Petition To See New Engine Welcome A New Server In Anarchy Online

The long-running success of Funcom’s science-fiction MMORPG game Anarchy Online is set to continue following a recent update that provided the community with the option of downloading an new engine version of the game on the live servers. The installer itself is a little under 5 GB but the full installation size is a little heftier, coming in at around 23 GB.

The new engine update impacts practically every area of the game with smoother combat, a noticeable improvement in graphical quality, smoother transitions and better loading times. For full details on the engine check out the official patch notes.

Just before the update was live members of the Anarchy Online took to Reddit to share their sentiments on a potential fresh start server to take full advantage of the new engine, although official stance on the topic is yet to be made clear.

Know I’m not the only one around here who used to play AO like it was EverCrack. However, since I’ve been gone so long I feel completely disconnected from the current live server. Would it be of interest to launch a NEW server, kind of akin to the whole “Time Locked” craze going on right now except it isn’t a TLP server….just a normal everything-unlocked new server :D?
