Lineage II goes 'Truly Free' November 30 with update

Lineage II goes 'Truly Free' November 30 with update photo



Earlier in the month it was reported that Lineage II was going to go "Truly Free" later in the year along with a new content update. The date has now officially been set as November 30th for the launch of Goddess of Destruction and its new business model. For the uninitiated, NCsoft is calling it "Truly Free" because there are no membership levels; everyone can access all of the content.

Along with the update comes the "Path to Awakening," an online item shop and leveling guide. This official website will have interactive maps showing players the recommended areas to level up in as well as give bonus support items like time-limited equipment. Personally, I wish more MMOs had something just like this since it sounds like a great tool for new and experienced players alike.

You can also choose to accelerate your leveling by buying various "Exploration Packs" from the L2 Galleria with real money. These packs provide you with gear enhancements that will help you level up faster than a normal player. You'll be able to pre-purchase these packs starting November 23rd. Feel free to explore the Truly Free model and Goddess of Destruction update here.
