Will the world be round or flat?

I searched once again and did not find an answer to this question on these forums.


Through the travail of ages, midst the pomp and toil of war have I fought and strove and perished countless times before So as through a glass, and dimly, the age long strife I see - for I've fought in many guises, many names, but always me.

I think it will be round since if you look at the map you'll see at the bottom a little land popping up around the edge which will probably be new land that we discover as we play, though dont take my word for it its just wishful thinking on my part! / /^+^\ \

I think eventually, it will be round, but not before ocean going vessels are in the game.

That is to say eventually fully spherical so that we can go fully around the world from point a back to point a while traveling in the very same direction the entire time. Until the ocean vessels are in the game at least the world will merely be roundish.

I think it will look square at start since we wouldn't be able to sail at sea until someone research big ships... Also they said it will be possible to discover uncharted places... so maybe it will take a while till someone discover the world is round

Or we simply discover that the edge of the world isn't as close as we believed it to be.

the complete world is created at the beginning of the game. the size and form of the world will not change with inventions, just what we know of the world and the maps we produce may change.

Not many details of the world have been said. The map that was shown is "most likely" not going to be the one at launch. Caspian said in one of the Q&A that it "may" be used for alpha but other than that it is a completely different map. Plus every continent is supposed to be a server so I wouldst hype myself over continent travel until it is confirmed.

Actually, each server will likely have its own world. It's practically impossible to connect the various servers into one world. There would be an enormous home ground advantage for combat simply because any invader will have massive lag spikes.

I hope the world will be round!

But I do know that creating a truly round world brings a whole new set of issues to have to deal with. And also, with tunneling. The opens a completely new set of issues within a round game world.
