New ArcheAge Trailer Showcases Housing, Shopping, Pets and Mounts

on August 7, 2012 12:58 PM

The fifth phase of the closed beta of the sandbox MMORPG ArcheAge is right around the corner, and today XLGAMES released a new trailer of the game to wet our appetite.

The video showcases Mirage Island, that will basically work as a shopping mall, allowing players to preview and purchase all kinds of products, from houses to siege engines, pets and mounts.

We also get a glimpse on some of the new ethnic housing options, and on the new pet system, that includes combat pets and allows players to grow their little friend into a mount they can ride.

Say what you will about being hyped about a game that doesn’t even have a western publisher yet, but I am. XLGAMES Is already showing the game to the western press (yours truly included, so expect coverage from the closed beta), so an announcement on that front can’t really be too far, can it?
