Trion Worlds had a slew of news to dole out at PAX this weekend, the biggest of which is certain to be the announcement of the launch date for XLGames' sandbox MMO ArcheAge, which Trion is publishing in the West.

The official launch date for ArcheAge is Tuesday, Sept. 16, with an open beta on Sept. 4-8 and early access for Founders starting on Sept. 12. Meanwhile, Rift's Nightmare Tide expansion goes live on Oct. 8, offering three new zones, new dungeons and other top-level challenges, and four new souls.

The rest of Trion's games are also making news, with Defiance getting the Aftermath update at the end of September, and voxel-building Trove going into closed beta on Sept. 25.

Which of Trion's games are you most pumped about?

Understand that there is a sort of fatigue system in AA for the free model but after playing in one of the test phases with a friend I am still looking forward to it as a payed product. If you can cover the vip or whatever it is an awesome game,otherwise I advise looking at it as an unlimited trial till they decide to cut the fatigue system. Hoping they haven't already shot themselves in the foot adding it to begin with since the overall quality of content is quite good otherwise.

4 times I received emails saying that I have failed to purchase the Arheum pack which is 150 dollars. Thank god I used a gift card to purchase the game, there is no root kit or any hack on my computer. Trion fked up, their customer service has been trash since I played RIFT when it was released.

This game can go to hell, because someone hacked into Trion Worlds system 2 archeage founder packs were purchased from my account, for 134.99 euros, so 269,98 euros overall, still waiting for refund and Trion doesn't even admit their fault, they blame customers, worst company ever, Trion support responded after 5 days, while I had to block my card and will have to wait for one more week to get new one, fck Trion Worlds and Archeage!!!

I have to say im more exited about rift then archage
Archage crafting and colecting mats all goes around Labor and f2p players dont get labor when offline and gain 5 labor every 5 minutes while online with max labor of 2k now here is a simpel exampel:in order to build small boat (CLIPER) you need 1pack of lumber 1 pack of iron and 1 pack of fabric 10 gold and 150 labor points.1 pack of lumber need 50 labor points and 100 lumber,and 1 lumber needs 3 logs and 5 labor points plus you need labor to cut down a tree witch sometimes goes from 10 to 25 labor points so do the math.As f2p you dont get auction whitch will be your main sorce of gold.In order to buypass this you need a wery wery wery good guild or simply buy patron for 1 month to get auction house at least.f2p players are just in serius disadvantage in crafting,colecting and trading as for pvp,exploration and questing it is preaty much all same but you will all see it on Sept 4th.(sry for bad english)

archage is terrible for f2p players due to the labor points. if you want to do the main aspects of the game that they advertised you will HAVE to pay

Hell yeah! I though tit was gonna be november at the earliest for Archeage.

Also, new site layout is much better, feels less like a lot more professional instead of like a hobby site.
