Webzen just released a new trailer for the PvP focused free MMORPG Archlord 2 as well as a few details on the character archetypes, skills and combat. Archlord 2 will feature a classless character system that will allow players to adopt any role in combat, depending on their choice of weapon, a system similar to games such as RaiderZ.
There are four different types of weapons in Archlord 2, reflecting the number of character archetypes or combat roles available to players. Equipping a weapon of a specific type will give players access to a set of skills that corresponds with a specific archetype. Using weapons of a certain type will build proficiency with that weapon type and allow players to access additional passive and active skills.
Archlord 2 offers a combat system featuring chained skills.Chained skills can only be used in conjunction with each other and only in a fixed order. In combat, they are used as combo attacks. Players will be able to start a combo attack by using the first skill in the chain, and a successful attack will enable next skill to be available for a certain time. With perfect timing and right order of attacks, chained skills will allow players to inflict great damage to the unaware monsters, but most importantly, to other players.
Archlord 2 will be available in English, German and French language versions.
Archlord 2 is currently in pre-registration, and all players interested in joining the closed beta can pre-register on the game’s official website at http://archlord2.com.
