Players looking to take on the world of ArcheAge through its many means of entertainment in the open-world setting will be able to do so come September 16th, developer Trion Worlds announced.
To help gear up for the launch, an open beta will begin September 4th through to September 8th, culminating in a 4-day Head Start on live servers for all ArcheAge Founders beginning Friday, September 12th. Open beta will be available to any eager challenger, as will the entire game upon its launch. As usual there are your typical micro-transactions and possible subscription choices, but for the most part ArcheAge has been balanced quite well as a free-to-play title.
