If you've been following ArcheAge news the past few days, you've probably heard something about gamigo deciding to charge for the Garden of the Gods expansion... er... update... Well, it seems to depend on which version of the game you're playing as to what they're calling it and whether or not you're going to have to pay.

As it turns out, players of the original ArcheAge will be getting the new content for free while those playing ArcheAge Unchained will need to pay for the "DLC". Gamigo addressed some of this recently in a forum post addressing player concerns about the whole affair. As it turns out the decision to charge for the content is the result of the ArchePass sytem having failed forcing the company to find other monitization options for the game.

Gamigo further clarified the matter in a small interview with MassivelyOP where they stated that the content will be available to ArcheAge players for free and that it's mostly identical -- with certain items available in the shop.
