I may not have time this weekend to play the game, but nonetheless I managed to squeeze out an hour to have a quick look at the various races available. I know, some of you have seen these much earlier, but hey, it is my first time in the game T__T As you can see, there are 4 races here: Nuians, Ferres, Elves and Hariharan.
Some of the races have limited customizations, especially Ferres, but hey, this is just still Closed Beta~ The overall system looks good for now, although some facial cosmetic appearance overwrites the various scars and there is no randomize function.
The skills testing footage you see near the end of each video is basically the choosing of classes. Each character can choose up to 3 different abilities and combine them into a class. More about this system in the English ArcheAge website (link).
The first option lets players to manually do it, the second with a series of pre-listed classes to choose from while the third option is randomized. More videos to come over the weeks, stay tuned!
