  • looks awesome!

    I'm glad to see that the features that they have promised such as the Seiges and Naval things are actually working for the most part.  Its really good to finally see a developer generate a feature complete AAA MMO such as this one.  I mean granted we have had some pretty fluid games lately like Rift, but from what I hear its pretty contentless and nothing new.

    I'm excited for this to finally be released in the West so that we can have a high budget game with all the amazing features such as Housing, Naval, and Seige.  This seems like its going to be partially what darkfall or vanguard was supposed to be.

    What I like most about ArcheAge is the overall balance between combat and social mechanics. Granted, it looks heavy in PvP / Siege but on the other end of the spectrum, crafting and immersion seem to be getting just as much attention, not just an after thought.

    Player jumping on and riding along on another player's mount at 00:21?

    Awesome.

    Also the rope climbing scene looked very 'physically sound'.

    They should get rid of the AA logo from the sails of those ships at the end though. It's kind of strangling ma immerzhuns. I hope that is just a beta thing.

    To be honest the features that you mention have been working since the start of CBT2. What we are seeing now is a final push in getting the animation and combat working more fluidly. As for DarkFall, well DarkFall is full sandbox and AA is not a sandbox game even thogh it has some feature that are close.

    The game looks awesome but having followed some similarly ambitious games over the years I am still skeptical as to their ability to deliver the game they want.

     Agreed though I'm hoping it's a sign that the images you upload for created factions/Expeditionary Forces can be shown on the sails of your boats.  That would be pretty nice.

    Now that AA is on the public radar I'm glad they keep releasing new videos.  I am so psyched for this game!

    Just not worth my time anymore.

     I'm not a fan of ganking either.  I think PvP should be between two entities looking for it.

    Though AA is going to be a PvP game the way you choose your abilities is something that could tone the typical imbalance down.  You're not just picking one class out of six, you have a combination of three skillsets to have out of a possible ten.  There will be combinations that are better at PvP sure but you're not pigeoned-holed depending if you want to PvP or PvE.  You should be able to have both.  You will be able to swap out the skillsets as well but I don't know the specifics of that.

    Just not worth my time anymore.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up.    Remember Age of Conan?    Many people were excited about all the climbing they would do in it also.

    This game NEEDS international servers right from start.

    It would give the game a chance to become something really massive.

Why are games so boring X-clones these days and can't be more like X? Im going back to grind repeatable tasks in X and hone my skills with some dice roles, waiting 14 months for the next paid content patch."

    Cant wait for this game to come out in EU. To bad its going to   be (probably )2013. Oh well, i will have GW2, SWTOR, TERA and loots of PS3 games to keep me busy till then.

    Played: SWG-FFXI-EQ2-Aion

    Anticipated in order of Hype:
    ArcheAge
    GW2
    TERA
    SWTOR

    Not enough info, but looks promising:
    Blade & Soul

    I just hope this game doesn't become darkfall 2 for me, oh look you could do things in PvE but you are going to be constantly ganked even from the starter areas... but in honest it looks good and I have been looking for a good sandbox game. Just give us a basic flagging system like  WoW's and im fine. I don't play MMO's for PvP, I could care less aobut it my self but everyone enjoys something different. Problem is everytime you have FFA pvp it just becomes griefville even the guy looking for PvP isn't realizing it but its still frustrating.

    You will not be ganked at the starting area. This the starting zones will have anti-pk rulesets. in other words, its not FFA until u get a boat or (maybe) an airship to the northern continent.

     

    CBT3 starts 24th of May. official.

     Wherabout did You find 2013? Ive read something about 6 months after Korean release

    Well i thought since they upgraded their engine from CryEngine2 to CryEngine3 and that the game itself has been in development since what(2009 or 2010) while games like GW2, SWTOR... have been in development quite longer, that seemed reasonable that it would come out next year.



    It would be great of course if this game came out next year in EU, but i have my doubts. On ArcheAge Wikipedia site it says that Korean release is 2012, but doesn't say which month. I doubt that is going to be early in 2012, because its way to early in development.

     Production started around 2006.  They are implementing CryEngine3 for OB and beyond but the transition is pretty smooth from 2 to 3, I will find the article.

    Unless the linked quote is from a XLGames employee the 6 months is a "typical" time it takes to get a game from the east to the west.  With that in mind this is from Jake Song in an interview from Massively.com, Nov. 2nd 2010:

    "Do you have a targeted release window?



    We do not have fixed dates for any market, but would like to commercialize in Korea during next year and expand into other overseas markets as early as possible."

    It would be great if they managed to release it in first half of 2012, i just hope they want  rush it and release it to early or unfinished(like quite a few other MMOs were). I would rather see them to take their time to polish it. Sort of  like RIFT was polished on release, completely bug free(or almost).

    My guess is either 2 factions or no factions with same race class combinations.  Now - if Dark Age of Camelot 2 bought the graphics engine for this game - we'd have something truly epic.

    http://www.aaportal.net/en/world-of-archeage.html

    According to this there are two factions.

    Also here is another bit of information we can use about factions from an interview with Jake Song.


    You mentioned that the other two continents would be at war with each other? Will this lend itself to the races being split into two separate factions fighting each other? Also, although there is a designated player-conquer continent, to what extent will PvP be prevalent among these two warring faction’s continents?

    When a server is opened for the first time, the Nuian (led by the Nuians, a human race in the western continent) alliance, and Hariharan (led by the Hariharans, a human race in the eastern continent) alliance are in hostile states. In the enemy’s continent, players cannot be protected. However, we will design it so that certain races of Nuian alliance can be separated out and become friendly or neutral with Hariharan Alliance, depending on players’ behavior. PvP between players from the same alliance will be allowed in a certain zones or situation. Even so, it will be treated as a crime and can be put on trial.

    yeah in short, there are at least 3 factions - the preset ones like humans + elves vs ferres+warborne vs pirates, which are all subject of change as the players advance their server.
