Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne - Overview and Screenshots

An overview by Lineage II producer, Adam Davidson (North America)

Thursday 8th March/...NCsoft, today, release an interesting overview of Lineage® II: The Chaotic Throne by its producer, Adam Davidson accompanied by screenshots.

In April 2007, Lineage® II starts an exciting new chapter as The Chaotic Chronicle comes to an end and The Chaotic Throne begins. Interlude, the next game update, is the opening of the Lin eage II: The Chaotic Throne saga.

Interlude will add a new area as well as new skills and items for high level players, and lay the foundation for the innovative changes coming in later updates of The Chaotic Throne.

Interlude

In Interlude, high level players will venture to an undiscovered island teeming with savage creatures, where they will face terrifying new foes. This is no place for the faint of heart - it will take teamwork and strategy to survive on this dangerous island. The mighty Tyrannosaurus dwells in the heart of this lush jungle and it will not be an easy task to defeat it. But the challenge is worth the risk! On this isle you will find unique monsters, quests for clans and parties, and more.

High level players will also gain new skills to attack their enemies and encourage teamwork with their party and clan members. With the additional skills they receive in Interlude, players can call new pet allies to their side; employ a colossal weapon against enemies in a siege, and more.

Players who wish to hone their new skills against their allies before taking on their enemies can challenge their friends with the dueling system coming in Interlude. Players can choose to take on their friends one-on-one, or battle party vs. party. There are no penalties for defeat, so players are free to let loose and truly test their mettle.

A new technique to further enhance their weapons will give mid-level and high-level players over 150 new bonuses, allowing the player to customize a powerful and unique weapon. Lower level players can also take advantage of new Shadow Weapons, a "try before you buy" service offered by the village weapon vendors.

Immense fortresses will be scattered across the lands of Aden and Elmore in Interlude, laying the foundation for exciting Player vs. Player battles coming in later updates of The Chaotic Throne. Castle sieges and clan wars are just the beginning of large scale PvP combat!

The Chaotic Throne

Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne is the launch of a new adventure for all players as the game takes an exciting new direction. A new race is planned to make its debut in The Chaotic Throne, and new players and veteran players alike will be able to experience its new, distinctive play style.

New high-level items, massive Player vs. Player battles, and more are coming in The Chaotic Throne. Whether you're just beginning your adventures in Aden or have fought alongside your allies since the beginning, The Chaotic Throne will offer many exciting features and areas to explore and conquer.
