    Letter from the Producer LIVE Part VIII Q&A Updates

    At the start of the broadcast, we'll be using this thread to post the Q&A from the Letter from the Producer LIVE Part VIII!

    Watch the stream live on Twitch or on YouTube.

    As we'll be updating this thread constantly throughout the event, make sure to reload every so often! We'll be posting the questions that Yoshida answers to Twitter and linking to this thread for the answers. However, please keep in mind that translations won't be occurring in real-time.

    Please note that after we create the full Q&A summary, it will be posted in the normal "Letter from the Producer" forum and this thread will be removed. While we will prepare the full Q&A summary after the event, there will not be subtitles made available for the video after the fact.

    See you back here at 5 a.m. (PDT) / 8 a.m. (EDT) / 12:00 (GMT)

    Q1: When is Open Beta and Early Access?

    A1: Beta Test phase 4 will run from August 17-19. Those who participated in the Beta Test phase 3 will be able to participate from August 16th. Early access will run from August 24th until the 26th with official service begins on August 27th, but the servers won't go down after Early Access, so you'll be able to play non-stop from August 24th.

    Q2: What type of restrictions (including the level cap) will be implemented in phase 4?

    A2: First, the level cap for phase 4 will be set to level 20. Therefore, game content will also be restricted to that which can be done within level 20. Please note that the content itself is exactly the same as the retail version of ARR.

    Q6: Is there anything you would like for us to test specifically in phase 4?

    A6: There are two things we would like you to test in phase 4.

    First, we are planning to do a stress test on the housing area (mainly to see how the graphics will stress the system). A housing area will be released in the La Noscea area during the stress test so please come check it out!

    Second, the PvP system. While the content was referred to as the “Coliseum” up until now, we have changed it and it is now known as the “Wolves’ Den.” We would like the players to test the basics of the PvP system (i.e. attack ranges, etc.). Therefore, the PvP-specific actions will not be available during the PvP test.

    Therefore, you will only be able to use your basic attacks at this time.
    However, you must be level 30 to enter the “Wolves’ Den.” Since the level cap of phase 4 is set to 20, we will need the assistance from our Legacy players to test the system out.
