Webzen Pulling the Plug on Archlord January 1st

Happy New Year! Archlord gets to start 2014 off in the worst possible way - with a cancellation.

If you were planning on gaming it up in Archlord to bring in the New Year, enjoy it. It will be your last. Webzen recently announced that they will officially pull the plug on Archlord on Wednesday, January 1st, 2014. Webzen will disable the game download option on Wednesday, December 11th, 2014, so if you need to download the client to get in a few final weeks of gameplay, do so before then.

The upside for fans is that they will once again have a chance to explore the world Archlord when Archlord 2 launches in the “near future.” For now, enjoy what time you have left and check out the official announcement message below for more details.

Dear Archlord Players,

We regret to inform you that Archlord will no longer be available. Please rest assured that this is merely a short break for those who inhabited the world of Archlord. We will be back in the near future with Archlord 2 to provide you further adventures!

On August of 2009, Webzen.com was thrilled to release Archlord globally. Since official launch, we have been working hard to build a strong community and gaming environment through new content updates and various events. Unfortunately, we have come to a difficult decision to end this long journey we have enjoyed and cherished together. We understand that this will disappoint many of our players. Over the years, you have made new friends throughout the years, forged camaraderies within your guilds, fought in an epic fashion for the right to call yourselves the Archlord. We, too, have loved being a part of this game, and learned a lot throughout the service period.

Although we cannot provide more enjoyment through Archlord, we wish to continuously provide a full gaming experience to all our players. Below you will be able to find many exciting games that are serviced by Webzen.com, gPotato.eu, gPotato.com. Additionally, we hope to see you all in the future once Archlord 2 is released, where current Archlord players shall be rewarded for their continued support in this new world.

We will be disabling client downloads and cash shop for the game on the 11th of December. The game will be closed on January 1st. To thank all of our players for their years of support, starting on December 11th, we'll be having a 400% EXP and Drop Event for players to enjoy until the game's closure. Additionally, we'll be having a Compensation Page detailing more information in regards to the closure set up in the upcoming weeks.

Once again, we thank you for the experiences and enjoyment shared through Archlord and look forward to seeing you in Archlord 2.
