ArcheAge is an MMORPG in from Korean company XLGames and published in the NA and EU by Trion Worlds. Players enter a fantasy world and start play on one of two continents: Nuia (Elves), and Harihara (Ferres). From there, everything else is up to you, from what character you play, to where you go, and why. ArcheAge promises to remove the restrictions that have hampered former MMORPGs, especially concerning character classes and skills. Go where you will, do what you want, be the character you want to be.
The ArcheAge forum has the latest update notes that contain the fun...or curious...or interesting information about how to upgrade your underwear. Other features...if you can get past the skivvies thing ... include a new world boss and a pair of new events, ArcheDelivery and Guild Unity.
The ArcheAge holiday season is set to kick off on Wednesday, December 21st and will run through Tuesday, January 10th. During the festival, players can take off on a series of festival quests to search out a winter ghost, praying to the maiden and building snowmen in Mistmarrow.
ArcheAge's 3.0 Update, Revelation, had a rocky start in the NA region. EU seemed largely problem-free, but the NA servers proved a bit of a bear to get online and thus the actual launch of Revelation didn't happen until Sunday AM. We've spent the past couple days playing a new Dwarf, and have some thoughts on 3.0 and the current state of AA.
The Trion Worlds team has announced that due to issues deploying the ArcheAge expansion, Revelation, North American servers are offline and will hopefully be back up by 12 pm Pacific / 3 pm Eastern if all goes according to plan. The EU release of Revelation seems to have been successfully deployed.
ArcheAge's next big update hits this weekend on December 10th with the launch of 3.0 - Revelation. Not only are there going to be brand new fresh start servers, but there are two new races, five new zones, and major changes to the marketplace based on player feedback. Read on for the full scoop.
