ArcheAge’s second Closed Beta Event is starting mere days after the first one ended! The event kicks off on Wednesday, July 30 at 10:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and runs until the same time on Monday, August 4. Players who participated in CBE1 will not need to redownload the entire game client, only a 161MB patch to Build 4.3 which is currently on our Alpha servers.
There will not be a wipe before CBE2 begins: all characters and their progress will be retained from CBE1. Your timers on crops and taxes are set to pick up right where they left off at the end of the last event. It’s important to note that invites to CBE1 will not be valid for CBE2, but we are expecting that this event will be three times the size of the first with lots more partner site giveaways and randomly-selected invitations for fans who signed up on the official ArcheAge website. CBE2 code giveaways will begin on Friday, July 25, at Alienware, Razer, Rixty, MMORPG.com, Curse, TenTonHammer, NowGamer, Gamona, PCGamesN, MMOHuts, onRPG, BrowserGames.de, Free2Play.chip.de, and Games.de. Additionally, our Alpha and Founder players will have access to all of Beta.
To prepare for the increased population, we’ve doubled our server count for CBE2! Also, the Alpha servers will be live during this event.
