ArcheAge launches in the west today with servers going live ready for the early access Head Start period.
At 10 am PDT (5pm GMT) on 12th September gamers who’ve purchased Founder Packs will be able to jump in to the game for four days before everybody else gets a go when the game officially launches on 16th September.
“While all Beta progress will have been wiped, there will not be a wipe between Head Start and launch: all characters and their progress will be retained,” write Trion. “It’s important to note that Head Start is an exclusive event for ArcheAge’s Founders: any Founder’s Pack will grant you immediate access and bonus perks. Founders can patch to the latest build right now via Glyph.
“The Head Start server list has remained constant from Open Beta and represents our launch server list as well, though we may add more depending on traffic. The Auction House clusters will be Aranzeb, Naima, and Kyrios in AH1, Ollo, Tahyang, and Salphira in AH2, Shatigon and Kyprosa in AH3, and Eanna and Dahuta in AH4. Item listings from any server in a cluster will be accessible by all servers in that cluster.”
All progress Founders make during the Head Start period will be carried over when ArcheAge goes fully live.
