Translated as the “Holy Task” test phase, ArcheAge China will once again open its doors to gamers with beta access on 18th May 2014. Tencent Games also revealed via a press release that the game version will be “faster than the servers in Korea, Japan and Russia”.
Of course, I am not sure if this is just pure marketing talk, it seems Tencent Games is going all out with this announcement. The finalized business model will also be revealed around 18th May, and my best guess will be free-to-play with premium monthly packages. Stay tuned for more info!
