The Trion Worlds team recently returned from a trip to Korea following a meeting with ArcheAge developers XLGames in which they discussed upcoming new content, mechanic adjustments and the availability of the often requested character & server transfer ability. ArcheAge enjoyed a successful launch under a free-to-play banner and continues to prove popular as over 1 million players have registered their interest to play.
The Western community has been a little sour of late as they learned the Korean version of ArcheAge has long featured the ability to transfer character between servers, but the time restraints and manual work involved has limited such a feature launching in the West. In a new post on the official forums Community Manager Scapes offers players additional details on the reasoning’s behind the delay of Western character transfers and also addresses concerns surrounding server merges and community shakeups.
[quote cite=”Scapes, Community Manager “]We do not currently have plans to merge servers in the traditional sense. Instead, we plan something altogether different and look forward to revealing the plan as soon as we work out the details.
As we get closer to being able to offer server transfers, a list of frequently-asked questions will be published well in advance of the service being made available. We welcome your feedback about this on the forums and look forward to being able to allow you to change which server your hero calls home!
