Archlord 2 to sunset on November 24

Just weeks after its Season of Siege patch came out, Archlord 2 announced that it will be shutting down on November 24th.

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,” the team posted. “We know we have.”

For the last two months of operation, Archlord 2 will make everything in its item shop free to buy and toss several permanent buffs on all of its players. Webzen is also refunding all Wcoin purchases made going back to April 1st, 2015.

ArchLord 2 came out in 2014 after its predecessor was shuttered. In its run, Archlord 2 accumulated 300,000 players and put out seven major updates.

I actually thought this one was moderately cute, in a “ahw look at how old it looks” sort of way.

It had a nice concept for weapon skill. You could decide where to put your weapon skill points. So you could be mainly ranger and put points in both bow and dagger.
The rest of the game was basically without any new ideas.
Seems Webzen is struggling to find a hit.

Robert80 That and making the cash shop items free for the remainder is also pretty classy.  Not that people would spend much money knowing it’s going to get shut down in 2 months, but still.

Yet another uninspired, generic MMO fails.. Good news. Keep this up for one more year and the industry might actually recover.

I remember looking into this game a couple of times a while back, and I saw no reason to even try it out. I am not surprised by this announcement.

Another MMO I´ve never played shutting down. Guess it wasn´t that popular.

I played the game for a day or two.  I figured it wouldn’t last a year.  It was very generic compared to the current lineup of games.  It felt 5 years out of date.  I’m sure it would have done better if it was released years ago.  I like the concept of the game but it really needed more polish and a more modern ui/quest/combat system.
I hate to see MMO sunsets.

At least the refunds and such are a classy way to go out.
The game had issues, the company wants to milk the mobile whales, and all that, I agree… but that’s still a classy move for an ending.

Archlord 2 is developed by NHN so yea since they’re moving to mobile they will shut it down

Giggilybits No. One at least had a cool concept…even if it didn’t work out so well. Two afaik was just a crappy generic clone. I never played it or even tried it though.

It was an awful game, even by cookie-cutter wow clone standards.

Killing a 9 year old game that had a specific flavor and an audience, to replace it with an overly generic new game was not a smart move. The intent was clearly to make people move from the older to the newer game, but who would do that when the newcomer hardly had anything in common beside the name?

Greaterdivinity Considering from the tag it looks like this was only covered two other times in MOP UP posts, I have no idea what this title was

Sucks for those that worked on publishing it out here for for whomever was actually playing and enjoying it, but this shutdown could be seen from lightyears away : /
