When it launches in Q3, 2006, ArchLord will deliver a unique competitive premise to MMO gamers: the opportunity to rise to become the game world's supreme ruler.

Every month, one player will take control of the world and with it the opportunity to wreak havoc on their cowering enemies as the player gains control of supreme global Archlord powers!

David Solari, Director of Codemasters Online Gaming, commented: "ArchLord is an incredibly important signing for Codemasters Online Gaming and NHN has delivered an amazing world and a unique player objective. This incredible feature, where players compete to become the Archlord and personally shape the game world, has never been seen before in any MMO. It's sure to capture the imaginations of Western gamers and make Archlord a landmark MMO launch for 2006."

Jung Hwan Kim, Senior Manager of Overseas Business Team at NHN Games commented: "We are overjoyed to be working with the online gaming division at Codemasters to bring ArchLord to Western gamers. Codemasters has a proven pedigree in PC publishing and massive ambitions in the MMO sector with a great team that we were keen to work with on such an important next-generation MMO title as ArchLord."

The game's world, Kantra, is fantastically realised with stunning visuals, created using Renderware, and the game features incredibly atmospheric in-game audio recorded by the world famous London Symphony Orchestra.

ArchLord will also introduce one of the most advanced and complex PVP combat systems ever in any MMO, which utilises sprawling free battle areas and special guild battlefields that enables players to battle in fearsome guild versus guild battles.

With an ever-evolving storyline of conquest and betrayal, ArchLord presents an epic adventure in which players band together as they quest for the ancient relics of the Archons. Each relic bestows incredible power on those who possess it and when relics are combined they deliver ultimate mastery over the fundamental forces of creation for there can only be one Archlord!

"We are extremely pleased to add ArchLord to our ever growing and exciting MMO portfolio," said Ed Relf, Head of Marketing for Codemasters Online Gaming. "ArchLord is a fresh take on the MMO genre, bringing incredible key new features and mixing them with already popular elements that appeal to both a new wave of players and established MMO gamers."

ArchLord will launch in Q3 2006 and will be published and operated in North America and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming, the company's recently formed online entertainment division.
