This game is absolutely gorgeous. I really hope it ends up turning out well.

How 'bout teasing us with a Closed Beta date...

There already in Closed beta....Closed beta 3 just got over with actually. Target release is Dec 2011 in Korea. XLgames has hinted at an early 2012 release for the west coast.

They aren't westernizing the game, just translating. So it is plausible to have this game in that time frame

Not really.

Release in Korea is planned for Q1 2012.

There is still one more closed beta and open beta to go I think.

Definately there is no planned release date for NA or EU.
There is no publisher yet :(

Yikes. This is one of the games that will have to prove itself (well after release) whether or not it's viable in the west. I had my hopes up, but now the feeling is gone...

Another way to look at it... this is GREAT news for Korea. Great job and good luck guys!

This thing is still several years away from an EU/NA version, right?

@Wild Colors Definitely not several years. 2012 for NA/EU.

Depends when and who they find as a publisher. So far no one is willing to put up the money for it, much like no one was willing to pay for TERA.

So again, like BHS made En Masse for TERA, XL Games will probably create a subsidiary company to publish ArcheAge.

Easily one of my most anticipated MMOs of the past 5 years. Watched this game on several streams when CBT3 was happening. It was absolutely STUNNING.

Hmm ... i think it could be worthwhile to learn Korean.

You know how long it takes these companies to get a Korean MMO localized? Don't expect it in 2012 or maybe Q4 of that year.

I hate to be the party-pooper even though I'm highly anticipating this game.

Yeah I think Q4 2012 is possible , if there is good company releasing it is NA/EU.

Agree , won't be earlier though.

after all this time .. still subpar to AoC by far (graphically)

@(Unverified) that's highly subjective opinion.. I dislike AoC character models (too plastic-y), HATE animations in it (jumping... YUCK) and overall palette is just boring.
ArcheAge character and mount animations look smooth and lovely, character models (at least for the humans I will play) look fine and overall palette is very nice and cheerful, like I want it in a videogame.

Looks ok, going to be a grind though, all asian mmos are.

That isn't entirely true, most are, but not all. The reason TERA is failing in Korea at the moment is because it doesn't have a grind, it is too quick to get through the content.
