Archlord II has finished up with its closed beta, and is now opening its doors for all comers for its open beta.


Archlord 2_01

The open beta will allow you to choose only one race, and cap players at level 40. During the open beta, evening hours for each server will run three different battlegrounds for testing purposes and so you can get a feel for fighting.

Archlord II’s player versus environment sections will also be open for testing, and if you think you can cut it, you’ll even be allowed to enter dungeons all by your lonesome. The game also insists it isn’t a key spamming game, instead requiring players to master chaining attacks and filling them in with other attacks in-between.

The MMORPG is heavily focused on the player-versus-player aspect, with gamers picking from one of either the Azuni or Crunn sides. Eventually, you’ll get to take part in massive battles where one player on the server gets crowned Archlord. Said player gets special benefits unique to the leader of the realm till the next big fight.


Archlord II is in open beta on PC now.

  • Looks good for what it is, but I hate old-school MMO combat. I prefer action-style by far. Heck, even straight up turn-based, for the few I can think of that do it (Atlantica Online, and uh… Celes Arca?). I mean, at least then you got real strategy. But this stuff? I get why games in the late 90’s did it; I have no real clue why some games do it now. At least move on to the more dynamic stuff like you see in Guild Wars 2 or Wildstar. Oh well.

    It’s no Black Desert, FFXIV or Kingdom Under Fire 2, but it does look pretty great. Hope people enjoy it.

    Archlord 2 after a million years of part 1 lol wtf. No mooncats or whatever they were?

    I remember trying part 1 and hating it. Just felt very low budget.

    I’ve been into MMOs lately. Should I touch this as well or ignore?

      There are better options out there, though no one can decide for you. You could watch some youtube gameplay vids and see if the game impresses you.
