Lineage II: ‘Classic hardcore is back’

    
12

Lineage II formally launched on Steam this week, complete with a fresh-start server, Zaken. There are even server firsts rewards, mostly pirate-themed goodies, for those who zip their way through content on Zaken, both in PvE and PvP.

More intriguingly, at least if you play Lineage II in Europe, is the fact that the game’s EU handlers are finally launching the classic Lineage II server players voted for last spring, lining themselves up to compete with some of the illegal emulators floating around the internet. “Lineage 2 Classic” will cost 10 euros a month — yes, it’s a subscription-funded service — and feature a hardcore ruleset. “Intense and hardcore levelling in Lineage 2 Classic will make every level a real achievement,” declares the website. “Incomparable fun for all the fans of classic hardcore!”

Pre-orders are open now; we’ve included info on the two pre-order packs below.

I’d love to play L2 again, but I can’t go back to the terrible combat and clunky ass glued to the ground movement style.

What…they mentioned all that without saying “cupcake” once? o.O

Veldan All Steam does is install the NCsoft launcher.  So if you want to play on the new NA server, just download launcher and you should be able to play.  Its only blocked through Steam.

DemonicPossession Lineage 2 is the more “normal” MMO of the two.

I guess after 10 years the game has aquired a lot of people that don’t like it anymore and all of them seemed to feel obligated to dl and play the 5 minutes nessisary to give it a bad review on steam.
