Trion has announced that the v2.0 update to ArcheAge is set to take off on September 12th. Called "Heroes Awaken", the update will bring the political system online where players can take up leadership roles on servers that have direct impact on populations. In addition, upgraded crafting houses, guild expeditions and wars and the usual bevy of bug fixes and enhancements will be released with v2.0.
- The launch of Heroes Awaken will follow the ArcheAge Server Evolution (beginning Thursday, Sept. 10 at 1:00pm PDT (-7 GMT)). All ArcheAge servers will be unavailable for at least 48 hours as we begin the server merge and update the game.
- After the merge is complete, we will re-open all ArcheAge servers, welcome our newly evolved servers, AND launch our brand-new Fresh Start servers: Rangora and Morpheus! The launch of Heroes Awaken has been targeted for 1:00pm PDT (-7 GMT) on Saturday, Sept. 12, though its final date and time are subject to downtime duration and may be extended. Stay tuned to the forums for the latest timing announcements!
