ArcheAge is one of the most loved and best-made MMORPG sandbox games ever made. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback and suggestions we’ve received from you, our community, we’ve decided to move the launch of ArcheAge: Unchained to October 15, 2019. “Shadows Revealed”, our next content update, will also be released at the same time for both versions – F2P and B2P. The graphics in both versions (F2P and B2P) of ArcheAge will be significantly improved and we’re working on optimizing graphics settings, performance, and features.

A super popular MMORPG that was murdered by Pay to Win additions will be soon to re-release with a no pay to win mind-frame In a move that the company has been teasing out for the past several days, Gamigo has announced ArcheAge Unchained. The new version of the MMO will be a one-time purchase as opposed to the currently existing F2P version. With AAU, players will be “able to enjoy the content as often as you want” without any optional purchases or subscriptions.

ArcheAge: Unchained will have a “onetime purchase” and “there is no longer a subscription model.” However, you can “purchase vanity items via Credits and we will implement seasonal ArchePasses.” There will be no transferring characters from the F2P game servers — which will remain open — to Unchained; everyone starts fresh, with 5,000 Labor Points, no advantages in LP restoration, and “Housing will be available for everyone.”
