New York (March 17, 2006) - Codemastersâ€™ official website for ArchLord, the MMORPG where one player will rule the world, is now live at www.archlordgame.com. In addition to revealing the first details of the unique ArchLord player ascension system, the site also carries the game movie â€˜Episode 1: The Legend of Chantra.â€™
With its unique competitive premise, ArchLord is a fantasy based MMORPG unlike no other in todayâ€™s market and due to launch in Q3 2006. The ArchLord system, which sees one player rise to become the game worldâ€™s supreme ruler for a month, revolves around a player securing three holy relics known as Archons.
ArchLordâ€™s game world is the mystical land Chantra, and play is set deep within the worldâ€™s Middle Ages. In order to challenge for the ArchLord crown, players embark on specific quests to gain great knowledge surrounding the true history of Chantra and the Archons that reside within.
Within its borders, Chantraâ€™s diverse and challenging landscape holds three immense castles, each fiercely protected from those who wish to enter. To challenge for the castlesâ€™ rule, players and their guilds must fight their way through a hoard of enemies, guardians of the sacred Archons.
Victory will yield reward in the form of an Archon and a summon to the battle arena. Here players are pitted against one another as they challenge for control of all three Archons. From here it is but a mere glimpse to being crowned ArchLord as you go head to head with the current monarch in a battle like no other. Success brings power! Death brings nothing but sorrow. Win your fight and be crowned the ArchLord!
Boasting eight playable classes to choose from including Human Archers, Knights and Mages, Orc Berserkers, Hunters, and Shaman or the ever so delectable Moon Elf Spiritualist & Elementalist, ArchLord will be published, exclusively for Windows PC, in North America and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming in Q3 2006.
