So how will ArcheAge be earning revenue? There will be 2 new premium packages, 30 and 90 days. Players who purchase this will gain a couple of in-game advantages, such as ability to own a house/ garden, faster labour points recovery, vouchers to exchange for items and some buffs.

    Hopefully those prices don’t translate to the U.S. if it ends up being F2P here… Standard pricing model in the N.A. for monthly bonuses (aka subscriptions) is $15.
