NCsoft has rebooted Lineage Eternal as Project TL in Unreal 4

Remember Lineage Eternal? It seems as if we’ve been watching the gorgeous MMOARPG sequel to the Lineage franchise for half of forever, as NCsoft has moved it into and out of testing over the last several years, finally admitting last summer that it was gutting the game and starting over with Unreal 4 following the replacement of the team lead. Maybe the more upsetting news at the time was the rumor that it was switching from MMOARPG to just another mobile title.

And now we know just a little bit more: Lineage Eternal is now being called Project TL (“The Lineage”) and is indeed a do-over using the U4 engine, although as MMO Culture points out, plenty of other assets and the entire character system has been replaced with a more MMORPG-like customization mechanic, which is great news! It doesn’t sound like a mobile MMO as rumored, as NCsoft is hinting at consoles. Closed beta is expected next year. The trailer is down below!

LOL. And it may continue. It’s a great project or so I hear. Just read TL and then shut it down, right there.

Would have rather had a traditional MMORPG something more akin to a classic Lineage 3

Well, I’m glad to see NCSoft jerking around its fans *before* a title launches for once, instead of mercilessly shuttering a game post-release, once the community has formed in-game!

Feels like they wanted to add some touch of Black Desert to the game, in search for a MMO – OARPG hybrid’s sweetspot!

If it’s true, not a bad idea!
