Archlord 2 closes its doors.

Archlord 2 is set to close its doors on November 24th 2015. In a statement on the official website the team behind the failed game had the following to say;

Dear Chantrans,

Today, we have some very sad news for you. Unfortunately, the time has come for Archlord 2 to close its doors for good. In roughly 2 months’ time, on November 24th 2015, the servers for Archlord 2 will be deactivated and it will no longer be possible to play the game after that.

Archlord 2 has been a great adventure for all of us, and we sincerely hope that you have enjoyed your time with the game and the friends you made while playing it. We know we have.

Archlord 2 History

Although Archlord 2 has not been around as long as some other titles, it has had a quite impressive history. Over the course of its life, over 300,000 players have logged on to Archlord 2 for a combined total of over 5 million hours(that’s over 580 years!) of play-time.

Together we’ve released and enjoyed 7 major updates, along with numerous smaller content patches, events and other milestones. You have created more than 400,000 characters, ventured into nearly 1.5 million dungeons and fought on over 2,000 battlegrounds.

During this time, Chantra has had numerous rulers, memorialized in this Hall of Fame:

But everything must come to an end, and the time has come to say goodbye and farewell to Archlord 2.

Farewell Events

To make these last few weeks of the game as enjoyable as possible, a whole host of server buffs will be enabled, plenty of additional event content will be scheduled and the prices for all items in the in-game shop will be reduced to 0 Wcoin. This will take place during the scheduled maintenance for Tuesday, September 22nd.

The following buffs will be active for the remainder of Archlord 2:

  • Character Experience gain +100%
  • Weapon Mastery gain +100%
  • Gold gain +100%
  • Item drop rate +100%
  • Fame point gain +100%

(Please note: these increases apply only to gains made from killing monsters / opponents).

Looking toward the future

While we are naturally sad to see Archlord 2 go, keep in mind that the adventure does not end there. The Webzen.com portal features many great games, and we will shortly be adding some new titles, such as the recently announcedELOA, and ASTA – The War of Tears and Winds!

Alongside a general Wcoin refund, we will also be organizing special welcome gift packs for other WEBZEN titles (see FAQ section below).

We are truly grateful to all our loyal players and we hope that you have enjoyed your time with Archlord 2.
