Webzen is now serving up an Open Beta for players interested in trying out their latest MMORPG, Archlord 2. Self described as a “Brutal PvP MMO” Archlord 2 offers players the opportunity to join one of two factions and battle it out across a variety of PvP scenarios including 400 player battlegrounds and open world contested zones.
The move to open beta comes with a patch that increases the level cap from 30 to 41, adds the Aquila Arena Skirmish, increases basic attack speeds by 20% and slightly adjusts how secondary attributes are calculated.
While Archlord 2 features a fair amount of instanced dungeons to tackle, Webzen will be primarily focused on monitoring PvP during the Open Beta in order to fine-tune combat over the course of the summer. Regardless of which style of content you focus on though, Webzen wants to remind players that Archlord 2 is an MMO focused on party-based content and not solo questing.
For this reason, Webzen is recommending players try and group up as much as possible to enjoy their time within the MMO. It also doesn’t hurt to have someone watching your back as you gather crafting resources in a contested zone.
