Despite all evidence to the contrary, FoE is not dead! Work continues (very) slowly but surely.
Here's some news about the next update:
It will be known as RC-8 It will feature a new quest which takes you all over 2305 AD, including Northern Zenan and Medina! These two areas have never been accessible in 2305 before.
It will include several new maps and 2 new dungeons!
It will include lots of fixes to bugs, many of which were reported by the community. It will NOT be the final release, although subsequent releases will most likely contain further bugfixes, rather than new content.
We hope we still have some fans hanging on despite the long absence of updates. This is a decently large quest that's being added, so we want to take our time and make sure everything looks and plays well. Unfortunately, that means there's still a ways to go before it comes out. Expect something within the next few months. We will try to get updates out more regularly to give you an idea of our progress.
Thanks for everyone's loyalty- let's keep that Dream of Zeal alive!
P.S.: Here are screen shots of some of the new areas!
