Archeage 2 officially in the works

Is your wallet ready?

ArcheAge 2 is more than a rumor now – it’s a sure thing. The news comes according to Korean website Ruliweb, which reports that Jake Song has put together a team of 50 devs to work on the Unreal Engine 5 sequel under the XLGAMES and Kakao banners.

    My wallet is ready to ignore this, which is a shame because I love Archeages class system and animations.

    But seriously, the original was a scam.  Lawsuit aside, the game was never anything more than a money grab thinly veiled with shiny bits.  No reason to expect a sequel to be better.

    I enjoy the originals unchained server but the main servers were insanely P2W. Based on trends with Korean MMO's, I wonder if they will have a mobile version or tie in, or make it entirely mobile which would be awful.

    AA1 is for me still the best and worst MMORPG of all times.

    - class system
    - law system
    - Sandpark
    - Open world PvP system with war/peace times so you can also chill sometimes

    - Power Creep
    - Daily grinding
    - Missed Sandbox possibilities which obviously were planned but scrapped when it turned more and more into a themepark asia grinder

    And many more. 
    I could write a book about where this game could have been a dream for me but went into the wrong direction.

    I really hope AA2 will go the sandpark direction again, else hard pass!

    It is interesting... at the very least.

    With that said, I sincerely doubt they can recapture the same feeling the original did back then.

    I really loved the crafting, land and trade systems in this.  Regardless of the P2W nature of the game, the non-consensual PvP and their insistence on forcing gear progression to be reliant on grinding in PvP zones, made it very hard to play if you didn't want to commit a massive amount of time to keeping up.

    They should not name it archeage 2 , because we all know 2 mean "it's suck" .

    If they don't want anyone knowing it's gonna suck, they should have left out "Archeage" and "XLGames" as well.

    So how will this be successful where the first game failed when its still has some of the same issues at play.          

    that being the following:

    *Being Made with an Engine thats known to not work well for MMO.

    *Still a Korean MMO built for Koreans MMO culture, by Korean MMO developers that will have a western Translation/Host Publisher but little to know western input in the future game development.

    I don’t think just calling it “2” would be a smart thing either . ;)

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 

    'But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.'

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    'This does not apply just to ED but SC or any other game. What they will get is Rebirth/X4, likely prettier but equally underwhelming and pointless. 

    It is incredibly difficult to design some meaningfull leg content that would fit a space ship game - simply because it is not a leg game.

    It is just huge resource waste....'

    The best indicator of future past performance.

    I'll give it a look, but I'm pretty sure how it'll turn out.

    Reasonable and appropriate games allow humans to challenge and overcome obstacles in a simulated environment. They can help humans develop intelligence, exercise thinking and reaction abilities, train skills, and cultivate awareness of rules. Large-scale online games can also cultivate strategic and tactical awareness and team spirit. But everything is too bad, and excessive gaming can also harm people's physical and mental health.

    Better pre-order founder pack 1-3 for the official Archeage 2 servers. Its just normal Archeage but another rerelease on a different server.

    (For people who dont realise this... Archeage has released "New start" servers with founder packs about 5 times now. Its like they want to milk it over and over again thinking it will go better at the next restart server)
