Codemasters announces ArchLord MMORPG

Codemasters Online Gaming signs MMORPG: rise to power as the all-conquering ArchLord and control the game world. ArchLord, one of the most anticipated MMORPGs currently in open beta service in Korea, has been secured for distribution and operation across North America and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming. ArchLord is the creation of NHN Games, one of the biggest Korean MMO developers and publishers. When it launches in Q3, 2006, ArchLord will deliver a unique competitive premise to MMO gamers: the opportunity to rise to become the game world's supreme ruler.

Every month, one player will take control of the world and with it the opportunity to wreak havoc on their cowering enemies as the player gains control of supreme global Archlord powers!

The game's world, Kantra, is fantastically realised with stunning visuals, created using Renderware, and the game features incredibly atmospheric in-game audio recorded by the world famous London Symphony Orchestra.

ArchLord will also introduce one of the most advanced and complex PVP combat systems ever in any MMO, which utilises sprawling free battle areas and special guild battlefields that enables players to battle in fearsome guild versus guild battles.

With an ever-evolving storyline of conquest and betrayal, ArchLord presents an epic adventure in which players band together as they quest for the ancient relics of the Archons. Each relic bestows incredible power on those who possess it and when relics are combined they deliver ultimate mastery over the fundamental forces of creation for there can only be one Archlord!

"We are extremely pleased to add ArchLord to our ever growing and exciting MMO portfolio, " said Ed Relf, Head of Marketing for Codemasters Online Gaming. "ArchLord is a fresh take on the MMO genre, bringing incredible key new features and mixing them with already popular elements that appeal to both a new wave of players and established MMO gamers."

ArchLord will launch in Q3 2006 and will be published and operated in North America and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming, the company's recently formed online entertainment division.
