Lineage II Rekindles Retail Presence – Bigger And Better Than Ever

NCsoft Europe Celebrates The Long Term Success Of The World's Favourite Massively Multiplayer Franchise With New Retail Offering

Tuesday 27 June 2006/...NCsoft® Europe has made the new retail package for Lineage® II: The Chaotic ChronicleTM, which contains the latest update, Chronicle 4: Scions of DestinyTM available across Europe. Worldwide, Lineage II is one of the most dominant titles in the MMO market, having reached more than 14-million customers in just over two years, and continues to grow as NCsoft takes the game into additional territories.

The Chronicle 4 update was one of the largest and most ambitious MMO updates ever - the world became a full one third larger, and gained a brand new castle. The layout of Goddard Castle added further variety to the unique castle sieges in the game, strengthening Lineage II's position as the premier MMO for PvP enthusiasts.

In addition to the extensive increase in playing area, Lineage II players also have the opportunity to take on a new dragon, Valakas. Other features include new character classes, a Hero and Noblesse system - allowing players to become a legend in their world, and every adventurer's favourite past time - fishing.

Chronicle 5 will be released later in the year, and will also be free to subscribers.

The newly-updated Lineage II is available in stores now, priced £19.99/19.99. For more information, please head to http://eu.lineage2.com/
