Good news, Arks! We are extending the Closed Beta Test and giving you a few more hours to experience the game on Sunday, February 9th. We are still actively working on our servers, so the service will still need to be interrupted this Saturday, February 8th at midnight, 12:00 AM (PST). Servers will undergo maintenance from morning until late afternoon on Sunday and will be open again from 5:00 PM (PST) to 12:00 AM (PST).
During these additional hours on Sunday, we will be adding URGENT QUESTS to the schedule. Completing those will also count towards your requirements for acquiring the Closed Beta Test’s Special Rewards.
Players who partake on Sunday evening will also receive 10 Casino Coin passes as a reward for being so patient.
