LOS ANGELES, CA – September 19. 2017 – After much anticipation, GAMEVIL and XLGAMES will officially release the upcoming MORPG ArcheAge Begins on October 25. ArcheAge Begins, developed with Unreal Engine 4 and based on the globally successful PC MMORPG ArcheAge, will be available on App Store and Google Play. ArcheAge Begins will feature compelling gameplay modes, outstanding visuals and innovative battle mechanics.

ArcheAge Begins is a 3D MORPG taking place in the same universe created by famed fantasy author Min-Hee Jeon. ArcheAge Begins will include over 30 special heroes from ArcheAge and an innovative “flip-card” battle system. Players will be able to tap-and-click a hero’s skill onto an enemy in strategic combat. Each hero will have a unique skill set, allowing for fun and interesting party compositions. ArcheAge Begins will also have many of ArcheAge’s gameplay features, such as fishing, trading and housing. Players who enjoy ArcheAge’s competitive game elements will gravitate towards ArcheAge Begins's Guild Battles, the game’s premier PvP combat mode successfully reproduced on mobile. Finally, ArcheAge Begins, made with Unreal 4 Engine, will be one of the more graphically advanced mobile games available at launch.

GAMEVIL and XLGAMES are proud to bring ArcheAge Begins to mobile gamers worldwide. ArcheAge Begins is based on the popular MMORPG, ArcheAge, which currently has players in over 60 countries. ArcheAge has performed well in North American and European markets, especially in Russia. The results from ArcheAge Begins’s previous global CBTs demonstrate a high participation rate for European and North American players, a market GAMEVIL has traditionally performed well in. GAMEVIL will heavily promote ArcheAge Begins leading up to the official launch date.
