It’s nearly time for ArcheAge to enter under Kakao’s stewardship, which means potential players are going to want to get some affairs in order. And that means there are some dates and times players should mark on their calendars.
First, there’s the matter of the upcoming land rush, which will kick off on Saturday, December 11th, at 11:00 a.m. UTC for EU servers and 4:00 p.m. EST for NA servers. The devs note that they will be keeping a close eye for botting activity and act accordingly, but the realm will not go into a state of peace during the land rush, the Auroria land rush will not be staggered, and Beanstalk Mansions will not be disabled.
The post also confirmed the names of the new and existing servers for EU and NA players and further provided some new opening times for instances like arenas, Halcyona War, and other raids, which have seen some adjustments based on player feedback. We also want to remind players that time for transfering characters is starting to wear thin, as the servers will open up on December 2nd and Gamigo’s service of AA will end on December 1st.
In the meantime, players can now pre-download the game, provided they have 100GB(!) of storage space available, and also look forward to an AMA with XLGames and a Kakao CM starting today at 4:00 p.m. EST on the MMORPG subreddit.
