Is ArcheAge Free to Play?

Will ArcheAge be f2p? I know it is unannounced yet but does anyone have ANY news at all? I'm pretty sure many ppl wanna know something about this with NA release approaches.

Jake Song in a interview said that the game will be F2P. I remember reading that on this site, so... probably should be F2P.

    AFAIK he never said that it will be free to play.

    Only interview I read (and I read a few) that he answered business model question , he stated that it was not decided yet and they are open for all possibiliteis.


    Here is a link to this interview with Jake Song. So no it is not F2P , not P2P , is is To be Decided.

    Also mmorpg.com has ArcheAge correctly labeled as TBA or n/a.

    MMOSite has it wrongly labeled as f2p , no other major website has it labeled like that.

    With ArcheAge beign complex as it is I think it will be better for gameplay if it is p2p tbh.

    yeah,it would be f2p,it seems that I once saw in one forum about it.

    The game have been confirm to be Free to play for KR, but if a company buy the game and open it up for N/a they can make it P2P

      I downloaded it and not paid any charge for downloading this yet.  One of my friends paid for this and had many other options along with this, and would like to have complete information regarding this. Please produce some more attachments regarding the latest updates in these.

        I'm afraid they will include Subscription fee into this game since .. You know TRION and their business models .

        They might make it B2P in the worst cases who knows

        Nov 24, 2013 6:26 pm
        hope this game will be f2p

          My source within Trion, who wishes to remain anonymous, states that they are going to try something different with ArcheAge: An hourly pricing model. The standard model in Chinese MMORPGs for years, this model gives away the game software for free, but players are charged a few cents an hour while logged into the game. This has obvious advantages for casual players who don’t tend to spend a lot of time in game, but has clear drawbacks for those dedicated players who like to spend many hours raiding, playing in PvP battles, or just roleplaying the night away!

          “We think this model has many upsides for a game like ‘ArcheAge’,” my source said, “Being a sandbox MMO with many different activities for players to enjoy at their whim, we feel giving players the ability to ‘Pay as they Play’ gives them the most flexibility, while not gouging them for subscription time they may not be using.”

          But what about the dedicated players? Won’t they be forced to spend more overall than they would with a regular subscription?

          “Not at all,” my source advised, “because our pricing structure is built around keeping the costs low for all players. Right now we are looking at charging $0.035 per hour, which works out to only $0.35 per day, if one plays for 10 hours a day. Over a standard 30 day month, a customer who played 10 hours a day, every single day of the month, would pay no more than $10.50 on the game, which is quite the bargain compared to standard monthly subscription rates.”

          That would be a good price model, and competitively would probably pull Runescape players: Jagex Runescape is the currently cheapest model at a 8 dollar sub. which would almost match this model of paying per hour.
