UPDATED: We’ve just posted an announcement to our site that we will be delaying our arrival on the Steam store to after the holidays. The post goes into detail about why and what we will be doing moving forward.
We’ve received a ton of requests for information regarding exactly when the different stages of this launch will become available. These dates and times are our current targets. While we will do absolutely everything in our power, we are a small team and unexpected events could force us to make changes to this timeline. The best places for minute to minute information on these events as they unfold is Twitter (@LegendsOfAria) and our official forums. So without further ado:
Nov 23rd 5pm EST – Nov 25th 12am EST
Open Beta Weekend
All of the details for this event can be found on our Open Beta Announcement
Nov 27th 3pm EST
Final character wipe and 7-day Headstart
Everyone who owns a Founder’s Pack can play during the Headstart. We will continue to sell Founder’s Packs all the way up to December 3rd.
Crowdfunding and Founder’s digital rewards will also become available for redemption during this week.
We plan to have three (3) official servers online:
- Azure Sky (US East 1)
- Verdant Earth (US East 2)
- Crimson Sea (EU 1)
December 4th 3pm EST
Steam Early Access Launch
The game will go live on the Steam Store, officially launching us into Early Access! We are prepared to launch additional official servers if needed to meet demand.
Founder’s Pack owners will have the opportunity to link their Founder’s Pack to a Steam key, however we will continue to offer the standalone client on our own site for those who do not wish to use Steam.
