Lineage 2: New Video Outlines the Future

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,614MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

NCSoft has released an epic new video that gives a bit of a peek into the minds of developers as they plan for the future of Lineage II. 

This eight minute movie which combines the ever-epic battle style with the new server wars concept gives us a look into the minds of the developers and how truly grand Lineage II can be.

We are proud of the 10 year history of Lineage II and there is plenty more history in the making as we advance into the future. A close viewing of the movie reveals not only that rich history but also insight about what is yet to come.

As always we thank you for your loyal support of our beloved game. As we approach the holiday season please know that we are hard at work charting the bright future of Lineage II!

Check it out on the Lineage II site.

    I was thinking the same thing. It was like Lineage Eternal or some such title wasn't it?

    No, Lineage Eternal is a somewhat forced perpective game, sort of looks like a more "epic" diablo" of sorts.

    Lineage 3 was scrapped and restarted.

    Ah okay then.

     

    I wish I could have played during Lineage 2's prime as I've heard some pretty awesome things about it.

    Lineage 2 is still a gem and worth checking out if you looking for something different then the linear quest hub themeparks that crowd the market today. Its one of those game that either you love it or hate it.

    It was my first mmo. And though ti wasnt' "quite" what I thought an mmo was going to be I managed to play for about 4.5 years.

    Though I must say that their movies were always a bit more epic than actual game play ; )

    Still, I did have some incredible times.

    Wait are they still working on an official Lineage 3? I thought Eternal was what L3 became.

    Interesting if they are.

    No that's just internet rumor and from what I can see it only exists because someone said it and then other repeated it.

    A wikipedia article indicates that lineage eternal is a sequel to the original lineage. Given the fixed camera that makes some sense.

    L3 was killed due to the TERA debacle back in the days (2007). I think Goddess of Destruction (Decemver 2011 expansion) is as close as L3 you'll ever see....

    Lin][age Videos always have been outstanding for their time, be it CGI or in-game.

    Despite the husk that is the game this video blows me away.

    So much detail and effort put it and i like the mix of using game graphic assets for video making rather than an overblown full CGI trailer.

     

    Don't get me wrong i like my CGI dose, like the SWTOR or WARCRAFT intros, but seeing something in "game" graphic with so much detailed animation and interaction is kinda exactly what feels more "right" than a 5 minute cgi which bears zero respeblance with actual game graphics.

    Lineage II is NOT MADE for any kind of pre-fixed combat system. The whole game is build around clan(guild) PvP and territory control. No factions but the ones the players make. The idea of racial combat won't happen since some races lack certain classes below 85 (dwarfs having no healers/mages), while other races have all available (humans having more than one of each class).

    Not sure about the server warfare have to see what that is all about, and btw. The sieges might not look like it.. but it sure fells like it.

    Lineage 2 sieges will always be epic fun :D

    Nice video. Although its not CGI its still a miss interpritation of the actual gameplay.

    Lineage 3 development has been pretty much stopped. Give it up already Its quite obvious why it was scrapped too. most of whatever they planned was just repurposed and added as Goddess of Destruction. 

    LE is pretty much new L3.

     

    And yes its a sequel to Lineage 1 since, surprise surprise, Lineage 1 storyline comes AFTER Lineage 2 and unless they do another prequel, next game in the series HAS to be after L1.

    we "ok" not sure what I'm giving up as I just stated info. Which was in an article.

    If you would like to share where they have stopped working on L3 "forever" then please post it and stop adding to the rumor mill without any basis for that rumor.

    I read there might be layoffs (which for the record is rumor) and that very much might make them halt working on L3 but in reality, at some point in the future, the game will be worked on again.

    The company hasn't just stopped existing after all, they aren't going to make all their money on their old games in perpetuity.
