Calling All Captains Across OGame — New Language Servers Inbound!

In celebration of OGame's 20th anniversary, Gameforge recently launched the massive Lifeforms expansion on English servers. As of 5th August, 16 additional languages are available, bringing the massive content update to players across the world in their local languages! 

The game-changing Lifeforms expansion introduces four species into the universe of OGame and opens up countless new strategies for players to explore, with new buildings, technologies, and actions specific to each race. To learn more, take a look at the two tutorials that introduce the new Human, Kaelesh, Mecha, and Rock’tal lifeforms and go over their strategies, benefits, and tech trees. There’s also a Q&A on the way that covers the new expansion!

Prove Your Strength in New Raids and Don New Attire in Swords of Legends Online
 
Players can dive into epic new content in Sword of Legends Online! Throughout July, three new raids opened in the War Domain: the “Demon Battlefield,” the “Realm of Hallucinations,” and the “Realm of Destroyed Evil.” An army of demons has invaded the area under the influence of the Biyouji and help is needed to get the situation under control!

Dive back into the world of SOLO and face even more challenging encounters as the Hard Mode for each of the raids becomes available in August. 

And as always, the new season – which started in June – brought with it beautiful new cosmetics and outfits you can unlock by completing in-game activities! You have time until the end of the season to get your hands on the exclusive Leisureland set “Cuiyan Spring Rain”, among others!

There will be more content arriving in September as a new story unfolds, including new instances to explore and new events taking place in Shenzhou.

Make New Friends as Two NosTale Servers Merge

Even more folks can join you on your NosTale adventures as two server merges bring more players together. At the beginning of August, the German DE 1 (Ancelloan) and DE 2 (Fortuna) servers came together to become DE 1 (Alzanor), while the English EN 3 (International-1) and EN 4 (International-2) servers transformed into EN 3 (INT-Valehir). This is only the beginning as eventually some US servers will also be merged. 

All of your characters, spouses, and families will remain in place as servers are merged. Any additional characters exceeding the cap after the move will be deactivated and can be restored at your leisure. Your friend lists and spouses will also be merged and waiting for you on the new, combined server. As for families, all active ones will be moved over, and your Family Head will get a parcel with all the items from the family warehouse. So hop back into NosTale and take a look around!
