ArchLord to get new episode

It's also going to be in a film. Yes really.

Codemasters Online has announced a free expansion for its free-to-play MMO, ArchLord. Episode 3: Spirits Awakening will go live "in the coming weeks", according to the company.

Spirits Awakening will add three new games zones, a bunch of new class skills, new abilities for the ruling ArchLord, new items and some new enemies to the PVP-focused MMO. Players of the Korean import compete to become the ruling character on their server.

ArchLord has seen half a million accounts created since it went free-to play, despite receiving a stinging response from the critics.

Bizarrely, it is also set to feature in a Belgian independent film about an obsessive gamer, due for release this summer.
