Exciting news! We have officially finished work on our biggest patch yet - that we are now calling the Homeland Expansion. For the rest of today and tomorrow we are doing some last minute testing, as we are getting ready to release this Expansion Patch this weekend. Sorry it`s taking us so long, but it`s well worth the wait!


Here`s a couple of screenshots:

-Brand new Winter texture theme
-Fixing majority of PvP issues, including OOS


-Homeland expansions with three times as many houses and buildings to build on your homeland
-New guard towers and stand alone keep structures for your homeland
-Unique building and walls texture set for each region
