Adventure Quest Worlds Reaches 9 Million Players

I first played Adventure Quest Worlds during open beta several months back and found it quite exiting. Previous Artix games like AdventureQuest, MechQuest, and DragonFable had all been single player games but AQ Worlds was a full fledged MMORPG using the same attractive art style. While 9 million registered accounts is quite an accomplishment, it’s more of a PR stunt than a meaningful statistic. I wonder how many active players the game has or how many  concurrent players it logs at peak? Those would be useful numbers which I’ll hunt for in the days ahead. In the mean time, if you haven’t tried AQ Worlds yet, now’s the perfect time. The game has undergone several major content updates since its open beta!


LAND O’LAKES, FLORIDA – JULY 16, 2009 — Artix Entertainment, creator of MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds, announced today the game has exceeded 9 million registered players. Since its launch in October, AdventureQuest Worlds has grown an average of 1.1 million new players every month.

“The spectacular growth rate of AQW shows no signs of slowing down, and we find that very gratifying,” said Adam Bohn, founder and CEO of Artix Entertainment. “The game’s appeal – in addition to chat, real-time combat, wars, and live events – is enhanced by our releasing at least one new game update every week since launch.”

AdventureQuest Worlds provides players with exciting adventures battling armies of monsters in real-time combat and new weekly quests. Players can customize their characters with armors, capes, helms, and custom-crafted weapons from the Blacksmith’s Shop at any level. Players have the freedom to change among different character classes at any time, and can level-up all of the classes to the max to unlock new skills and specialty shops along the way.
