If you simply can’t wait for ArcheAge to release, or can’t wait for access via applying at the homepage and being active in the forums then waiting on luck, you can buy your way in. The game is still in closed Alpha, but it will be in Beta come sometime in June (not officially yet, but I believe that is the rumored date). There are three tiers of Founders Packs that can get you into the game before the official release (still not announced). All Founders Packs include a 4 day head start before the game releases. They also said there will be no wipes until the 4 day headstart. Beta has been termed “events” which might mean it is limited periods.
- Silver: $49.99. Includes access to the Beta when it comes out. One month of the premium membership ($15 value), while the game is free to play, premium members get better labor point regeneration, xp bonus, ability to own house or farm and loyalty rewards, you can also pay for premium access with in game money. $20 worth of credits. A Founder title… and a special glider.
- Gold: $99.99. Beta access. Two months of premium membership ($60 value). $50 worth of credits. A Traveler title, a fancier glider… 10 Everstones for breaking down for magical crafting ingredients. 10 Hereafter Stones that can teleport you to any visited location in the world (well… specific locations of those locations). Special platemail.
- Archeum: $149.99. Includes instant Alpha access as well as the beta access. $75 worth of credits and 90 days of premium membership ($45 value)… basically you you get $120 worth of goods, so the extra $30 grants you Alpha access plus all the following. 6 Daru chests that have special items in them and include a potential special mount. A Trailblazer title, 10 Everstones and 10 Hereafter Stones. The same glider and platemail from the Gold pack. Regents to put your own crest in the game. 10 healing potions for your pets. Your own customizable cloak.
