Trion Worlds is starting to become quite the ambitious MMOG developer, producer, and publishing company. In a very awesome move to most fans of RIFT and Trion and SyFy’s upcoming DEFIANCE project, Trion announced yesterday that they are teaming up with XLGAMES to bring the hugely ambitious, sandbox-style Eastern MMORPG ArcheAge to Western audiences. Trion will become the localized publisher for the game. No release dates or beta dates are known yet, but Trion does have a placeholder website in place already.
Now, if you haven’t heard much about ArcheAge yet, it’s showing a lot of promise in Korea, mainly due to the ways in which players will be able to participate in a wide variety of innovative, open activities. We’re talking in-game gems like naval combat, the ability to build your own ships and housing, large-scale PvP siege combat, an arena system, aerial gliding, and customized pet, farming, and judicial systems. If you’d like to find out more about the game, XLGAMES has a few video trailers available on the current ArcheAge site.
The official press release for the announcement can be found on Trion’s website.
