ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained finally made their long-awaited debut on December 3rd under Kakao Games, the new acting publisher for the groundbreaking MMORPG published by XLGAMES.
Fresh servers greeted players of both ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained, offering a day-one experience for nostalgic long-timers, and a place for those new to the game to compete and thrive on a level playing field.
Four total merged servers per region for both versions of ArcheAge will allow veterans with long-developed characters to continue their journey in Erenor.
With the December reset comes fresh content in a number of forms. First, the arrival of a brand new skillset, Spelldance, which exudes healing powers to allies on the battlefield, and causes damage to enemies. Details on Spelldance and its various utilizations can be found here.
Second, teams of five can test their might in Black Thorn Prison, a harrowing dungeon full of dangerous demons and deadly bosses. As you increase the dungeon’s power level, so too does its difficulty grow. Do you and your companions have what it takes to reap its rewards? Learn more here.
Finally, the much-anticipated addition of Guild Residences will now be available at Guild Level 5 as a Full Kit in the Prestige Shop. Learn more about Guild Residences here.
An update trailer featuring all three new additions to the game can be viewed below:
To celebrate the transfer launch, a large number of events and gifts await players both old and new, including one free premium ArchePass given to every player for a limited time. A detailed, comprehensive list of December 2nd launch events, rewards, and timelines are available here.
To join in the adventure, players must transfer their gamigo accounts to Kakao Games accounts to play, and can do so by visiting gamigo’s Glyph gaming platform. Once a data transfer code has been obtained, users can access the Kakao Games transfer website to create a Kakao Games account (if they haven’t already) and enter the transfer code to complete the process.
