    With its highly-anticipated fantasy MMORPG ArcheAge launching its fourth CBT on 8th Dec, the official released a brand-new promotional combat video, which showcases massive battles and depicts stirring solo & group gameplay.

    In a recent interview with the famous South Korean game site This Is Game, XL Games' chief planner Kim Kyung Tae shed light on the content newly added to ArcheAge's fourth CBT version, as well as the in-game backpack system and death penalty.
    In ArcheAge, all items and materials have weight. Apart from personal belongings, each player can take along a very large backpack capable of storing substantial items and materials. But due to the weight, players cannot run but can only walk. Riding on horses can help players move a bit faster, and if travelling by ship, carriage or other vehicles, players will move as fast as expected.
    When a player is killed, his/her backpack will drop to the ground directly, and anyone clicking it can take it away instantly or loot the contained items. Building materials cannot be transported between continents, but can only be carried and delivered by players themselves. In this respect, the game has much in common with the Ultima Online, the world's first successful MMORPG.
    From yesterdayon, ArcheAge's fourth CBT will last up to 80 days, allowing players to indulge in stimulating sea battles & castle sieges, enjoy the fun of castle building, etc.

    About time we had developers developing the "Right Way" instead of "For The Casual Masses Way", I truly believe there is a huge market out there for players who play with consequence and enjoy doing so. EvE and even Darkfall have proven there is profit in developing old school Consequence sandbox MMO's, and even more profit if you can succesfully merge Themepark content into a Sandbox MMO environment.

    All Hail XLGames, Archeage is the future.. :dance:

    A very nice compromise on the full-loot aspect.
    Love it.
