The closed beta for Trion Worlds and XLGames' upcoming MMORPG ArcheAge will begin on July 17 at 10 a.m. PDT, the publisher and developer announced today.
Like ArcheAge's alpha, the level cap for the beta will be 50. And if you want to share your experiences with other people through video, screenshots, or live-streams? No problem, as there is no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in place for the ArcheAge beta.
ArcheAge was created by Jake Song, the man perhaps best known for his work on the Lineage series. The game aims to separate itself from the pack by letting players adventure through the world at their own pace and by blazing their own trails. You won't find pre-defined paths.
Like most other MMOs out there, ArcheAge also has a PvP system that lets groups of players duke it out--but in this game, you can do so on land or sea. You can also build a virtual home and build farms that impact and influence the game's economy.
The ArcheAge beta will conclude on July 21 at 10 a.m. PDT. You can guarantee yourself a spot in the beta by paying at least $50 for "Founder" status. Trion Worlds also released a new trailer for the game today, which you can watch above.
XLGames is also working on Civilization Online, an MMO based on Sid Meier's popular strategy series.
