RaiderZ is an upcoming free-to-play MMORPG developed by MAIET Entertainment and published in North America by Perfect World Entertainment and in Europe by Gameforge Berlin AG. The game puts players in the roles of Berserker, Cleric, Defender, and Sorcerer, in order to defend the kingdom of Rendel from hordes of colossal and vicious beasts. Countless creatures are being awakened and mutated by the Prime Stone, and have begun to slip through the last weakening barrier between human and beast, and it’s up to players to beat them back and save Rendel from destruction.
Perfect World has posted a note on the RaiderZ Arc page to let players know that the game will be shutting down for good on August 10th. It appears that the game's developer, MAIET, is, or has also, shut down. Without a developer to keep the game running, the post goes on, there is no one to troubleshoot the game, etc.
