    Default ArchBlade - where the hell did this game come from?

    So my steam popped up and said ArchBlade is now available (released today on steam) for FREE.

    Here is the description:
    ArcheBlade is a free to play 3D multiplayer fighting game that captures the essence of combo-based fighting games combined with unique game modes. Play as one of many characters and master your skills to become the best fighter.

    Just from the trailer and screenshots it looked really fkn good! I thought it'd be a typical fighter game though but it's not, it has character upgrades and multiple gametypes such as moba mode, ctf, team deathmatch and so on!

    Here's a link to the steam page:

    Is ANYONE playing this or have heard/played it? Would love to hear a review as I'm currently downloading it

    it's a renamed game - i think it was on kickstarter before - with a failed launch and then went on kickstarter again and failed to meet its goal as well.

    the game isn't very balanced.

    It's not renamed. It's a relaunched version of the original games that has bugs and fixes used by what little money they got from the kickstarter. It's a real shame since the game has some real potential but falls flat with the lack of variety and hilariously awful balancing. I paid a fairly good chunk early on in the kickstarter because they had some real awesome designs for potential characters but backed out after seeing it wasn't even going to make it like 1/3 into the goal.

    it's weird and interesting how Smite, a similarly themed action moba, seems successful and yet Archeage is not.

    Seems an example of Archeage not listening or responding to the needs of their playerbase as much.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Archeage is different from Archeblade.

    not on topic im sorry, but what is your sig from?
    When you kill 6 people in Unreal Tournament it's "Monster Kill",
    In Quake3 it's "Excellent", in Counter-Strike it's "Kicked by console"

    ArcheBlade has a great combat system but bad networking = LAG
