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'm pretty sure there will be a wipe because of the ongoing dupe glitch. A good solution would be wiping at the Ecaflip patch (assuming they are released before launch) and giving us some time to grind up our characters before launch.

It maybe not be the best solution, but at least it's throwing us a bone in our way. Hopefully they'll release Rogues and Masqueraiders along with the Ecaflip so we can test them out to ensure that they aren't horribly underpowered or overpowered, but this is just wishful thinking.

This is what Derek said about Ecas, Rogues, and Masqs:

Eca's will be released in the next patch. Rogues and Masqueraiders won't be in the next patch. Also Derek said that details about the next patch should come very very soon in another thread. So next patch will be sometime next week most likely.

"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."

It's like Team Fortress 2 all over again!

This had to be a year with the 29th day, didn't it.

(We all called it though- last day of February!)

I figured it would be like Dofus, with Rogues and Masqueraiders being like the first 1.1 update. Something that'll tie in with the anime.

There is going to be a wipe at release no matter what, they've already said this. They are running an actual beta TEST, not a "play 2 months before any subscribers" event.

This means the game won't be able to celebrate its release anniversary for at least 4 years.

Sad face.
