City of Steam: Arkadia will be temporarily offline beginning at 8:00PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) on January 27th. This downtime includes the game, as well as the website and forums, in order to migrate the server and perform overall maintenance on the data to optimize your gaming experience.
Please understand that such a process can take a lengthy time to complete, and thus the maintenance team estimates that we will be offline almost the entire day.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this will cause, and plan to send out a compensation package to all players.

Finally we are bidding farewell to 2014 and ushering in a brand new 2015. A million thanks go out to all CoS players for building up such a vibrant community since the game re-launched almost a year ago.
2014 means a lot to City of Steam, we got greenlit on Steam, expanded CoS to European regions and reached more players in Europe. We’ve been seeing the fastest growth for City of Steam ever in this year as well, cooperating with great platforms like Facebook, Armor Games, Yahoo and Wildtangent give CoS the opportunity to cover most of the players in the west. We’d like to thank all our partners for efforts they have done, and the sure thing is, there is still quite a lot of potential out there in the upcoming 2015! But firstly, it’s time to light the undiscovered 2015 up with some awesome events.
More Electrum, Last Chance in 2014
During the 3-day long (starting from 00:00 server time November 30th) party, players who power their characters up will receive 50% bonus for all purchased Electrum. If you missed out the chance at Christmas, no worries, stick to the New Year’s Party. Like always, the bonus also works for all dedicated players of our platform partners.
Snatch the Golden Battlegear Set
The rare Golden Battlegear would be a great New Year gift for all Nexan warriors, especially those who love PvP considering what bonus it offers. There are several ways to get this iconic set: 3 components will be up for grabbing in the next 3 days, be sure to seize the opportunity if you are ready to store up Electrum. In addition, Electro Charge and Lucky Wheel are another two places to get the Golden cosmetics, if you’ve had some Lucky Scrolls available, why not take a spin?
Bound Electrum, no-strings-attached
What’s more, all players who access the game in 2014 and 2015 will secure a free bundle containing Bound Electrum, Exp Potions and Vehicle Parts, without any strings attached. Time to clear some space of the Backpack.
Last but not least, we wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to a far more exciting 2015!
