Originally launched in Nov. 2002 but shut down three years later (in Dec. 2005) Turbine announced that Asheron’s Call 2 has returned!
Turbine has opened up a new server for anyone who has an active Asheron’s Call subscription to play Asheron’s Call 2 for free! Although the devs would have loved to revisit some of their old characters with you, they were not able to bring over any of your old characters. They do, however, present this new Asheron’s Call 2 server, Dawnsong, to all active Asheron’s Call players with a paid subscription or who purchase an ACTD retail key and subscribe.
What does this mean to you?
Below is a link to the Asheron’s Call 2 client installer so you may get the game up and running. This will provide access to the new Dawnsong server. Although the server has passed Turbine's initial tests, they have a lot of monitoring and tweaking to do to the game environment and want to ensure that the players understand that. This game service will be provided as a beta for all players with an active Asheron’s Call account. That said, the game server is currently up and running. So join Turbine for a nostalgic trip back to a Dereth where the golden age was not interrupted.
If you are an active paid AC1 subscriber there will be no need to create a new account for Asheron’s Call 2; you will simply log into the Asheron’s Call 2 game using your current Asheron’s Call credentials.
Please note that this is a beta, the environment might have some known issues that Turbine will be working on. The friend’s list functionality, for example, will not be available when this new server goes into beta. As can happen during a beta release, the server might be taken down for maintenance or troubleshooting at some inconvenient times if deemed necessary.
