WEBZEN Inc., the Next Generation of
Free-to-Play Online Games, announced the update schedule of the MMORPG Archlord
for the second half of 2012, which will start on July 18th (GST) with the
renewed Battle Ground and major enhancements for the abilities of the Archlord.
The Battle Ground, where battles between the races take place, will be renewed.
First, the location of the Center of Chaos will be randomized from that of the
previous middle location for more dynamic battles. Also, the most powerful item,
Absolute Armor Set will be added where players can further upgrade them with
combination materials acquired from the Battle Ground.
For the update of the absolute ruler of Chantra, Archlord, its abilities will be
increased significantly to emphasize the honor of its existence. To add to this
honor, the Archlord will also receive new unique items and skills that no other
can match to.
Future contents will be continuously added, where in August, large scaled battle
contents, items, and redesigned user-oriented UI will be updated. This will be
followed by various instant dungeons updated later this year.
Jihun Lee, Head of Global Publishing, said, "We are constantly developing new
contents of Archlord for the players." He also said, "We hope for continuous
interest on the newly improved Archlord and through the major updates that are
scheduled across the second half of this year."
Meanwhile, WEBZEN.com?s another MMORPG Soul of the Ultimate Nation, will have an
event that provides a Jumping Potion allowing new created characters to
immediately reach level 111, and also will be provided with first elite full
armor. Future updates will include the highly anticipated new character MIO, an
instance dungeon for PvP, and new in-game regions.
