A recent newsletter displays a retrospective look back at 2016 and the progress made on Shards Online since the release of Pre-Alpha 3 in December 2015. To show how much progress has been made, a brief overview image was also released to give a thumbnail sketch of how far Shards has come.
There will be more development in 2017 too with a 25x larger game world and mounts coming in the more immediate future and prior to the Steam launch. Also, the game will be moving to Alpha beginning the weekend of January 13th.
