Gamigo promises ‘new content on a regular basis’ for ArcheAge, RIFT, Trove, Defiance, Atlas Reactor

The string of capitalized names is an affront.

Players still awaiting more details on what’s happening to their MMORPGs following Gamigo’s buyout of Trion Worlds’ assets have finally received a blanket announcement, this time from the game’s new community manager and team. Interestingly, the post has been delivered to all five of the games, including Atlas Reactor, Defiance, and RIFT. Until now, the bulk of the updates have been for ArcheAge and Trove players alone.

“We saw many questions asking about the future of these games,” CM AnneBonny writes. “Those questions are largely about new content, fixes to existing bugs, and the changes to the Trion staff members. For sure we kept the necessary resources to ensure that there is movement within and around the games. Generally speaking, we can tell you that the patch schedule is likely to shift somewhat, but we will make sure that all of you can enjoy new content on a regular basis. Also, the developers will continue providing you with updates through Producer letters, so all of you will have a little look behind the scenes as well.”

Apparently, Gamigo is expanding the existing customer support and community teams to cover German and French players too, which isn’t a surprise given that Gamigo is based in Germany. Gamigo will also apparently be keeping the subscription (Patron) program across the games but is freezing Trion’s Creator Program, which allowed players in some games to submit content in exchange for in-game rewards.

“Patron Status will stay in place and we do not intend to shut it down. However, we are putting the Creator Program on hold for the time being. Effectively managing a program of that size was a huge task and we want to be sure that if we launch the program again down the road it will be a great experience for everyone. Therefore, we will revisit this in the weeks ahead and keep all of you updated on our progress. Thank you for your understanding.”

Glyph and Trion games remain uninstalled until further notice of substantial content (or at least fixes and QOL changes, as they’ve at least implied).

Out of curiosity, if I were to play through Rift again what would be a good place to stop where the plot isn’t left hanging?

I’m not familiar with the 4.0 version of the game so I can’t tell you for sure, sorry!

I know this might sound racist (but then I’m white so maybe it isn’t), if they’re like any other Germans then the Hypetrains and Content trains will run on time!

AA new “content” was weekly lootboxes. Does this mean they are gonna push out DAILY new lootbox “content”!?!? Oh boy cant wait…

“Gamigo Promises New and More Intrusive Cash Shops in All their Games”

There, I fixed your typo.

I’d be curious to hear from fans of these games and why they feel confident in still spending money on these games. Would be great to get some actual player input on these changes.

I’m a Huge Fan of Trove & I won’t spend a Dime for quite some time until I see the Fallout from this.

Until we see the actual changes nobody knows what the games will look like. It’s sort of a wait and see scenario, where Gamigo is saying what they’re planning on doing, but it’s so early that we won’t know how it’ll truly turn out for a few months at least. Transitions take time.

I’m a bit more optimistic than some because if Gamigo wanted to just milk the games, they wouldn’t have to change anything. Trion already took care of putting in bad F2P models and letting their games languish. So that work is already done. But we’ve also seen that it wasn’t very fruitful – if it was, Trion wouldn’t have had to sell! So Gamigo wouldn’t make any money unless they actually made positive changes to the game.

Of course I’m not paying for any of these games right now so I’m not invested like some are. Still, logic tells me it’ll be better than what we already have.

I remain sceptical.
