ArcheAge: Russian Open Beta First Look
How to play the game is below.
I was going to do this later in the week. But because I had to go and open my mouth saying so. I got spammed to do it faster. Well here it is ArcheAge my first look. My first impression of it is this reminds me of Rift. And when I got a glimpse of the art. I then said Rift and Guild Wars 2 smashed together. Then I did the quests and kind of laughed. Because the quests were better then I expected.
Now don't get me wrong it's the standard go get this kill that wtc. But with fun side bar things to do. Like as you will see in the video one quest is the scale a rope up a castle. So you can do a surprise attack. Another is use a Hang Glider to fly back to town. My favorite however is this. Hands down it was raising my own horse from a baby. The class system is Rift's Soul system in the disguise.
They not fooling me with all those class name combinations. But that doesn't mean it's not an good system. Just not fooling me renaming it in a different game. It's so similar I'm remaking a famous build in this game. That I originally made in Rift. Yep it's just that equal.
I give the games music a thumbs up. Some of it had me listening intensely. The graphics seem a little on the dull side. Maybe it was my settings or it's supposed to be dark and kinda bleh. Even when it's sunny out you'll see what I mean. For the most part the games ok. Not mind blowingly omg can't wait to US release. But it's ok and fun. I won't be doing a normal series on the game.
I'll be playing it as is on Twitch. You can see all the footage there after this video.
