Just want to tell you that since at least three days ArcheAge managed to keep the same level as Aion in Korea in terms of playeactivity  now. Making it the 3rd most played MMORPG in Korea. Only NCSoft MMOs ever could keep that up for more than a week or sometimes even just hours in these top rankings. Yes its free open beta but the steady interest is important to note.

If anything I'd rather see it not being published and thus supported by NCSoft overseas as XlGames simply appear to be a highly potential competition in their home market already. On the other hand if Archage keeps it up they could turn in most of their investment within half a year and I see chances opening up for XLGames publishing AA on their own in the West, like NCSoft does or BlueHole tried.

I hope not. Anyone who actually likes NCSoft has never suffered through having a game published by them taken away. They're pretty dodgey too and are always getting kicked out of game coventions for being a-holes or whatever.

SOE has EverQuest Next eventually coming out, and EQNext and ArcheAge are both being declared as high-fantasy sandbox hybrid style games.  I couldn't see SOE doing publishing for ArcheAge, because they would be trying to promote a game by XLGames, while at the same time trying to promote their next edition to the EverQuest IP (which is more lucrative).

 

Seems like a conflict of interest, and I doubt XLGames would opt to gimp their western release like that, with ArcheAge being SOE's bastard child, second to their EQ IP.

 

 

EQNext info is all rumors the truth is while people think it will be a sandbox game Smed himself said it will have the same amount of classes as EQ1.  So how does that work with sandbox ?   Also EQ, EQ2, Vanguard are all pretty much the same style of fantasy MMO add in Dragons Prophet and thats another fantasy MMO for SOE so they obviously don't care about having multiple games of the same type.

Smed never called it a sandbox, he said that every EQ player expect there to be raids, implying that ofc there is going to be that in EQnext as well....only thing he said was, that it will have sandbox features.  am looking forward to see how each of these 2 titles will be recieved.

EverQuest Next is “largest sandbox MMO ever designed,” says SOE’s John Smedley

 

Lot of other false statements in this thread. Does anyone read any more?

 

I hope people dont get hyped thinking Smed means a traditional sandbox MMO.   For my money the only aspect of EQN that will be sandboxish is the open world.   If people think its gonna be a pvp game or something they're in for a huge let down im sure it will have pvp but it is going to be a PVE game with PVP not a PVP game with PVE.   With that said going PVP with that game engine is gonna be epic hundreds of people with 0 lag.

I imagine they will flip a few bucks selling the domain name(s) though - perhaps that was their original leverage.  They could also hold the domains hostage and/or threaten to sell it to a gold farming network, heh.

 

Actually would not work as I guess ArcheAge is copyrighted and the owner of the copyright could simply claim the domain

He did indeed say it was going to be a sandbox.

Smedley claimed Next will be the “largest sandbox MMO” created to date, according to EQ2 Wire. “What we’re building is something that we will be very proud to call EverQuest,” Smedley said. “It will be the largest sandbox style MMO ever designed with the same exciting content delivered in a new way.

NCwest doesn't exist anymore from what I remember, it's all just NCsoft, regardless of region now and ever since that they've been pretty well off. They were silly to try and label the western branch of the company independently from the main HQ. I still believe that unless XLgames publishes the game here themselves, NCsoft is the best choice. I think En Masse would be a horrible idea, and SOE is a pretty good candidate but I don't see that happening..Definitely hoping Nexon wasn't who they've chosen, I don't have anything against them, but they don't have the pull that NCsoft does right now. With GW2 being such a massive success, AA would be a great alternative.

Nothing wrong with a themepark having a large open world or pvp in the open world (level restricted, flagged for it, etc to provide safety for the ones that dont wish to fight). A happy medium between the two should be tempted. Sick and tired of one or the other, hell slap them together and make a good freaking game.

But yeah do believe it will be a sandbox, they have been wanting one sicne SWG times, and actualy are working on 2 others.

The game will be released in US/EU before the end of the year, so the announcement is going to come a lot sooner, most likely this month.

Damn I LOVE this poster.

 

Hopefully hes correct. Im not exactly sure why Im choosing to believe him, but I am. /shrug

 

It sounds feasible, the launch date at the end of the year for NA. If it does, im taking a month or two off of work. Going to concoct a massive story about a family death and fight for the estate of the 'dead' family member.

 

It worked once before at another company I worked for during the launch of craptastic SWTOR... :)

You will either be the most loved person on this forum or the most hated. depending if you are just trolling.

Well since Jake Song has a strong NCSoft connection, it's very plausible that it could be.

DAMN YOU DMKANO...........YOUR DOING IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

lmao.......Your quotes drive me insane sometimes mate. I believe you have an 'inside' source regarding AA, and you know a few things most of us dont.

But the not knowing part is driving me up a wall...

 

I hope your right an announcement is imminent.

 

I actually believe you...

Seeing that they allready announced a russian publisher, it only shows the sad state of MMOs in the western countries.

As long as it never goes to Bioware/EA or SOE I can sleep well at night.
