Despite ancient Mayan prophecy, Artix Entertainment’s AdventureQuest Worlds will not allow the world to end on December 21st

LUTZ, FLORIDA - December 14, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, browser-based RPGs to over 150 million registered players, announced today how its popular MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds refuses to let the world end on December 21 st, 2012. Even though the Mayans predicted the world would end on this fateful day, Artix’s heroes know that this is only the beginning.

Mayans may have been expert astronomers, but the 30 million players of AdventureQuest Worlds are expert warriors. Brandishing their broadswords and summoning their spells, heroes of every Class have joined together to take down Kezeroth the World Ender. Chronomancers, Chornocorruptors, TimeKillers, and upgraded Members play particularly important roles with exclusive rewards to aid the worldwide (web) salvation.

It is up to the players to determine what will happen on December 21 st. Will the heroes be able to save the world? Or did the Mayans have it right all along? There is only one way to find out. Join the ongoing adventures of AdventureQuest Worlds at and Battle On!
