Q.) How much will the Founder’s Pack cost?
A.) There are 3 tiers available. Wanderer tier for £26.99 / €31.99 / $34.99, Explorer tier for £39.99 / 50.99 / $54.99, and Captain tier for £49.99 / €59.99 / $64.99.
Q.) Do I have to purchase a Founder’s Pack to play the Closed Beta for Worlds Adrift?
A.) Yes, the Founder’s Packs are intended to be limited edition purchases to get access to the Closed Beta along with exclusive items. In Early Access, cheaper, base versions of the game will be available too with a reduced price to reflect the lesser additional content provided compared to the Founder’s Packs. Please note that premium Early Access versions are also planned.
Q.) Do I have to purchase all three Founder’s Packs to get all the benefits?
A.) No. Purchasing the Explorer Founder’s Pack will give you all the benefits from the Wanderer Founder’s Pack, and purchasing the Captain Founder’s Pack will give you all the benefits from both of the previous tiers.
Q.) Why are there three different Founder’s Packs?
A.) We understand that many different players have different budgets. We wanted to offer a wide range of options at different price points to accommodate that. We also felt it was important to recognise your support during Closed Beta, which is why each pack contains exclusive content only available during this phase. The exclusive items will not be obtainable after Closed Beta ends.
Q.) I have purchased a Founder’s Pack for Worlds Adrift, what happens next?
A.) Whether you purchase a Founder’s Pack via our Store or Steam you are purchasing a Steam Key.
If you purchase via our Store you will receive your key via email from Xsolla/Bossa. You will then need to redeem this key on Steam.
If you purchase via Steam the usual process applies.
Your account will automatically be granted Closed Beta access when it begins and access to the Island Creator if you do not already have it. Depending on the pack you have purchased, some of your other goodies may be delivered later (Early Access).
Cosmetic items will be sent to your Stash Inventory (a separate tab in the game) this inventory persists through death and only special items can be placed inside.
The Twitch items, Art Book, Original Soundtrack and WorldsAdrift.com Founder's Profile Icon - will all be available by navigating to your Worlds Adrift installation folder. Right click on Worlds Adrift in your Steam Library and select Properties > Local Files > Browse Local Files. They will be located in a folder called ‘Extras.’
Please note, any items in the packs with a single (*) will be provided at a later date.
Q.) What if I want to play in a different region to the one I am purchasing the Founder’s Pack from?
A.) Currently, the only method to switch which server you are playing on is to delete your character and make a new one - please see this article for more information. We highly recommend connecting to the closest server to your home region for an optimal experience.

Note: these items do not give you an advantage over other players and are for visual flair only!
Q.) Will my progress be reset during the Closed Beta?
A.) Yes! We’re aware this is a painful experience and will try to minimise the frequency of this occurring as much as possible. However, there will be at least one reset of your progress and the world during Closed Beta as we move into Early Access. This is only something we do as an absolute necessity.
Please note: progress and items will not be restored as a result of this reset. However, Lockbox and Founder’s Pack items will be unaffected by any resets.
