Lineage II: Hellbound Released

NCsoft announces the release of the Hellbound content expansion for Lineage II in conjunction with the imminent release of a Limited Collector’s Edition of the MMORPG sequel:

Thursday 24th April... Brighton, England/... NCsoft® Europe (http://eu.plaync.com/eu/) today announced the release of Hellbound™, the newest addition to the Lineage® II (http://www.discoverlineage2.com) franchise, in conjunction with its Limited Collector’s Edition retail package. Continuing the storyline and content in December’s popular expansion Kamael, Hellbound increases the game’s level capacity to 85, and adds significant quests and skills. Players finally get the chance to best the diabolical boss Beleth, fighting their way through multiple towers in the Steel Citadel. Enhancements to the pet system enable players to grow their wolf pet into a mount called a Fenrir. Additionally, this update adds more transformation options, where players earn the ability to temporarily transform into a powerful alter-ego with special skills that will aid them in their ventures into Hellbound.

The Lineage II Limited Collector’s Edition provides players with a whole host of exclusive extras. Featuring the most up to date game client, the Limited Edition includes three exclusive in-game items, discount tokens for server features, a stunning 148 page ‘The Art of Lineage II’ art book, the official soundtrack CD, two exclusive A2 posters and the official Lineage II world map. To complete the pack, each set also includes a highly detailed poly-resin Kamael character figurine.

Lineage II is known as the gaming market’s premier player-versus-player (PvP) online role-playing game, with a customer reach of more than 19 million players worldwide.

“The content in our Hellbound expansion really rounds out what we started in Kamael,” said Tim Tan, NCsoft’s North American producer of Lineage II. “The expansion was very popular with our players and we’re happy to follow up with more content, so soon after its launch. Players can really sink their teeth into the Hellbound area of the game, and the raised level cap gives them a fighting chance against Beleth!”

The Lineage II Limited Collector’s Edition will be available from major retailers at a recommended retail price of £54.99 / €79.99. The standard edition box of Lineage II is available at a recommended retail price of £14.99 / €19.99 and at the PlayNC® store (http://eu.plaync.com/eu/store/). Monthly subscription fee to the game is £8.99 / €12.99. The game is rated 12+ by PEGI (http://www.pegi.info).

This the expansion where they were supposed to fix the controls to be something other than utter shit?

Oh, wait, this is NCSoft we're talking about...

I bought this back in decemeber - got around to installing it in January and was really surprised when I got a mail telling me my account had expired a month later.

Totally forgot I had the thing installed - I think I logged in twice.

Still I'm sure some people love it.

it is

friend who still plays on and off tells me that most farmers have left his server and now crafting materials have become stupidly rare and expensive (even more than they were before, w/e, I played it for like 2 months in 2004 and never looked back)
