The launch of the new content was free of all technical problems as the servers came back online at 12 PM CET on 15 September, following one day of preparation for the European and US re-launch.
In order to adequately handle the flood of players, the Runes of Magic server farm in Frankfurt Germany was expanded with an additional European server. This brings the total number of game worlds to 19, running in German, English (US and EU), French and Spanish language versions. Frogster has additional capacity on hand, to handle additional players and to ensure fans can easily access the game.
"We are excited that the launch of the second chapter has been such a success", Daniel Ullrich, Director Product Management, says, "The detailed internal testing phase we underwent in cooperation with our community, finally has paid off."

The diamonds are part of a week packed with promotional activity surrounding the launch of the second chapter on 15 September.
