A Korean website called Inven
has spilled the beans regarding ArcheAge's
business model. According to a leaked photo from a convenience store, the highly anticipated fantasy sandpark will feature a monthly subscription.
reports that the listed prices will change after the game's open beta test, while MMO Culture
says that they're cheaper than Blade & Soul
and comparable to the Korean version of Aion
. The site also says that a cash shop "is expected to be added soon."
has issued no further comments on a western release of ArcheAge
nor a possible western business model.
