London, 4 th December 2013 - NEXON Europe have the pleasure to announce a new title today that will launch early next year across the pan-European portal; Arcane Chronicles. The game is a browser-based, free-to-play, yet full-scale MMORPG that encompasses a vast world with over 30 beautifully painted field maps including over 10 deadly dungeons, and a number of features designed to improve player interaction and aid in the endless fun.

Introducing a richly detailed world of medieval fantasy to explore and interact with, the action is of a higher quality than most other browser-based MMORPGs and also promises a wide range of multi-user content, with various PvP content, Boss Raid, Guild Castle Siege and Mercenary System to take part in. Asynchronous duel ensures interaction with other players even when they’re not playing, and one can hire offline friends as mercenaries to receive assistance when required.


“We’re incredibly excited to announce the arrival of one of our most anticipated browser-based titles,” says Kenny Chang, Managing Director at NEXON Europe. “We’ve built a world that players can really immerse themselves in, with more than 1,000 quests playable on your own and with friends across a variety of landscapes and we’re looking forward to seeing what the community thinks.”

Players can select one of three different classes in the game to take on over 300 different monster types. Three skill trees are available for each class, with the ability for characters to switch skill trees mid-game at a small cost. Other features include gamble dungeon where you may win unique quests and rewards, crystal generator to enhance your weaponry and systems such as meditation and auto-hunt mode to allow a character to gain experience even when not actually playing.

The game will be serviced in English, German, Italian and French and can be easily accessed through any internet browser, using a new or existing Nexon Europe account. The plot based on a dark chronicle, the gameplay through dungeons and quests, and advanced convenience features make the game a perfect title for anyone who is into new adventures and classic role-playing games. Arcane Chronicles closed beta test will start in January 2014.
