Attending the recent 17173.com awards ceremony in China, the founder of XLGAMES and ArcheAge candidly talked about the business model ArcheAge China may use.
He said that Free-to-Play is a possibility as the business model suits China better. Of course, nothing is confirmed at this moment. The debut test phase for the China server will begin from 22nd May till 31st May.
ArcheAge Korea is holding a Free-to-Play event from 17th April till 31st May, with no time card needed. However, several social and life functions will require stamina points, which can be recharged by purchasing a consumable cash item.
