Probably all of you heard the title 'Lineage 2'. Well, Lineage 2 is without doubt one of the most successful MMO on the market, it still have quite huge fanbase - or it had before Private Servers take most of the players...
Lineage 2 has been released in Korea 2003 and US 2004, from the start it was pay-to-play (P2P).
According to an announcement from the company, the game will be adopting a hybrid business model in the near future to allow players to enjoy the game for "free", in a similar vein to the recent City of Heroes conversion.
Well, specific details regarding the new model has not yet be announced, but players will most likely be able to enjoy the game's several years of content.
During the G-Star 2010, NCsoft announced new upcoming expansion (this year) for Lineage 2 called 'Goddess of Destruction' - so it seems like good news from anyone looking for a new title to try out in the near future.
Have a look at the City of Heroes model - difference between Free Players, Premium Players and VIP Players.
So similiar model should appear in Lineage 2 - what you think about that?
Do you believe it still be the same old good Lineage 2?
Do you think Players will come back from Private Servers to Official Servers?
Will you still / start playing it after the changes?
I Hope You Enjoyed It!
and, As Always Have a Nice Day :)
