ArcheAge is one of the most loved and best-made MMORPG sandbox games ever made. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback and suggestions we’ve received from you, our community, we’ve decided to move the launch of ArcheAge: Unchained to October 15, 2019. “Shadows Revealed”, our next content update, will also be released at the same time for both versions – F2P and B2P. The graphics in both versions (F2P and B2P) of ArcheAge will be significantly improved and we’re working on optimizing graphics settings, performance, and features.

So you can experience the best possible gaming experience from the day of release, our Team will use the next few weeks to make a few final tweaks such as:
  • Improving features and ensuring new features such as the ArchePass is properly implemented
  • Ensuring a fair environment exists and removing pay-to-win features
  • Properly balancing ArchePasses and monetization system, Marketplace, Diligence Points and Credits and in-game mechanics

We’re excited to share the following important dates for ArcheAge: Unchained:
  • October 1 – 7: Founder access to Public Test Server begins. Name reservation and character creation begins for founders. Founders will need to download the ArcheAge: Unchained client to create their characters.
  • October 7 – 13: General access to the Public Test Server begins
  • October 15: Official release of ArcheAge: Unchained including the major content update “Shadows Revealed”

Here are the dates for the Free2Play version of ArcheAge:
  • October 1 – 13: General access for "Shadows Revealed" on PTS F2P
  • October 15: Major Update “Shadows Revealed” on Live F2P

We look forward to hearing your feedback and appreciate the interest you’ve shown for ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained.
