ArcheAge announces Akasch Invasion patch coming March 25 – with some paid content for Unchained

Over the weekend, Gamigo teased that “something’s coming” for ArcheAge, prompting more trepidation than curiosity. Now we know what it is: a big update, and not even far away. It’s called Akasch Invasion, and it’s launching later this month on March 25th, just after the final land rush from the recent server merges. The notable additions are a new zone, new quests, new raid, new chronicle, and the Gunslinger skillset.

“Players who enjoy fighting from the distance, but are tired of stringing their bows, now have a chance to transform themselves into a ruthless, rifle-wielding adventurer. The new Gunslinger skillset combines potent ranged attacks with a variety of critical debuffs, guaranteed to give you an edge in combat. Combined with any of the existing skillsets, the Gunslinger skillset introduces a total of 66 new classes to explore.

“In the western parts of Auroria, an ancient enemy emerges in the Ipnya Ridge. Players can explore this new zone with the help of their companions Ardios and Lauryla and join forces with players from all factions to face their foes in the Akasch Invasion. Victory never felt more rewarding and failure to defend Erenor from these forces may result in terrible consequences.

“Last but certainly not least, daring heroes can immerse themselves in a new chronicle The Nuon Dragon War, and unveil the truth behind the sudden changes in the Karkasse Ridgelands, while discovering the history of the extinct Nuon race.”

Do note that this is going to be paid content for ArcheAge Unchained players, though it’s free over on regular ArcheAge servers. Preorders are expected to go live Friday.

Update
Gamigo reached out to us to clarify that only the Gunslinger skillset itself will be paid content for Unchained. Unchained players will not be required to pay for the zone and other content.

It is probably a nightmare to balance, but I think this is only the second full new skill set to be added to the game after all these years. They have the skeleton of a great Rift-like mix and match skill sets system, but that has been woefully underdeveloped, imo.

Now for only 29.99 you can play this awesome skillset we here at gamigo only wish the best for our players so our next important message is Go fuck your self but do give is your money first.

Archeage, the game that keeps on giving – not to the players, mind you, but to people reading comments on ArcheAge news stories.

I probably shouldn’t be surprised I’m no longer on Gamigo’s mailing list.

Well the mailing list was free, then it went sub, but the servers were jammed so nobody got them. Then they sent them just to bots. Then they launched a NEW newsletter, voiding all old subs but promising that it was always going to be free and have no advertising, until they launched the “Advertiser’s special issue” and promptly started charging people again for the newsletter.
