give newcomers the equal opportunities at
the new beginning of the feudal life.
We have also recently released a small patch for LiF:YO. Among implemented features, we’ve added the ability to get inside damaged
buildings. You will no longer need to tear them down completely to get to the loot, just break in and get the spoils! The patch also brings in
some fixes and balance tweaks, you can check the detailed patch notes at our Steam store page!
