All Gone! We've got beta keys for ArcheAge, an MMO with the ethos of Eve

ArcheAge: the good sort of piracy.

UPDATE: Sorry all keys have been given out.

ArcheAge - pronounced Arr-chee-ahh-jee, probably - is chasing the one thing MMOs lack: a sense of permanence. In a genre where quests can be reset and progress undone in seconds, ArcheAge is about ownership: sailing the seas in a ship you’ve built yourself, or renting out land to other players.

Like the sound of that? Go on, then: grab a key for the beta beginning tomorrow.

Bash your details into the widget below, if you don’t mind - and make sure you’ve created and signed into a PCGamesN account before you do so. We'll keep you updated on this and future giveaways via Twitter and Facebook.

It’s important to note that these aren’t Steam codes - like proud allotment owners, MMO developers always make their own everything. You’ll need to visit the ArcheAge account page to redeem yours.

ArcheAge is exciting in the way Star Wars: Galaxies once was. That ship? You can captain a crew of friends from its wheel. But beware a life of piracy: your crimes could see you held to account in front of a player-run court and banished to an island for thieves. Or maybe you’ll use some of your booty to bribe the jury into a ‘not guilty’ verdict.

What was the last MMO you played that gave you that sort of freedom to make your (cross-shaped) mark on the map?

I played this game with a translated version of the Russian client a while back. It was fun and all but didn't seem to be anything for me due to its focused PvP gameplay.

What I enjoy from MMO's are the PvE aspect, running around with friends doing quests. There's PvE here as well, but the main focus is the PvP.

I wonder how (if at all) different the NA/EU version is compared to the Russian version, seeing that the RU version is already done (well, open beta, but we all know what open beta means in F2P MMO's).

Like you, I've always been more of a fan of PvE. Can you recommend any good ones?

If you like quality PvE content you have to try The Secret World. It has the best quests, "wold" (more like zones ...) design and, to some degree, dungeons. PvP is there, but totally optional and, imo, mostly broken and unbalanced. What I mean is that unless you join a "battleground" everyone is friend with everyone, like a WoW PvE server, without the faction controlled zones.

The Secret World is really awesome. The quests are puzzles that you gotta figure out the answer, so if you aren't into puzzles, I don't recommend it. You could also cheat ofc and look for a guide, but for me the fun is in figuring it out. guild wars 2 also has a very rich PVE content and the pvp isn't bad, but completely optional.

Interesting way to give out keys, not exactly getting one, but possibly if you're chosen.

We had some debates in our group about the pronunciation of the game's name until we watched a video with the devs. Conclusion? It's pronounced Ark Age. :) Here's a video with one of the devs (just Googled it and this was one of many that came up) introducing herself at about the 2:05 mark: http://youtu.be/2cvcTL8S4e4
