Wonder no longer at the mysterious teases that gamigo had last week. It’s an update for both free-to-play ArcheAge and pay-to-play ArcheAge Unchained, called Rise of Nehliya, and it arrives one week from today, on Thursday, Nov. 12.

The update will bring a new area, Mysthrane Gorge, chock full of new quests and adventures. There players can take part in the Risopoda Hunt and explore the ruins of Halnaak’s Arcane Academy before taking on the new PvE siege and its boss Nehliya.

The update also adds the farmhand system, which will let farmers employ NPCs to do perform some of their more tedious work, like harvesting crops, tending livestock, and running Trade Packs. I always thought doing those kinds of jobs were central to the role-playing experience, but it looks like some players want to speed up that process. Who could have guessed?

Rise of Nehliya will head to the ArcheAge public test server at some point in the next few days, in advance of its launch next week. You can learn more about the update on the ArcheAge site.
