  SEOUL, KOREA, Jul 15 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
WEBZEN (NASDAQ: WZEN) is pleased to announce an overhaul of its popular
MMORPG Archlord, in the shape of the all-new, FREE Expansion Episode 5:
The Grand Cross. Due to go live in the coming weeks, Episode 5: The Grand
Cross will add a new battle system called The Battle Ground into the
existing PvP system in Archlord. 

    Based on the game scenario, the new content patch will deliver a new
race-versus-race Battle Ground, capable of supporting every Archlord
player to provide unique and interesting PvP challenges in the never
ending conflict between the three races Human, Orc and Moonelf.

    Race vs race
 Unlike the other PvP content such as The Siege Warfare, The
Battle Ground includes a new race-versus-race style, massive war content
which will be held on every Thursday and Sunday. You will be needed to be
a part of an army of your race, regardless of which guild you are in or
the level of your character. 

    To win the battle
 Players must work to dominate the most advantageous
position in the Battle Ground, infiltrate the enemy base and kill their
opponents as well as their enemy heroes in their fortress. The first
faction to destroy the other races' hero before the time expires will win
the battle.

    Heroes, resurrected
 Once you enter the Battle Ground, you will be inside
a fort. You will find on your first arrival that the well-known great
heroes from the Archlord ancient history are placed at the fortress to
lead their own kind. Masterfully depicted from the CG movies, the great
heroes of Archlord; Zian, Ugdrasil and Gracia will be stood there waiting
for players to join them. You must protect the hero of your kind while
destroying your opponent heroes to win the battle.

    Victory and rewards
 The three races will contend for a victory, which
will be basically the ultimate goal of the Battle Ground. Winning the
battle will not only make your race famous for being the most powerful
race in the Chantra continent, but also you will gain a special race
spirit ability, absorbed from the defeated race, which will make you and
the other members of your race stronger.

    Additionally, Charisma Points which are obtained by killing opposing side
players or monsters can be used as a currency to earn both honor and
exclusive realm items at the Charisma Gate.

    New Features of Archlord Episode 5: The Grand Cross Include:
 New battle
ground, the race-vs-race war zone 
 New realm monsters and raid bosses

New collectible armor sets with unique stats 
 New Character Ability: The
Charisma Point
 More feature information is available at its preview page.
