Asheron's Call gets 100th update

Yes. It is still running.

Turbine has released the one hundredth content update for its long-running fantasy MMO, Asheron's Call.

This remarkable feat comes nearly nine years after the game's release in late 1999. Asheron's Call was originally published by Microsoft, but now Turbine publishes it itself, as it does with its current hit Lord of the Rings Online.

The update introduces Societies, a new faction system offering fresh quests and rewards; two new player-controllable towns to fight over in player-versus-player combat; new tiers of loot and spells, and some new areas to adventure in.

Asheron's Call, we salute you. You might not boast fifteen full expansion packs, like your contemporary, EverQuest; but it's still an impressive run.
