It’s the kind of thing you’d expect to see in a game where the servers are a central feature.
But in the case of Manor: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, that’s not what happened.
In fact, the game’s servers are still running as of the time of this article’s writing.
A new patch for the game that went live yesterday fixes the issue.
Manor is currently hosting over 1,000 servers, with players able to set them to be down for up to 48 hours a day, as long as the servers have not been online for at least 24 hours.
That’s not the case with the Witcher 3, where the game will not allow players to go offline for a day without any warning.
That means players will be able to play for as long or as little as they like.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings also has a similar system, but in the cases of both games the servers will still remain offline for 24 hours after a game’s launch.
Manors servers are currently down, but the game is still running The Witcher, but not as well As with the previous Manor, players are able to access their Manor server by logging in, opening a game, then clicking on “Manors servers.”
Once in Manors server, players can see their server’s stats and stats from their friends list, and they can also access the servers achievements.
The most interesting feature, however, is the game doesn’t have any way of knowing when a server is offline.
“We do not have any mechanism for players to know when a Manors Server is offline,” the developers wrote in a statement.
“This is why we do not allow you to use a server to play the game on.
We do not know when the servers end and players are unable to play.
The only way to know is to log in to the server and wait for the server to close.”
A quick search for “Manor servers” on the Steam website turns up no indication that a server has closed.
The server admins said they’re not going to shut them down, and that players can expect to continue to use the servers indefinitely.
Manoring servers are not unique to the game.
The last major game to have servers offline for any extended period was The Witcher 4, which also ran for about six months.
“The Witcher 3 is not in any way different to the previous game,” the game developers wrote.
“Players can access their servers from any location, including the [Manors] server, via the login page and in the chat.
This allows the players to enjoy their time with their fellow players.”
