    1. If it has the same F2P model as other versions, then it'll be relatively Freemium and most people end game will have to pay for the VIP Premium service.

    2. If not right at the start, the server will eventually get the more recent changes to Archeage which have turned it even more-so from a Sandbox to just a Theme Park game like everything else. The future of the game already is pretty bad, unless they can ensure the Sandbox aspects that everyone else got to enjoy (and is now being taken away from them) stay.
    Current Games:

    Blade and Soul NA
    Black Desert NA
    Albion Online (CBT)

    Would be weird if it wasn't F2P seeing how the korean and russian versions are "F2P" already.
    However, I would have prefered a subscription fee to be honest. But I guess you can't always get what you want.

    I really hope they won't follow through with the (bad) updates introduced in the korean Archeage version though...

    I THINK (but don't quote me on it) They will be using a different model (Think rift) as apposed to the two other versions ( Russian and kr)

    Honestly, as an F2P player, I've wanted more P2P games. The market is becoming more and more expensive for the gamer to actually enjoy the F2P experience.

    Oh well though. I like the game regardless.

    Trion has done a good job with Rift F2P so I'm not too worried.

    I just hope this is not the 1.0 version, 1.0 took out the sand of the game and just left a theme park in it's place.

    They changed a ton of things and made it so you had to just run end game dungeons to get gear rather than doing the trading routes and other things that were more sandbox-like.

    It seems like NA/EU (3 languages for AA by Trion) will end up eventually getting the 1.0 update, or possibly even right at launch or closed beta. Trion says it is hopeful that XL will listen to the players in all of its versions and by the time it releases here have it all balanced and ready to go.

    Ah, that's a bit of a bummer. It's good to have raids but if they truly do make the sandboxy stuff irrelevant that would be sad.
    I'll still be hopeful though, the Russian OB was very fun. The starting area can take a bit(as it's themeparky) but once you're given the freedom to do as you please it's really quite enjoyable.

    Let's just hope it doesn't end up as "Free to play" as the other versions.

    I'm more than certain I can't run it with my current PC but it doesn't hurt to try if I ever get into beta.

    I highly doubt Archeage will be that intensive on the CPU. Most games nowadays have Very Low settings for people with poor graphic systems.

    Now, if you want intense requirements, check out Star Citizen.. That game looks amazing but is SUPER harsh on the CPU.. It'll likely require a VERY good game to even play at all. I'm actually skeptical that if I played Star Citizen that my CPU would be able to handle it.

    I have been playing AA for about two weeks now. It's a great game. However, it isn't a sandbox game.
    It's a theme-park with some cool features and restricted sandbox elements; it's fairly linear.

    The game I can relate it to most is Rift.
    So, think Rift with areas of the map set aside for non-instanced player houses, a naval system, and gliders.

    It worries me a little that Trion will be publishing two games that are so similar.

    It's such a fun game, it's easy to get swept away and not really realize you're at a theme-park.
    In reality, there are tons of restrictions to what you can do / where you can do it and pretty much everything is reliant on combat levels.
    Players do not have a major effect on the game world.

    I'll make a friendly challenge for anyone to list a few examples of how ArcheAge is less of a sandbox experience than Rift.

    Star Citizen is being designed based on the average(expected) gaming rig in 2016-2017.

    Hey guys thought I'd let you ramp. In regards to the title of this thread some people mocked it, as is expected here. Trion version was not going to be F2P at first, this decision was made very recently and is "NEWS", The reason why they went f2p instead of Trion's plan to go p2p is because of the success of the Russian beta that's running now, which I'm in.
    Also anyone wanting to try it Russian beta can not as they block you now, unless you go vpn or some madcap way of getting around a block..
    Apart from making the above statement on behalf of my thread, I've re-edited the main post to include and have bumped this to let you know a new forum has opened over at trion ArcheAge site, so head on over if your into this game. THE TRION ARCHEAGE FORUM LINK <----
    Cheers and as I always try to say..
    Happy gaming.

    A majority of the English-speaking community will probably migrate simply because we'll be able to get decent pings. A fresh start is usually quite fun, as well.

    I deliberately didn't get very far on the russian version so that I wouldn't have to re-make everything once Trion gets their sh** together :P

    similar..to.. rift?
    what
    like
    what??? no
    did you play archeage? lol be honest

    when a game presents sandbox elements, it's up to you to make of it as you will.
    there's no true sandbox per se, because sandbox is what you want it to be.
    do you want to be a farmer? go ahead. a mercenary? pirate? sure.
    there are a lot of things you can do in the game that aren't part of its 'features' and that's what makes the sand in sandpark.

    also, combat level doesn't matter a whole lot, because the game is focused around /group/ play. 2 level 30's can easily beat a 50 that isn't decked out the whazoo with crafted gear.
