    For the first time I am intrested in this game. Loves LotR and Rift. Would still be playing Rift if it wasnt for all the pentagrams everywhere.

    I can't believe what I just read. I coldn't have asked for anything better than Trion. Being i played Rift for 2 years. They have the best service in the business. I can't wait.

    Awesome! This game moved closer to the top of my list... too many MMOs too little time is my new monicker :-)

     wow best piece of mmo-releated info ive read in years. So no gpotato, gtomato or other f2p company that sells skill resets for $50. Still cant believe this is true :D

     

    Its like they let us chose eu/us publishers, i doubt many people would say no to Trion publishing Archeage (or any other game for that matter), as long as they stay ... well, current Trion :p 

     

    really really fantastic news for all of us who were following archeage and quite frankly, if i were to chose which company gets to publish archeage, id give my vote to trion in a heartbeat :)

    Best news for me in years.  Hands down.  That was very unexpected.

    Seems like it would compete heavily with Rift, makes for an odd couple.  I'm glad though that it has a publisher.

    Not sure about that, but still. It would not compete less if someone else published it.

    LotRO? Turbine is the company that made LotRO

    It's really funny how Trion is probably one of the 'only' company that the majority of MMORPG.com members actually praise, even non-players and ex-players in comparison to other MMO Companies. But it's true though, Trion is indeed a great company, and XLGame have made a very good choice. I'm looking forward to playing ArcheAge on the NA server!

    Mind blown

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Possibly .. Rift is a themepark, ArcheAge is a sandpark (ie hybrid) though.  The competition would be far less severe than say SOE publishing ArcheAge and having EQ Next (sandpark) compete with ArcheAge (sandpark). 

    The 2 (theme vs sand) audiences will ultimately cross paths, so I wouldn't be surprised if there was some package type deal involved .. sub to Rift, get free cashshop currency to spend in ArcheAge, perhaps?  Or buy cashshop points for ArcheAge and get complementary time on Rift ..

    Good good, Trion proved themselves an excellent publisher but i wonder why is Turkey listed seperately? Almost always Turkey is in EU region and servers in MMOs. I wonder this means seperate servers and service or it's just for clarity purposes.

    Man, out of all publishers, TRION Worlds, that's amazing news.

    TRION Worlds is such a great company that is very close with its players and always strives to put out new updates.

  • azzamasinazzamasin Butler, OHPosts: 3,058Member Uncommon
    Yay, Great, Trion....King of all things Clone.  Rest assuredly this game just signed it's own death warrant.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    That's what everyone said about Rift too, and here we are, 2 years later, with Rift having a pretty big following and good player retention.

    I hope they make it P2P just as a filter for jackassery. Knowing TRION you will probably get the first few levels of the game F2P just to test the waters a few months after release. They are good about that kind of thing.

    Either way, this company is great, have had nothing but good experiences with them, even with some of the problems Rift has.

    Wow, very cool.  I didn't even realize that Trion was a publisher as well as a developer.  Hopefully this doesn't make them turn into evil baby-eating monsters like EA.  image

    Rift
    Played:

    Game just went from a could miss, to a must buy. Trion is by far the best in the business atm.
  • VyethVyeth Fayetteville, NCPosts: 1,459Member

    BOOM! Great news!

    I respect Trion.. Not a fan boi of Rift, played it, and enjoyed it.. Jumped in Defiance beta.. Loved it.. End of Nations? Not my cup of tea but tried it anyway.. For what it was attempting to do, not bad..

    ...

    Archeage?

     

    Lets do it..

    RIFT didn't really do it for me, but I gotta say, TRION's support is one of the best out there atm. I'm glad that AA will be published by TRION! This might mean a good future for the game...
