Archlord Opens a New Server

SEOUL, KOREA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  WEBZEN (NASDAQ: WZEN), announces the updated schedule for Archlord.

South Korean online game developer and publisher unveiled its plans to introduce a new Archlord server, festivity events to celebrate the 2010 international soccer tournament, and a new in-game feature called 'Buddy System.'

Opening a New Server
On May 27, 2010, a new game server 'Serend' will open, providing an easy access and a stabilized network environment for North and South American users. The in-game support from GM will be improved dramatically. Furthermore, all game features and events are implemented based on the local time zone.

Archlord is now inviting gamers in North and South America to the 'Serend' sever. To provide more gaming experiences, the server will be set up to 300% EXP as well as 200% Drop rates for a month. Also, Character Transfer Service is offered to the regional players who formerly played Archlord from the other servers.

A New Method for Enhancing Player Interaction, Buddy System
Archlord is preparing a new in-game feature called 'Buddy System' to improve the interaction between users. By adding friends to the Buddy List, the system will provide a linkage between users, allowing each of them to get extra rewards every time they clear various in-game quests and missions.

Meanwhile, Archlord is planning on celebrating the 2010 international soccer tournament by featuring festive events. Players can make their guesses on who will win the matches and collect the symbol of that team.
