Archlord is a free-to-play dark fantasy MMORPG where the main focus for players is to become the game world’s supreme ruler. Each month, one player will win control of the mystical world of Chantra and be allowed to rule wisely or wreak havoc, as they see fit. Heavy on PvP, Archlord also has PvE, group, guild, and siege warfare modes available. Players may select from four races and nine classes, along with a variety of combat and crafting skills. Players may also explore across a host of map locations, including cities, fields, dungeons, battlegrounds, elemental worlds, and the Chaotic Frontier.
Fans of the upcoming Archlord 2 will want to head to the official site to sign up for beta testing. The first round of the CBT is scheduled to kick off on Tuesday, June 17th.
