The January Update is approaching ever closer, and today we want to talk with you about how Elite Founders will get their early access into Gotham Divided and give you information on what will be our final planned wipe of Protector data.
First of all, we will be performing one final planned wipe on January 29th. As with our prior wipe, the following changes will take place:
- All protector names will remain.
- All Protector and Champion levels will be set back to level 1.
- All purchased Champions will be wiped.
- All purchased Costumes will be wiped.
- All gained Crisis Coins and Merit will be wiped.
- If you have purchased one of our Founders Packs, you will have all of the items from your Founders Pack re-instated after the wipe. This includes Champions, Costumes and Crisis Coins.
- If you purchased Crisis Coins via the IC Store or from GameStop’s Crisis Coin cards, those Crisis Coins will be automatically re-granted to you after the wipe.
- The Limited Edition Holiday costumes will be temporarily re-enabled after the wipe so that you may re-buy them with your Crisis Coins.
After this, we have no additional planned wipes. We will also stop issuing regular Crisis Coin grants. It’s all for keeps now!
Now, many Elite Founders have been asking how we are going to handle the early access period for Gotham Divided. Here are the days you’ll be able to play before other Beta players gain access, and how you can get access to the map even if you aren’t an Elite Founder.
- Once the game is available after our update on January 29th, Gotham Divided will only be accessible by all Founders. This early access period will continue until the morning of Friday, January 31st, Eastern time (-5 GMT).
- In addition to the early access, we’re including a bonus gift of 4,000 merit to all Elite Founders after the game is available on January 29th. Spend it on Stolen Powers or Amplifiers, or bank it to buy another Champion!
If you aren’t a Founder, you can win access to Gotham Divided through special code giveaways on our social media (http://www.facebook.com/infinitecrisis or http://www.twitter.com/infinitecrisis) or from our community streamers! Stay tuned on January 29th to win access and play early!
If anyone has any questions feel free to post them in the thread below and we’ll be happy to answer them!
We can’t wait to battle with you all on Gotham Divided! See you in the Lost Sectors soon!
