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.[Source: MMO Culture]
