ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained players can look forward to some new content and other updates coming, as revealed in the recent Kakao Now showcase. The updates that are coming from Kakao and XO Games will start at the end of March, with a new map ahead in June.

ArcheAge will be getting UI updates  by the end of this month, with March 31st the goal for this change. This month will also bring new Tier 3 Erenor Cloaks. That date is also when Kakao plans to release the next ArchePass, with a change in the monthly rewards that will include all new rewards, including the Steel Lightning mount for ArcheAge: Unlimited. If you get your hands on one, you’ll get normal boosts like to your speed, but this one has stealth that you can use to even sneak around while on your formidable mount. 

There will be another new ArchePass on April 28th, and Archeage: Unchained players can look forward to the Typhoon Drake mount. The ArchePass revamps came after community feedback essentially found the current system a step down from Legacy and otherwise kind of boring, so they’re making the rewards more dynamic and diverse. There will be more updates to the pass this year too.

There will be more reveals on update soon, but we also know that there will be a brand new map launching in June. The Great Prairie of the West is the name of the new map and it's location is where the Firran lived before their exodus in the Great Migration. This will expand the lore starting with what happened a long time ago, but you will be able to see traces of their history and their past in the lands. There’s no more info on the map, but expect more on this later in the spring.

See more over at ArcheAge.
