ArcheAge's Akasch Invasion, Gunslinger Skillset Are Now Live

Gamigo's ArcheAge was updated today with its latest content patch, Akasch Invasion, bringing with it new quests and a zone to explore. Additionally, the MMO released the new Gunslinger skillset, bringing rifles to the world.

The update, which is free and a shift away from the way paid Garden of the Gods expansion was released last year, brings with it a new zone for ArcheAge players to explore. As Gamigo puts it, the latest area, Ipnya Ridge will have players from "all factions" join together to "face their foes in the Akasch Invasion."

"In the western parts of Auroria, an ancient enemy emerges in the Ipnya Ridge. Players can explore this new zone and join forces with players from all factions to face their foes in the Akasch Invasion. Players can also explore a new chronicle quest: The Nuon Dragon War, and unveil the truth behind the sudden changes in the Karkasse Ridgelands."

Also coming with the expansion is the Gunslinger skillset, allowing players to try their hands with a variety of new ranged attacks. The Gunslinger brings with it powerful attacks, debuffs and more to "give you an edge in combat." It is important to note that while the main content of the expansion is free for both versions of AA, the Gunslinger will cost players in ArcheAge Unchained, costing players at minimum $15.99 (though this also includes Fres Start server access, for what it's worth). 

The new update is live today on ArcheAge and ArcheAge Unchained. To see it in action, check out the trailer embedded above.
