Lineage is opening its first subscription server in China

    
6

The name Lineage has gone hand-in-hand with free-to-play for a while now, but that might be changing. Chinese publisher Tencent Games is experimenting with a new subscription server in the region. The server, which goes online on March 26th, will require players to buy a “growth fruit” from the store to unlock 30 days of game access.

With a premium cost comes premium benefits, and one such bonus for subscribing is that players will be able to use a new Android app to perform basic gaming tasks such as grinding mobs for rewards. However, once a player goes down this route, her or she will not be able to move that character to a free-to-play server.

Karl_Hungus Dystopiq It doesn’t actually. In 2013 it made 253 million. But NCSoft still had the # 2, 7,8,9 money making titles in the mmo market. They’re just not super popular in the west.

So once they eat the apple of subscription they can never go back to the bliss of free to play ignorance ?
