While Trion Worlds is still being coy about a release date for ArcheAge (the official line is still "2014"), the studio announced today during its livestream the details behind a trio of founder's packs for the upcoming fantasy sandbox. Here's what each of the packs contains:
  • Silver ($49.99): Beta access, four-day head start, Founder title (with stats), 30-day patron pass, experimental hang glider, and 2,500 credits.
  • Gold ($99.99): Beta access, four-day head start, Traveler title (with stats), 60-day patron pass, 10 evenstones, 10 hereafter stones, glass phoenix hang glider, desert assassin platemail, and 7,500 credits.
  • Archeum ($149.99): Alpha access, beta access, four-day head start, Trailblazer title (with stats), 90-day patron pass, Daru Chests, 10 evenstones, 10 hereafter stones, glass phoenix hang glider, desert assassin platemail, Founder's cloak with customizable logo, personalizable crest, 10 pet healing potions, and 11,250 credits.
We spoke to Trion earlier this week about these founder's packs and upcoming test periods -- read on!

So anyone done this yet?

 

I am very close on going for the $149 pack! But will all the things I get in the pack be mine and applied on my character when the game is released as final as well?

From what I remember, the Alpha is going to be up 24/7, bar beta events ( I think ).
I assume they'll turn the Alpha Server into the Test Server post release, I think FireCait stated that on stream though..?
They said they're trying to hit beta sometime within June so here's hoping! :3

Some of us actually care about where our money goes so I won't be buying it.

I already wrote a wall of text about it on the official forums. Won't be making another one.

I can't believe they decided to go more expensive than EQNLandmark.

I'll probably be picking up the silver tier. The way I see it, it's like a box price.

Yeah. There's no way anyone over the place I live would ever pay that much for the Archeum pack.

FYI, IceD, I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think Alpha is ever going to be wiped. I heard a rumor that it's going to become the test server once live hit.

And would you be happy to remain on a "test" server? Once a server becomes tagged for "testing" it becomes completely unreliable and things like wipes without any sort of forewarning happen, even on a daily basis; there's are no refunds. They already stated alpha/beta will be wiped; even if they might change their minds, it doesn't make much of a difference for people who already made their minds.

I'm just saying that you keep talking about Alpha being wiped when actually they have only ever said that Beta will be wiped.

Firecait stated in the housing stream that "both alpha and beta will be wiped before the official release". Of course, this doesn't exclude a situation, where they might actually keep the alpha from being wiped, but it's all speculation and there's no word on what might actually happen with the game itself before we'll get a stable release for everyone. Rumors are just rumors.

In the most recent glider stream, she said "only beta will be wiped."

If it never gets wiped I'll never leave the test server.
