ArcheAge’s next big thing has a release date in the west: 5.0 Relics of Hiram is launching in just two weeks on October 24th. As we’ve previously noted, the update includes a new zone, new gear, and new skillset. “ArcheAge 5.0 – Relics of Hiram introduces players to the all-new Western Hiram Mountains zone, where they will face and conquer challenges, attain new gear, and increase their Ancestral level! Additionally, the new expansion will introduce the 11th skillset to the fold: Malediction! Adding a whopping 45 new class combinations to the mix, Malediction enables players to master powerful dark magic to exploit their enemies’ weaknesses while empowering themselves. […] The expansion brings even more features and improvements for ArcheAge, including an increase to the Ancestral level cap, enhanced house customizations, new achievements, and more.” ArcheAge fans should check out Khrolan’s producer’s letter later today for the lowdown on the pre-5.0 events and server evolutions, then check out recaps of the last couple of streams, where Trion’s been previewing some of the 5.0 mechanics changes.
