Gamevil has sent word that the second round of the Android global beta test for ArcheAge Begins has kicked off and that it will run through July 3rd. Anyone around the world can download the game from Google Play and take part in this testing opportunity. During the event, a number of special in-game events will take place to ensure players have a chance to see the game in action.
MMORPG.com has been given keys to give players the Armored Wavewyrm Costume! Experience ArcheAge like never before thanks to ArcheAge 3.5: Erenor Eternal! New coastal Auroria zones, new crafted gear tier, reduced crafting randomness, customizable Ancestral skills, streamlined trade routes, and more await!
Trion Worlds and XLGames have announced that the next ArcheAge expansion, Erenor Eternal, will be launching on June 7th. New content includes Ancestral Skills, a new way for max-level characters to progress their characters. In addition, the new open world battlegrounds of Whalesong Harbor and Aegis Island zones are being added with tons of new content to explore.
ArcheAge Patrons are being invited to participate in a new event that runs from today through April 13th. Patron status is achieved either through purchasing a Patron subscription or using in-game APEX. Patrons can log in each day to be entered into a contest for a share of 100,000 Labor Points. Each day earns another chance at the top prize of 50,000, or secondary prizes of 20,000 or 10,000 Labor Points.
Researchers have used the culmination of the ArcheAge beta test as a predictor of a real world equivalent to a catastrophic end time scenario. The study analyzed over 270 million records of AA player behavior in something called the mapping principle. The team felt that the end of a closed beta test is a "close approximation of an end times scenario...[that can] shed light on human behavior in general under such conditions".
