A ‘remastered’ version of ArcheAge is due out in Korea in 2018
Would it be fair to say that XLGAMES has “mastered” ArcheAge? The developer behind it has been working on the live version for five years now, so there’s some familiarity with the project, but that does raise some entertaining questions about what “mastery” entails. What’s important was that either way, the studio has managed to master the game once again, as a remastered version of the game is apparently due to launch in January of 2018.
This newly remastered version will only be playable on one new server (Orchidna) and will supposedly reflect the years of work done on the live version of the game, so it will have no small number of balance adjustments and improvements. Whether this works more like the various fresh start servers for the localized version or involves significant game changes remains to be seen. What is definite, though, is that the title would be difficult (if not impossible) to master again, as this effort clearly denotes a large amount of mastery.
