ArcheAge Open Beta: 9/4 – 9/8
As the next phase of our journey to launch on September 16, ArcheAge’s Open Beta begins this week, startingThursday, September 4 at 10:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and running until the same time on Monday, September 8! Players who participated in Closed Beta Event 4 will not need to redownload the entire game client, only an incremental patch to Version 1.2 Build 4.7. This build represents ArcheAge’s launch features but may not be the final patch before launch.
There will not be a wipe before Open Beta begins: all characters and their progress will be retained from CBE4. Your timers on crops and taxes are set to pick up right where they left off at the end of the last event. It’s important to note that no invites are necessary to join Open Beta: simply sign up on the official ArcheAge website to join. All players can patch to the latest build right now via Glyph.
The Open Beta server list has remained constant from CBE4 and represents our launch server list as well, though we may add more depending on traffic. The Auction House clusters will be Aranzeb, Naima, Kyrios, and Ollo in AH1, Tahyang and Salphira in AH2, and Shatigon, Kyprosa Eanna, Dahuta in AH3. Item listings from any server in a cluster will be accessible by all servers in that cluster.
Following Open Beta, we will be wiping all servers in preparation for ArcheAge’s Head Start, a four-day advance play window granted to all Founders. Head Start starts on Friday, September 12 at 10:00 AM PDT and culminates with ArcheAge’s official launch. All progress from Head Start will carry over to launch.
Not yet a Founder? Claim access to Head Start and begin your adventure in ArcheAge four days early with special in-game loot! Silver, Gold, and Archeum Founder’s Packs will be available all the way through to launch on September 16. If you have more questions about ArcheAge, please visit our updated FAQ.
