F2P Sandbox ArcheAge Demo Ready for GDC 2014 with a Western Beta Following
ArcheAge's new Community Manager Evan "Scapes" Berman has announced that Trion has prepared a compact press demo that fits inside fifteen minutes for GDC 2014 and will also share it on March 21 during the Friday Livestream on their official Twitch channel. The new Community Manager also revealed that they will expand ArcheAge's western beta in the coming weeks following GDC this month as XLGames has been providing tremendous engineering effort toward making ArcheAge go live in the west as rapidly as possible after the ArcheAge's Russian launch. ArcheAge is currently in an initial Friends and Family Alpha in the west.
Berman said that they have updated some more information on ArcheAge's official site, and the new site is underway. On the other hand, the official forums are being finalized.
Additionally, ArcheAge is confirmed to be a free-to-play sandbox MMORPG in the west.
"Allow me to say this here and now: both Trion Worlds and XLGames want ArcheAge to be a free-to-play sandbox that fits our "No Tricks, No Traps" vision and will make development decisions for to achieve that goal in Trion's territories."
