Twenty days ago, Archlord 2 had its last update…literally. Today, Webzen announced that the free to play MMORPG will be shutting down on November 24th, 2015. No official reason is given in the announcement, but a few “lifetime” stats regarding the game’s playerbase are:
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.
Between now and shutdown, players can take advantage of 100% boosts to experience, gold drop rates, item drop rates, and fame gains. Guild versus Guild competitions and the El Dorado map will continue to operate on a timed schedule through November 24th.
Players may be eligible for a refund of the Wcoin they’ve purchased since April 1st, 2015 but you have to have spent over a certain threshold that isn’t advertised. If you qualify, you’ll receive an email detailing how to get your refund. Once refunded, Wcoin can be spent in other Webzen titles.
Webzen is encouraging players to stay tuned to the upcoming ELOA and ASTA releases. You can check out the official shutdown announcement on the Archlord 2 website.
