They finally killed it.

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the end of our support for Asheron's Call and Asheron’s Call 2, and will close both services on January 31st, 2017.

This decision did not come easy, and we know this is disappointing for many of you. This game is a labor of love, and it's not easy for us to bring it to an end.

We have had a phenomenally long run; one of the longest in the world of MMORPGs, and that in and of itself is a spectacular feat. We are proud of our legacy, and the entire Asheron's Call team has been honored to adventure with you for nearly twenty years. We thank you very much for being a part of it.

It’s been an amazing run. You’ve done Asheron Realaidain proud.

Between now and January 31st, 2017, the game will remain available to play, completely free, for any player currently with an account. New account creation will be disabled.

If you have any questions, please visit support.wbgames.com



I got bored a few months ago and Aluviah Fireheart talked me into playing AC again. The Darktide server got nuked so we played around on one of the white servers. Actually ran into a few old DT people, WillofStone, Manipulator, Shalifa (always caught Manip and Shalifa afk) and some other random antis from back in the day. Oh well, was fun while it lasted.

I guess thats the last hope for an Asheron's Call 3 dashed :(

Some great memories from a great game, still my favourite mmo of all time.

Imagines Officer Trophar unsheathing his hollow katar outside the Uziz taven before embarking on his final patrol up the Uziz high street and into the sunset, never to return.

Kotaku has an article about it:

So they got rid of the Darktide server, eh?

I'll post in Qyan's Den.

Holy crap, I just came back to see if my old Darktide guild was still around after hearing that they finally shutdown the Asheron servers. Can't believe all you folks are still here. Not sure if anyone will remember, but I was Legend - original gimpy character, my main ended up being an OG Mage Black Ice.

My claim to fame was that I was the first buff bot for the clan when we got our first mansion. :P

Anyways, hope your well. I had a lot of fun times with you all.

Sad to hear, but it deserved to retire. :)
It lasted 18 years... That is quite some age for an MMO :)

I just wish, they would have taken the whole AC 1 source-history and just re-released it with revamped graphics and leaving all those necessary bugs that made it so great. AC2 was a bad try to go mainstream :(

Anything else you guys are playing these days?

Path of Exile mostly, waiting for a another good game, but they seem to be a rarity these days!

At least PoE has constant new content =D>

Pretty amazing times.

You don't see me, but I am also watching, waiting and looking forward to the next game TFK decides to take on.

Hope everyone is doing well :)

Me too. I always loved ACs story. So very different from anything else. :cry:

I did my last log out at our mansion where we all used to have fun:
