    AC Initiates Status [Read the first post]

    Please refer to the following message from the Initiates team:

    Hello Initiates,

    We have taken the decision to place AC Initiates in a continued state of maintenance during the holiday period.

    The reasoning for this is to minimize the effect from outages to your experience during this time, as well as to allow us work on ensuring the technical stability of the platform.

    Although AC Initiates will be in maintenance and thus unavailable to access via the web or console browsers, all gold Initiates chests are now unlocked in game for online players. You will receive an in game error message when attempting to access the ACI website from in-game due to the maintenance. This is expected behaviour, and will be addressed in a future update. However, you will have unrestricted access to all the chests with the golden ACI crest and the rewards within them.

    Please note that you won't be able to access the gold Initiates chests if you are playing offline.

    Finally, we want to thank you for your continued passion and feedback. We hope you have a pleasant holiday period.

    The AC Initiates team.

    Give it a few minutes then try again. The process of unlocking the chests is currently in progress.

    As for your other query, please contact Support about this issue as it is not Initiates related.

    When are these chests unlocking? My wife just tried opening one and the game said she needed initiates level 10 to do it.

    Thank you, EscoBlades, for the update!

    JRBabineau, per the post above yours, the process of unlocking the chests is currently in process.

    EDIT: Now, if we could only get the Companion App team to do the same thing!

    If the app is not necessary to unlock the chest, how about you make it so forever instead of having us to leave the pc/console to unlock a stupid chest?

    Will the chest be permanently unlocked - even after the holidays?
