DOFUS 2.0 Launches; Version 1.29 Still Playable

DOFUS 2.0 has officially launched today, which means players are welcome to head over to the new Zatoïshwan server and enjoy double experience and drops for the next two weeks. You can download the client for the free-to-play MMO on the game's site.

While today marks the start of a new chapter for DOFUS, Ankama has also decided to leave version 1.29 playable and open to everyone since the team feels 2.0 isn't completely ready for to take on a full migration of the community. This means you can currently play both 1.29 and 2.0 with the same account. You can read the full post by Ankama co-founder Emmanual Darras after the jump.

DOFUS 1.29 + DOFUS 2.0

First things first, welcome to the new DOFUS community site!

As the title of this news might suggest, we have a very important announcement to make!

On December 2, DOFUS 2.0 was supposed to replace the current version of DOFUS.

However, we feel that version 2.0 is not yet ready and that it is too early to completely migrate the community over to it.

As such, we have decided to leave 1.29 playable and open to everyone, and to launch 2.0 in parallel.

How will that work?
We will officially launch DOFUS 2.0 the morning of 2 December, as planned, but only on new servers that will have doubled XP and drops for 2 weeks.

You will be able to play DOFUS 1.29 and DOFUS 2.0 with the same account.

Then what?

Don’t worry! DOFUS 2.0 is progressing rapidly, and performance is improving every day. The entire team is working extremely hard make this first version a success that will appeal to everyone. We are doing everything we can to achieve that goal!

From December 2 you'll be able to move in to DOFUS 2.0 on new servers with new characters, when you want, without any obligation.

Then, when everything is in order, we will encourage you to join DOFUS 2.0, with new features and new content - of which Frigost forms a part - currently being created.

These last minute changes have, of course, led to other changes. Services related to Ogrines have been pushed back because they mainly concerned characters migrating from DOFUS to DOFUS 2.0. Ogrines have been pushed back a little, and we’ll talk more about them soon. The Premium House will only be present on DOFUS 2.0.

Mea culpa

Now, on behalf of Ankama, I would like to apologize for these last minute changes and the stress that our initial decision must have caused many of you as the release date approaches.

Today, the proposed solution should - we hope - keep everyone happy. Those of you who want to continue playing 1.29 and move smoothly on to DOFUS 2.0 later, those of you who love DOFUS 2.0 and want to have the opportunity to discover all-new, unexplored servers where former DOFUS players can meet up with current players and newcomers. This solution should also fully satisfy Ankama’s DOFUS team who will have the opportunity to evolve and improve DOFUS 2.0 week after week and calmly prepare long-awaited new content!

The dates and key stages to come:

December 2: Launch of a new server: Zatoïshwan

December 15: 4 new subscription pets on DOFUS 1 and DOFUS 2.0

See you soon and thanks in advance for your understanding!
