WBEZEN have released a new gameplay trailer and details for Archlord II, the MMORPG which is currently inviting players to pre-register for the closed beta.
To provide an engaging and a largely unrestricted environment, Archlord 2 introduces an effectively classless character system that will allow players to adopt any role in combat, depending on the type of weapon a player uses.
There are four different weapon types 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 correspond to 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.
In addition to this classless system, Archlord 2 offers an engaging combat system featuring so called 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 the next skill for a certain amount of time. With perfect timing and the right order of attacks, chained skills will allow players to inflict great damage to the unaware monsters and, more importantly, to other players.
To provide as much information as possible before the Close Beta Test commences, the Archlord 2 Community Management team is working on an official game Wikia page. To find out more about the combat system, available archetypes and the lore of Archlord 2, visit: http://archlord2.wikia.com/.
