    This name probably says nothing to most people but it might be the future AAA sandbox MMO using the CryEngine2.Song Jae-kyeong aka Jake Song who was the master mind behind Lineage has been working on this project with his company XLgames for the last 3 years.Arche Age has everything Vanguard promised but was unable to fulfill.

    Below are an interview of the man by massively and 2 gameplay videos from G-Star 2010

    Sadly, it will probably be another Asian grindfest.

    Laggy bugged bot infested unbalanced nerfed cash shop dependent pay to win Asian grindfest.. Assuming it's F2P.. Graphics look sweet, even in a youtube video..

    It's hard to get excited about any game coming out of Asia.

    I think I'm going to have to agree - though I always stand to be corrected.

    But,I keep wondering if a company like EnMasse Entertainment which sole purpose is to port good MMO from Asia to the West will be interested in distributing this game? This might change things,don't you think.

    For now they are pretty busy with TERA but the possibilities are out there.

    Yeah, the whole game looks incredible so far. Have you seen the video of the trees growing that were planted outside a newly constructed house? :eek:

    Here's an interview from Outpostgamerz which shed more lights on what we think we already know.

    Wait... I thought Archage was supposed to be a sandbox game... But it has quest hubs?

    I'm excited about this game because of the ship combat, house building, farming, crafting. It looks like it will have a Wurm feel to it plus much more. I don't see a problem with a sand-box game having quest hubs; Eve has them too.

    It's a hybrid sandbox/theme park. It looks very promising and I'll be testing this together with some of the MO friends.

    We would prefer a full sandbox game but there isn't much out there at the moment, a few interesting ones in development and that's about it.

    Aye, EVE is about the only sandbox game currently out there that blends sandbox with questing nigh-perfectly. If Archage is taking tips from EVE, I'm interested... :) Sounds like I might get to play with my old MO buddies again sooner than I thought!

    I've got a lot on my plate as far as games go, but I cannot wait to try this one out.

    Possibly be a game that could draw me away from Wurm.

    saw this a few months back and thought i must have. Surely a publisher would take it by the horns aand have a go ?
    All ive seen is good feedback and a fair bit of hyping so it probably would do well id of thought.
