While I am normally excited to hear news about ArcheAge this one seems rather strange to me for some reason. It kinda of reads like "An Asian MMO will have Asian inspired cities in the future" that's kinda of like reading "The next theme-park MMO will have questing at some point in the future."

Eh maybe I'm just tired. ^_^

Haha, I KNOW RITE, because Asia, or "the Far East" is one place of people who all look alike, have the exact same culture, architecture, foods, languages etc XDDDDD

@Unshra Hmm.. I think it's because the game gives off a victorian era theme so maybe this wasn't as of a given as you think.

There are European / western looking medieval and / or victorian cities architecturre already.

There is desert-like / middle-east / central-asia architecture as well.

So it is just normal that there will be Chinese one as well...


Have an open mind.

As long as they're not putting in kung-fu pandas as well, I'll keep an open mind.

Don't think that will happen ,but there is and will be some Asian siliness in this game.

Even though style in it is suprisingly 'toned' and in many places almost western , it is still Korean game.

I can live with that I guess. I hope :)

@Comrade Domovoi Nice attempt at twisting the comment into something it is not, never did I say there were exactly the same nor do I believe such. But I admit there are similarities (and for good reason) in the architecture we see in China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and lets be fair I am sure when you say Asia and ask people what visual image comes you mind you will get a response that covers those architectural styles and rarely that of say Russia or Iran .

I admit I should have said China if for nothing more then to avoid people who try to twist things into a negative view on race and culture.

Your comment was slight annoying to me as an asian. I hope your comment was just a joke....

Well I don't mind the sillyness, as long as it doesn't become a playable race. :)

Real "inspirations" would be designing your own architecture instead of copying more Chinese. Howard Roark just shrugged in his grave.

@nhat Archeage is also copying western architecture. It still isn't interesting.

@relgoth For a game like this, no. For your regular, theme park, mmo. Yes.

@relgoth I think someone who has been playing since early beta can answer you this better.

They should just bring it out right now. Most MMO's end up being paid beta's once they are released anyhow...and I would pay to beta this one!
