The MOP Up: Aion, Lineage 2, and Blade and Soul get ready for a new launcher

Oddly beautiful.

Blade and Soul, Lineage II, and Aion are all preparing to migrate everyone from the old launcher to the new PLAYNC platform. NCsoft posted a guide to help anyone who panics at what sounds like a very simple transition.

“Part of this change includes an update to our NC Launcher 2 which will be upgraded to PURPLE, a modern launcher with new features. This guide is to act as a preview to prepare you for when PURPLE launches.”
