Fantastic news, everyone! Our Beta journey is almost over. Today, Square Enix and Ankama confirm that WAKFU will launch worldwide on Wednesday, February 29, 2012.

Published by Square Enix, Inc. and developed by Ankama, WAKFU is an all-new, tactical turn-based MMORPG that will be launching worldwide as a free download in February 29, 2012 and include with it a large amount of gameplay content to experience at no cost. In addition, an optional monthly subscription fee of $6.00 will give players access to premium content, and a microtransaction-based store will allow users to purchase cosmetic items

To ensure that we provide you with the best launch experience possible, we will be organizing a Stress Test Weekend starting tomorrow, for the North American server, NOX. Join us throughout the entire weekend as we host several interesting in-game events and win unique items!

Featuring an amazing anime art style, players can choose from 12 unique character classes and engage in rebuilding a world lost in chaos through strategic combat, crafting, and even national politics!

Thank all of you for your loyalty, and we hope that the release version will exceed your expectations and your wishes for WAKFU. See you soon in-game!

I can't help but smirk at the fact that it ended up being on the very last day of February.

Does this imply no wipe will be occurring?!

I'm assuming the same thing as the Christmas and Halloween items will occur. Where they will be given as a package upon release in your mail slot at the top right.

Wish they would give us more details about the "unique items". Hope the level requirements to get the unique items are not high since i haven't been playing since the first 5 days of OB since there hasn't been much to explore and also the fact that I am assuming a wipe will occur. But overall hope these items will actually be unique and will never be issued again. Also hope it isn't the "Candy Pack" since that seems consumable, and I want something that isn't. But if it is consumable and isn't reissued every again and isn't bound to your character then they might end up like the limited edition consumables that are on Runescape. Mwahahaha. But if they are limited edition and are not binding then expect whatever gifts you get to be a high price in a year or so. These gifts will be like the limited editions in Runescape. jking.

Start time for the start of the events will also be appreciated.

@Deathbreak - It seems that may be a possibility, unless it will be items that are linked to your account or something.

My question is that it says 'Our beta journey is almost over'... does that mean that the beta will NOT carry into release? or that it will be closing down within the next few weeks/days? Details would be VERY nice, xP

So...wipe? No wipe? That's the real important question here!
