Recently NCSoft announced that their Fantasy MMORPG Lineage II is to become a Free to Play MMO. Details were vague and the developers spoke of accelerated progression for new and current players, while all content would be unlocked for a ‘truly free’ experience. NCSoft is back with another announcement, and this time the details are aplenty. Come November 30th 2011, Lineage 2 will be unlocked for everybody, no zone, level, or player interaction restrictions will be placed on free accounts, once again enforcing that truly free message. To help new players, the developers have introduced new website features such as a levelling guide and item shop.
- The Discovery Pack – For the casual player who plays for short periods to discover Lineage II. This pack includes a sizeable number of support items plus special bonuses including an R-grade Weapon Seal Scroll and an R-grade Top-Grade Life Stone designed to bring players more fun in short bursts of time.
- The Adventure Pack – For the determined player who likes challenges. This pack includes the bonus items from the Discovery Pack, an R-grade Weapon Enchant Scroll as well as other support items, designed to speed players ahead of most others on the way to Awakening.
- The Destiny Pack – For the Lineage II grandmaster intent on transcending the rest. Along with the bonus items from the Adventure and Destiny Packs, a huge number of support items and a special item that differs every month, players will receive a R-grade Unbind Scroll until the end of December.
