    Fan site ArcheAge Source has unearthed a new interview with ArcheAge creator Jake Song. The translation from the original Korean is a little rough, but there are still plenty of fascinating nuggets awaiting the patient reader.

    The forthcoming beta phase will see the existing game world "complemented by huge expanses of ocean." This isn't just for show, as Song says that eventually "oceans will allow players to find new employment, for example extraction, preparation, and delivery of seafood." Sea battles are also mentioned, as are "player-built maritime residences." How this relates to the previously announced underwater gameplay isn't clear, nor is it a given that we'll see all of this in CBT5, but ArcheAge's sprawling open world certainly looks to be putting the "massively" back into massively multiplayer.

    Your hand must be raw.

    On another note, they have mentioned underwater content and now this talk of "sea based" player housing makes me wonder if there will be any sort of underwater player housing (think the underwater cities in the most recent Anno game). Alternatively, having player made housing at sea to be used purely as a staging point for massive naval battles is equally as cool.

    Katiechops is "KC Games Inc." going to publish this or not ? :p

    The last time underwater housing was cool was in UFO: Terror From The Deep. It would be an interesting experiment! Though I guess, probably quite hard to pull off.

    This game might turn out so good that it gets cancelled!
