Title: ArchLord
Format: PC
Developer: NHN Games
Publisher: Codemasters
Release: Q3 2006

ArchLord is a fantasy themed MMORPG that holds a unique competitive premise for gamers: the opportunity to rise to become the game world's supreme ruler. Throughout this epic quest-based role-playing title set in the game world’s Middle Ages, every month one player will gain control of the world and with it the opportunity to wreak havoc as they are crowned supreme ArchLord.

The ArchLord player ascension system revolves around a player securing three holy relics known as Archons. ArchLord’s game world is the mystical land Chantra, and play is set deep within the world’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, Chantra’s diverse and challenging landscape holds three immense castles, each fiercely protected from those who wish to enter. To challenge for the castles’ 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.

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 PC, in North America and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming in Q3 2006.
