Meridian 59 getting new updates from the open source community
Where will your favorite MMO be in two decades? If it’s Meridian 59, it may be still operating. The title, which originally launched in September of 1996, is now open source and supported by a community of volunteers who are maintaining and updating the project.
The game’s latest patch notes mention “mostly infrastructure changes” but also “some improvements that have been on many players’ wish lists for the last 20 years.” The developers are also planning to bring back some major 1990s-era content.[Source: Reddit]
