Yesterday saw the release of Evolution 2.2, the latest update to Neocron. With the release of 2.2 everyone that has an inactive Neocron 2 game account has kindly been given 30 days of free playtime on their accounts (providing you weren't banned).
If you're interested in checking it out, you can download the new client from the official NC2 site.
More info on 2.2 and the changes can be found here. ;)
