The latest news straight from the lead developers of the sandbox MMORPG Xsyon.

  1. Developer Update 12.18.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I patched a very minor update tonight. I won't post patch notes for this update because the main change is setting up the code to allow for players to pay to keep characters active (as several of us discussed on the forums).

    Totems have also been replaced with Christmas totems for the Holiday season!

    Edit: Over the next few days you'll see changes to the website as I update the look of the forums. The changes will be done over time as ...

  2. Developer Update 12.15.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    This is a big week for Xsyon players! Xsyon now does not require a subscription!

    This is a big change that I've been considering for a while now. The decision to remove the subscription is based on several factors including:

    - A great resistance from players on Steam to a subscription based 'Early Access' game.

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Test Server is open for public testing. Please check out the feedback thread for full details.

    One big change this week is revised keyboard input. Although this ...

  4. Developer Update 11.21.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Peace Server has been updated with a potential final fix for the server lockups that have been occurring from time to time (especially this past week). The War Server will be updated during the next maintenance.

    For a long time, the server has been locking up roughly once a month. Although with each lock up I would obtain additional clues to the problem, it's been very difficult for me to locate the exact cause.

    With the recent increased ...

  5. Developer Update 11.18.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Test Server is open to the public to test out optimizations to object loading functions.

    Recently players have alerted me to increased loading times and lag during zone crossings (again) due to the amount of construction going on in game. I've spent the past several days working non stop on optimizations to speed up loading and better manage in game objects. The results look very good so far and this patch will be ready to go after a bit more testing. ...
