The next year will bring stuff for Lineage II. That’s the takeaway from the new producer’s letter for the game looking forward to everything on the docket as the team plans for the 15th anniversary of the game. Of course, it’s less vague than just “some stuff,” starting with the reveal that the first castle siege in the game’s classic version starts at the end of January. Players can look forward to the Saviors update to the Classic version in late February, bringing with it the Third-Class transfer quest, new hunting zones, and the rune system.
None of that means the non-classic version will languish, though; the title will be bringing out a new dragon world boss (the first in six years) and a new equipment grade in the update currently scheduled for a spring release. The team is also doing its best to hunt down and ban bots, which is good new for players who have been forced to contend with the more unscrupulous elements of player culture that is botting. In short? Stuff through 2019. This is probably a relief for anyone feeling a bit touchy after recent NCsoft layoffs.
