Daily Ramble 101: Expedition into ArcheAge
As I’ve mentioned previously, I started following along with a group of gamers that call themselves the MMO Book Club. These guys are from Reddit and they have a unique way of gaming together – each month they vote on a game to play and they all focus on leveling up characters in that franchise. This month, ArcheAge was the winning selection so they headed into that Trion property – and I went along for the ride. This is the start of my expedition into ArcheAge…
According to the Trion website, ArcheAge has no predefined progression and you are encouraged to “play your way”.
In essence, it is a version of a Sandbox game and from what I can tell, a lot of the content at later levels is player generated PvP. There’s lots of opportunity to craft, build, and destroy. You can make houses and castles or you can play as a pirate ship captain. So much of what you choose to do in the game is completely up to you – you are not funneled into theme park activities or strict class leveling. And it’s been pretty fun so far.
