The latest ArcheAge update has been posted on the Trion site. In it, Evan 'Scapes' Berman reveals that what has been known as patch v1.2 in Korea is being renamed "build 4.1" to differentiate it for the North American version of the game. Berman further writes that the patch is being prepped for deployment to the alpha servers soon. Lastly, Berman announced that a new alpha server is being added.
As a result of our decision to launch with Version 1.2 content, Beta was postponed by a few weeks. With Alpha testing about to begin, we’re glad to announce that Closed Beta Events will be starting in mid-to-late July. These events will last three to five days each with access being granted by random invitation or purchase of a Founder’s Pack. We’ll be hosting invite giveaways in the coming weeks and will open up European servers during these events. An all-access Open Beta phase will follow these events, after which we’ll wipe the servers of all progress and data to begin Head Start and launch later this year.
