    Not if the game has old school depth. I was still learning new stuff about the original EQ long past level 30. Archeage is suppossed to have this kind of depth to it.

     

    As for Trion Worlds and XLGames working together I think they made an excellent choice. Other publishers like NCSoft, SOE or EA would try to take over the game sooner or later. Trion Worlds will probably give them the room to breath they need to make Archeage everything it should be in the west. This is actually great news. I may have not particularly liked Trion's past games but as a company they have the right attitude. Trion and Archeage are a perfect match in my honest opinion.

    I wonder how much of the world/content/whatever will be completely obsoleted at level cap ...

    I think this marks the first time in MMORPG.com history that the entire site agrees on something

    I honestly thought they were going NCsoft lol. Anyways,  I'm looking forward to a beta for this. I'm still on the fence about Archeage since I haven't played it. But from every video it's like "OMG that's cool!" and then "Really?.....hmm" lol hope they have a good english launch. Good luck XL

    WOW,

     

    wow.  just wow!

     

    in my wildest dreams for archeage, i was hoping for one of two companies to get pub rights:  turbine or trion.  and blam.  i CANNOT wait for this game to really hit the western world.  i haven't been this excited about a MMO game since ff11 was announced.

    I thought RIFTs gameplay was lame so I paid zero attention to it, but I am heartened by all the positive posts about Trion on this thread.  Thanks guys!  This is exciting.

    Depends on how interesting the so called tutorial is. Why can't the tutorial be considered part of the game just like the later levels.

    They just need to make it interesting.

    Oh wow...great move going with Trion - Rift is a sold game but having Archeage will round them out nicely with an excellent sandbox. Can't wait!!

    Currently playing SWTOR and it's MUCH better than it was at launch.

    He said like a tutorial, not 30 levels of tutorial. I think it makes perfect sense in that today's MMO gamer is used to directed content, so they've designed the opening experience in such a way to explore the options available to the player (like a themepark). We've seen all the complaints about Age of Wushu, and it's lack of a guided experience in the beginning.

    A decade ago MMO players were used to jumping in and making their own way, that isn't the case today.

    I agree 100% and this is the one thing that really, and I mean REALLY turns me off about AA - at least based on hands on from others.

    Hopefully we can skip it all starting at level 2 and not be ridiculously gimped.

     You might say that WoW has 90 levels of tutorial until you get to the end game which is where people ultimately want to be.  30 levels seems reasonable to me.  And GW2 end game started at level 1. so i am guessing you prefer archage to be 100% sandbox...which i don't think it is.

    I think as a publisher trion will make it better.If they dont screw up like ea,activision etc
  • ionxeelionxeel WarsawPosts: 304Member Uncommon
    Woot! What a pleasant surprice! Go Trion! Best customer service I ever experienced, as well as the level of polish they put into Rift.

    Glad XLgames went with Trion ! No better company to conduct business with!

    After hearing that Trion is going to be a part of this, i might actually consider trying the game out now.

    The artists that made this game are to be congratulated.  As an artist myself, I am greatly impressed with the beauty of this game.  In some cases, it is breathtakingly beautiful.  I don't think I've seen any other game achieve better, and certainly not surpassed what the artists for Archeage have done.  If my computer can run it with that much beauty pouring forth from the screen, I will be doubly impressed.

     

    I am so looking forward to this game.  Not to get on the hype bandwagon, but it looks good....DAMN GOOD.  Waiting is painful, like being 7 years old and Christmas two weeks away painful.
