While some question why the new update is known as “1.0”, I am guessing it is due to the storyline, rather than game client itself. With new gigantic maps, dungeons, gears, skills, monsters and a plateau of upgraded and new functions, ArcheAge is certainly starting the new year with a bang.
The China server is currently in Closed Beta 2, and expected to launch later this year. For the North America server under Trion Worlds, I have yet to receive any news, but it will be a small miracle if the game manages to launch before 2015. Let’s wait and see.
