    Default ArcheAge Closed Beta begins July 17th!




    Adventurers,
    The beginning of ArcheAge’s next test phase is nearly here! We are proud to announce that Closed Beta will commence next week with our first event, A Brighter Age.
    Closed Beta Events will be three to five days in duration and your progress will persist between each event. Closed Beta Event 1 (CBE1) will run from Thursday, July 17 (10:00 AM PDT) to Monday, July 21 (10:00 AM PDT). Much like ArcheAge’s Alpha, the level cap will be 50 and we encourage you to share your ArcheAge adventure with the world via video, screenshots, or livestream as there will be no non-disclosure agreement (NDA)!
    Eager to explore and provide feedback on the sandbox world of Erenor before ArcheAge’s launch later this year?Sign up for a chance to be invited or guarantee your access to ALL Closed Beta Events by becoming an ArcheAge Founder. Invites and installation steps will be sent via email before each event. Closed Beta forums will be opened for testers to share their experiences, meet other players, and discuss Closed Beta feedback with the ArcheAge community.
    Have more questions about Closed Beta and beyond? Check out the ArcheAge FAQ!
    Discuss this article on the forums.




    My body is ready. Just bought my founder's pack ^-^. Though I dislike it is so short. Feel free to discuss folks.

    Game was pretty fun in alpha and I'll probably login a bit for beta but I want to save myself for when the game actually launches
    My feet hurt and I'm having trouble peeing.

    Might just wait for open beta or launch due to being busy with school and already having WoW to play.

    Replace school with work and WoW with random other games and thats basically me. Don't really want to drop the money on a founders pack I know I would regret almost immediately + the game doesn't look all that appealing to me anymore since I was never all that super hyped for the game.

    So the worth of the packs are even less now.
    Color me surprised.

    Also yes, early access is paying to test it.

    It's like people don't know what alphas and betas are for or something.


    Still hoping for the best with the na server mind you but currently unimpressed with their actions & plans.

    It's a bit more than just pay to test it.

    But the other stuff you get doesn't warrant the 150 USD price tag, least not in my honest opinion.

    I just don't get why people enjoy buying things before they're finished, especially indie games that have no legal obligation to ever be finished. Going a little off topic though so anyways

    If people want to spend $150 to participate in alpha/beta to bug test then..go for it, it's your money. Though people need to stop thinking Trion somehow NEEDS these to sell or the game will fail, won't publish, etc.

    You're given a decent sum of cash-shop money, plus access to a 4-day Head Start (which means the prime house spots will be open to you... and the hundred thousand other Founders...), a unique title that can only be gained via the Founders pack, 30-90 premium subscription, some alright items, and upgraded gliders right from the start. You also get what I guess is unique-to-founders-pack armor. And, in the case of the $150 pack, a cape that can only be gained from the founders pack.

    Between the premium time and cash-shop money, you are getting about 80% of your initial investment back in stuff you would have paid for anyways. The rest go towards those cosmetic armor/capes, the ability to start with a fully leveled glider (which can take a bit of time and money by itself) from the very start, plus the 4-day early access. To me, that's worth it. I don't think many people get the Founder's Packs for the Alpha/beta access alone.

    I had missed the part that head start was separate from the beta(which is why i said it was worth even less), so yes having a head start that won't get wiped is certainly a huge advantage in archage.

    As for the items and Cs currency these are obviously of subjective worth.

    Again I'm not telling people how to spend their money, just saying that I find their spending odd. At least when it's as big of a sum as 150USD.

    I don't know, I've been in quite a lot of betas over the years but I don't see many if not it's rare that open beta wipe's. Perhaps it was a time before I started doing beta's. I always thought Open Beta is for the final stress test with limited content and the finishing touch to find any remaining errors they might of left out. Though these days many treat any sort of beta they can access easily as a complete product so it's slowly losing its meaning.

    This is what I thought the meaning of the phase's of betas is; Alpha - Closer to raw product of the game testing the basic mechanic's, bugs, and seek flaws of the game. Closed Beta - Closer to finish product, expected to mainly find bugs, exploits, things that might of been left out, and partially stress test the servers as it enter final phase of close beta. Open Beta - Pretty much finish product, mainly used for stress testing the servers and pick up any flaws that might cause problems for official launch. I'm probably wrong though.

    It is pretty common now days for OB to not wipe so it's not wrong for you to start presuming this will always be the case.

    If I had to make the best guess I could give, companies labeling their launch as OB(which would normally be the free sign-up and login on a smaller server to stress test) is to avoid confusion amongst players when some bugs still persist or pop up because bugs are like that, stubborn.

    My take on it is that it is done when a game is still being developed and having changes made to it. Apparently though this whole pay for alpha (someone said it was $120 to enter the Russia alpha), closed beta and then open beta before release thing is what XL Games (developer) does.

    Taken from wikipedia,
    Initial development of ArcheAge began in 2011, and closed testing of the game took place over two years. Before finally being released in Korea on January 15, 2013, the game went through five closed beta tests and one open beta test.

    It's just like P2P games where you can pay for 3months, 6mo, or a full year in advance. If anyone wanna get quite serious in this game, or can totally see themselves still playing it actively in 3 months, then $150 is a pretty dang good investment. Especially if you want to own a powerful guild and such.
