ArcheAge features a massive, dynamic world designed to be filled with your adventures!
All players begin their journey on either the Nuia or Harihara continents. From there they explore the world, cooperating or competing with each other. Remnants of the Lost Continent, where the ancestors of the world's races lived together in peace two thousand years ago, still dominate the landscape. If you explore deep into the hearts of these ancient relics, you may discover the secrets of legendary gods and heroes. Or you may reveal more details about the catastrophe that caused the Nuia and Harihara schism. It all depends on your choices.
The results of ArcheAge's storytelling process is determined by the choices you make. You can cooperate with your enemies, win fame by helping people in danger, or become a renowned craftsman by making fine items or producing exceptional crops. You can build a house and found a new town. You can be a sailor and sail around the world. You can be a lord of a castle and rule your territory.
Whatever kind of life you choose, there is a place for you in ArcheAge's world. The sea is not just a big pool you can swim in. On the open ocean, you can hear the explosions of cannons fired from a crumbling castle, the roars of a dragon flying overhead, or bawdy sailor songs echoing from a ship slicing through the waves. You can go anywhere and can do anything. You can choose your goal in life and fulfill it in any way you want.
Every decision you make could begin a new chapter in the history of ArcheAge.

The size of ArcheAge’s world is expected to exceed the size of WoW's.
Currently there are three continents available, one of which can be conquered by players. On that wild continent groups of players can establish towns/castles and attack (siege) their enemy’s homesteads. The remaining two continents seem to be at war with each other, setting the stage for more destruction.
ArcheAge’s world is seamless (no loading screens) and you can travel between continents with the help of your very own boat!
