    Following a teaser campaign aimed at former players, Archeage's publisher Gamigo has announced a new server and 'Buy to play' business model 'Archeage: Unchained', which will operate alongside the existing Patron/f2p servers.

    A key difference will be the removal of Apex, an item which can be purchased with currency earned in-game or real money and in turn, used to purchase 'Patron' status, permitting housing ownership and a higher labor pool on the existing servers. There will be no transfer of items or characters between the existing version and 'ArcheAge: Unchained' servers, so the new 'Unchained' server will be similar to a fresh start server.

    A new stealth-focused skill tree, 'Swiftblade', a revamp of the siege system, a new naval arena have also been announced and will be included in the next major update (6.0) for both server types.

    [EDIT] A REVISED release date for 'Archeage Unchained' has now been announced - see separate post here.

    Thank you for the update! I enjoyed being a farmer here in the past. :) Sounds like the new owner has listened to all the reviews from their player base.

    It's a very welcome development given that it's aimed at attracting back the people who loved ArcheAge at launch, rather than existing legacy players, so hopefully both versions will have healthy populations into the future.

    Bearing in mind that AA:U will use the same version of the game as the legacy servers - and A LOT has changed since the early days - many people are dusting off their old accounts on the legacy servers and jumping back in to re-familiarise themselves with AA before AA:U launches.

    Any TOGs considering doing the same, please don't hesitate to contact an AA officer in-game if you'd like an invitation back to the legacy guild, or PM me if you have any questions.

    Hey all, if you're interested in getting a TOG guild together in AAU, please take a look at this post. You can send Khallek a PM or post in the TOG ArcheAge member forum.

    I don't think I have the experience to be a guild leader, but would love to get a guild setup and join it.
