Will the loot stay after official release?

★★★★★ Novice

I have seen some people started to grind the gears in game during the demo. Some even believe these gears will be kept after official release. Seriously, is that true?

All progress during the demo (both VIP and open) will be wiped upon launch.

To elaborate the VIP demo and public demo will retain your progress between them. However on Feb 15th, the launch will have a clean slate. That is to say its not even possible to retain the data from the demo even if EA wanted to since the demo is based on an older version of the game that wont be used for the official launch, as well as the fact the the demo skips us 10 levels so that we can get straight into the game at full tilt (that includes our gear). The official game will in all likeliness start us off at level 1. Having level 10+ gear off the bat in a game that doesn't restrict equipping such high level gear would wreck more than a quarter of the progression.

 

In short, 100% no, nothing stays, clean wipe.

I was hoping to try another Javelin during the the public demo.

You are in luck.. ALL of the javelins are now unlocked and will be (at least for us VIP demo players) next week. That is also official.
