New ArcheAge Cinematic Trailer Shows a Lady Stripping in Front of a Horde of Monsters

The fifth phase of the closed beta of ArcheAge is going to start in about five minutes, and XLGAMES is celebrating the occasion by releasing a new and brief cinematic trailer teasing the story of the game.

The teaser titled “Queen’s Army” is quite cryptic, showing just a lady removing her clothes and standing in her birthday suit in front of an army of ravenous monsters. Besides the obvious innuendo, I can’t help but wonder what it means in terms of story, but I guess we’ll have to wait for a full fledged story trailer to understand that.

ArcheAge definitely took a sharp steer towards a mature target when it was recently re-rated 18+ by the Korean Game Rating Board, resulting in all the accounts belonging to underage gamers terminated without appeal. This trailer seems to go rather clearly in that direction as well.

In the meanwhile, my beta client is ready for the opening of the floodgates. You can expect extensive coverage soon. While you wait, you can enjoy the trailer below.
