Trion Worlds recently announced that the closed beta for the eagerly anticipated free-to-play MMORPG, ArcheAge, is set to begin next Thursday, July 17th at 10:00 PDT / 1:00 EDT. The closed beta is expected to continue throughout the weekend until Monday, July 31st at the same times.
ArcheAge has enjoyed a long alpha testing phase over the last few months as the developers continue their localization efforts with the hopes of later releasing the client with multi-language support. According to the source the upcoming closed beta event will be in English, although there are plans for additional support further down the line.
To celebrate the closed beta announcement Trion Worlds have released an exciting new trailer showcasing the world of ArcheAge — which, by the way, was featured as one of our Top 10 Sandbox MMORPGs for 2014.
