We stated early on that we would not force a progression wipe for characters unless we were required to do so due to technical changes to Dauntless and our upcoming May 2nd patch brings about fundamental technical changes to progression and unlocks in Dauntless.
As a result of the upcoming changes to Dauntless, we will be doing a full progression wipe for all players. This is the first of two major patches coming to Dauntless in the coming months and both of them will bring full wipes due to major content and progression changes.
We will have more info in the coming weeks about wipe specifics and our reward structure for players that play and progress in between the two wipes.
While the wipe will reset all progression, appearance and in-game content (with the exception of promotional items such as PAX or partner flares and any account level items). Existing guilds will not be affected and all Founders Pack benefits/boosts/etc will be reset and begin again the first time people log back in post-wipe.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
