Screenshot Contest: Cheers to 50 Years

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by exploring the vast and glorious forests of Erenor! From White Arden to Hellswamp, Perinoor Ruins to Hasla (oh, there are more!), now’s your chance to experience them all. Whether your forest is recently established and man-made or is already an existing one within Erenor, there is enough beauty to go around so get ready for an adventure.

Share your picture-perfect moments in any of the forests of Erenor in our special ‘Earth Day Screenshot’ contest beginning April 22, 2020.

How to participate:

Take a screenshot of you within one of the many beautiful forests of Erenor! This forest can be well established such as White Arden or Gweonid Forest or you can make a forest of your own. Then share it with us on Twitter using the hashtag #gamigotrees and either #ArcheAge or #AAUnchained regarding the version you are playing.


One winner each from ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained will receive a Springsong Greenman Chroma costume as a reward. In the event there are no entries from one game, two screenshots from the same game will be selected.

Rules and Details:

The ArcheAge team will select and vote on winners that will be announced on April 30, 2020. The winner will be contacted on Twitter via Direct Messages and will be announced on Twitter, Steam and our Blog.
