The video isn't working properly. Well at least for me.

@Alex Oglitchkin Ok it's working now it didn't like my Darkmoon client. Seems like a typical boss fight just different look.

I didn't pay too much attention to Archeage, until I started watching all the beta videos. I will now never rest until i get to play this masterpiece, NO SLEEP.

But fo reals, I really like the direction this game is going in. Boss fights don't look overly special but I don't give a sh*t, grab a boat and lets go sailing baby!

If they don't release this game in America, I'll be way to upset.
Here's to hoping it comes out sometime in 2013 for America!

The UI looks like the one I used back when I played WoW. Other than that I don't see anything special.

You noticed that too, the party and raid frames looks like a WoW mod that I use to use also when I played WoW.

Nonetheless I hope this will come out eventually in the US.

Haha the only EQ UI mod I used back then was an Ivy one lol.

But I think your trying to be an arse about my posting and yes I know EQ was out way before WoW, I played EQ from 1999 to 2002.

But also I was not saying that ArchAge was a WoW clone, just that the Party and Raid frames in that video looks very familiar to a WoW mod I used one time.

Game seems it runs like butter. I honestly hope this game will come out with United States. I dont know why 'sand box' games all the sudden are hating in the main industry? Obviously because of games like World of Warcraft and EQ2, etc. But, there are successful games that are sand boxes and they did great... Why hasn't there been like a Elder Scrolls MMO yet, etc. I know there is a Fall out MMO that is like on a endless delay but still.. why no sand box games! :(.

Simple. Look at the whole entertainment industy in the last years. There is a massive fear of anything innovative. This is especially visible in the gaming industry where the biggest companies (actiblizz, EA, Ubi, Nintendo and so on) focus almost exclusively on sequels and not on new franchises.

The reasoning behind this is that an existing IP can sell more copies, due to an existing fanbase than a brand new one and also has greatly reduced production costs. Just look at Call of Duty or all the EA sports sims.

In the MMO market, this fear of innovation translates to endless themepark MMOs because the most successful subscription MMO is a themepark. If a sandbox would have had WoW's success, we'd only see sandboxes.

What I like most in the video, is the huge open area! No fog to hide the distant land, no huge trees, nothing. An open, gorgeous area. It gives you a taste of the scale of the environments, which is a very good thing for an mmo title.

Add to this, the sailing for hidden islands and adventures in the unknown and player's built houses wherever you want. I am totally hyped!

It is about time we moved on to total sandbox mmos. Can't wait!

@geololj Couldn't agree more. I'm already tired of the heavily instanced SWTOR.

Nice ,though I saw MUCH better ArcheAge world bosses fights videos.

With more interesting bosses.

+ This boss had lvl 30 and steparu had lvl 38 with some people from group having even 40 +.

I think I read somewhere that in beta there is content up to lvl 30 atm, (lvl cap will be 50 I think).


Anyway cannot wait :)

@geololj

Agree. One of best thing is that open world is totally not instanced in AA, like you can go from one continent to other without single loading screen :o
