Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle Summary
A fantasy mmo that's made ever more surreal by its art style and hidden beneath that is a grinding mega-fest.
When people think of Asian MMOs, South Korean-based Lineage is the game that usually springs to mind, and more or less put NCSoft on the map.
NCSoft has revealed details regarding the upcoming "Tauti" update to their MMO Lineage II. The update will include changes to castle sieges, hunting zones like the Fortress Guillotine high level area.
NCsoft are happy to announce that the Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction update is now live, which means the MMO is now officially free-to-play.
NCsoft has announced that one of the largest MMOs in the world, Lineage II, will be going free-to-play. The conversion will be timed with the release of its upcoming update, Goddess of Destruction. The update is the largest in the MMO's history, which NCsoft claims features more than 400 hours of new content.
More is better, yes? Well, no, NCsoft's Jeremy Gaffney of Carbine Studios 'worries' that a MMO mass market will actually scare studios into conformity.
He said the "great thing" about early day MMOs like Asheron's Call and Ultima Online was that they "experimented" and "weren't afraid" of their differences.
