Cute. Try not to let your oxen die while fording a river.

Sword of the New World recently announced that they'll be releasing an expansion titled "Manifest Destiny."

K2 Network ( ) a
leading online game publisher, announced today that it has launched an
expansion for its epic Age of Exploration MMORPG Sword of the New
World: Granado Espada. The new expansion is entitled Manifest Destiny;
a name that was proposed by the game's own community. The expansion
offers five new characters, two new maps and five new zones as well as
new events and additions to the game's item store.

In 2007, Sword of the New World: Granado Espada players were included
in the process of naming the expansion and the Halian Family from the
game's Orpesia World proposed the eventual winner: Manifest Destiny.

"We feel that this name perfectly encompasses all of the aspect of the
expansion," said Philip Maurer, Associate Producer at K2 Network. "As
Pioneers will be exploring further West in this expansion, claiming
the new lands "Manifest Destiny" puts a real spin on the continuing
storyline as the Crown and the Republic begin to lay claim to lands
that seem to be occupied by other inhabitants. As the story moves
westward it will become clear, that this land was put here by
providence and it is up to the Pioneers, to take it."
