Fallen Earth postpones anniversary event and server shutdown by a little bit

The end of the world just got delayed

What happens when you try to shoehorn in an event into creaky infrastructure that you never built? Chances are, nothing good. Little Orbit is in this exact situation with Fallen Earth right now as the new owners are trying to get the game’s new 10th anniversary event going even while the title is counting down the days until its closure.

Over the weekend, Little Orbit CEO Matt Smith delivered updates on the situation, saying that it was having problems with the updater system that delivers the patches (such as the aforementioned event). He vowed to “run [the event] anyway as soon as it’s ready,” which could be as soon as today if all goes well.

And speaking of the shutdown, the end of Fallen Earth’s current run might enjoy a slight reprieve. “There have been some questions about when the server will go offline,” Smith said. “I want the event to run for a full two weeks. I’ll announce the last day when the event goes live as well.”

I hate seeing any game shut down. Every game has a place in someones heart somewhere on the planet.

There were less people online today on the entire server (less than 20) than there were guild members online in my bdo guild today. I don’t know if they will keep going with the rebuild effort considering the lack of interest in the game. I hope they do. There is nothing else like fallen earth out there. But now it requires a lot more than a new graphics engine.

We all hope they do, and i’ll trust them. Losing this game is a blow to the MMORPG scene, even being a small game.

It deserves every improvement it can get.

An advantageous problem it seems if it delays the shutdown :P

I think it’s funny that your game works so clunkly, that even the shutdown goes wrong.

I’ll never play this game but I’m really interested on its development, it’s very fun and insightful.

When even the shutdown event gets screwed because of game engine, you know that there’s something reeeeeally wrong with your game.
