Tibia Takes a Leap “Down Under”: New Servers for the Veteran MMO

In what could easily be mistaken for an April Fools’ gag, Tibia—yes, the venerable MMO that’s been around since your dial-up internet days—is rolling out the red carpet for its dedicated players in the Oceanic region. With a straight face, the folks behind this digital relic announced the introduction of three new game worlds. It’s a delightful nod to the game’s enduring legacy and a humorous twist on the ever-evolving world of online gaming.

The announcement brings a chuckle to those who’ve witnessed the MMO landscape morph over the decades. Tibia, in its ancient wisdom, has decided to cater to its fan base in Australia, New Zealand, and the surrounding seas by setting up two Optional PvP and one Open PvP game worlds. It’s a move that says, “We might be old, but we’re not out!” proving that even in the fast-paced world of gaming, there’s always room for a classic.

  • Victoris (Open PvP): Like the VIP section of a retro club, no transfers allowed—at least for a while.
  • Oceanis (Optional PvP): Rolling out the welcome mat for character transfers from day one.
  • Stralis (Optional PvP): Joining Victoris in the exclusive no-transfer zone, temporarily.

It’s as if Tibia is inviting players to a party that’s been going on for decades, and somehow, it’s still not over. Each world will be equipped with BattlEye protection, which might sound like hiring a bouncer for a party that’s been peaceful for years. The nuances of these protections—green for the go-getters in Stralis and Victoris, and yellow for the all-are-welcome vibe in Oceanis—add layers to the amusement.

The decision to open new servers comes with a catch: it’s a trial run. After at least 12 months of seeing how these old-school worlds fare in a new region, the Tibia team will take stock. It’s an experiment that feels akin to dusting off an old board game and seeing if it still captivates the room. Depending on how the community rallies, these servers might become a permanent fixture or blend back into the digital ether from whence they came.
