To all of Erenor’s intrepid adventurers, be you fierce warriors,

brave explorers, fearsome pirates, or skilled crafters: we welcome you

as a member of ArcheAge’s launch community! Revealed this evening in

Seattle at PAX Prime 2014 to an audience of your fellow players, Trion

Worlds and XLGAMES are proud to officially announce that ArcheAge will launch on Tuesday, September 16.



Open Beta: 9/4-9/8Head Start: 9/12-9/16Launch: 9/16



Our road to launch starts with Open Beta commencing on Thursday, September 4 at 10:00 AM PDT

and run to the same time on Monday, September 8. Open Beta will be

available to all new and veteran players with no invitation required. If

you’ve played during Closed Beta, your character will be waiting for

you and your timers on crops and taxes will pick up right where they

left off. 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.



It’s important to note that this announcement does mark the end of

Alpha. The Alpha and Omega servers will be permanently brought down

Sunday, August 31 at 12:00 AM, but not without due fanfare. Starting

this Saturday at 6:00 PM PDT, our diligent Alpha testers should check

their in-game mail, keep a weather eye on the horizon, and be ready for

anything…



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. You

can prepare for Open Beta now by using Glyph to update or install

ArcheAge. If you have more questions about ArcheAge, please visit our

updated FAQ.



Thank you for joining us on this journey, ArcheAge adventurers. The world of Erenor is about to open and we’re glad you’re here!



The ArcheAge Team
