If there was any question on what business model would be the best to bring ArcheAge to the West, Mail.ru, the publisher of the Russian version is giving an involuntary helping hand. Reports say that ArcheAge brought over $10 million USD since it launched last weekend. Trion Worlds, please take a hint.
The game is getting quite a lot of players and Mail.ru is dealing with huge queues, even with the reported 15 servers. New servers are being opened during this week as well as a function to transfer characters from a loaded server to another and another to kick players AFK from the server.
Trion Worlds should be speeding up the development on the Western version in the next few months, so hopefully we’ll have more updates really soon.
