Free ArchLord expansion released

Loads more content, user-base flourishes.

Codemasters Online has rolled out a free and meaty expansion for ArchLord, boosting content in the MMO by around 30 per cent.

More specifically, Episode 3: Spirits Awakening adds three new zones, 80 new skills, plenty more armour, plus lots more fantasy monsters and bosses to macro to death.

Meanwhile, those crowned as ArchLord will gain access to brand new skills and abilities, which should make the weeks and maybe years invested feel worthwhile.

ArchLord, released towards the end of 2006, now also boasts 750,000 accounts, and claims 20,000 fresh faces are joining the battle each week.

Of course, the turnaround success of the poorly-reviewed MMO comes off the back of Codemasters Online dropping the monthly subscription.

It's also worth remembering that those figures are not entirely representative of current users, as there's no reason to close a free and inactive account.
