Trion Offering Progression Servers And Dragon Mounts In Next Month's ArcheAge Update
If it worked once, why not do it again? That seems to be the mindset of Trion Worlds for Update 4.5: Legends Return, as it seeks to build upon its previously successful Fresh Start servers for ArcheAge, which revitalized the game back in December 2016. This time around, the dev team isn't going with just a Fresh Start server, but instead a progression server modeled upon a similar experiment in the Korean version of the game.
Two servers -- Ezi in Europe and Nui in North America -- will fling open their doors on April 5, featuring a launch-day version of ArcheAge. Over time, features and content will be added, and you can track exactly what's coming when via a handy roadmap. Until the servers open, you can purchase a Silver Entry Pack for $9.99 to reserve your character name(s) and pre-create your character(s) or pick up the more expensive Platinum Entry Pack for $99.99, which offers early creation and a host of other goodies. That gives you about three weeks, which might not be long enough for some people to get through character creation. You know who you are.
As for the rest of the game ... well, could you use more dragons? Every game could, and Trion's going to deliver, as players will be able to earn flying dragon mounts. Crafting is also getting some welcome changes, with players having the ability to make risk-free requests for crafting from other players. And, as part of Trion's continuing quest to reduce RNG, players can "wave goodbye to destruction during major regrade failure on the crafted item sets." I'll leave the exact details of how that works for ArcheAge players to figure out, and you can read all about it on the Legends Return announcement page.
