In a really unexpected move, NCsoft announced the 3rd title for the Lineage series, Lineage Eternal, at a pre-G*Star 2011 press conference earlier november. And yes, Lineage Eternal - Twilight Resistance will be a new title, not an update to Lineage II. According to reports, combat will be action based with players able to make use of objects to their advantage. The game is slated to enter Closed Beta later in 2012, with its debut trailer coming in 2 days' time.
The storyline for Lineage Eternal - Twilight Resistance is somewhat similar in terms of fantasy value. detailing the rise of heroes after 200 years of tyranny under the kingdom. Eventually, the world fell under the rule of evil forces, leading to a group of young heroes determined to right the wrong and standing up against them.
One of the main features will be PvE and PvP combat, with the screen littered with opponents and allies in a grand war of unsurpassed scale. There will be chaos no doubt, but apparently it will be going the way similar to Dynasty Warriors with all the crazy amount of objects, enemies and players on the screen at the same time.
As everyone already knows, the biggest and most expensive Lineage 2 upgrade, since its launch in 2003 in Korea, was released this year.
After almost 8 years and countless upgrades, NCSoft, the company that created this game, has decided to do an extreme makeover and change the style that made it famous.
This is where “The Goddess of Destruction” upgrade comes in. It introduces new gameplay elements, a new graphic engine, new classes and over 200 new items.
