NCSoft's Lineage wins MacWorld Best of Show Award(January 14, 2002)
NCsoft recently launched the North American version of Lineage for PC and is building on more than four million subscribers and 330,000 concurrent users worldwide. Mac users and PC users will soon be able to play alongside each other. The game raises the concepts of community, player interaction, and combat to new levels with the introduction of Blood Pledges-strong alliances with friends and allies in the game world. Once a Pledge is formed, the players can develop a strategy for overtaking a castle.
Lineage players can choose from four different character archetypes-a heroic knight, clever wizard, nimble elf, or royal prince/princess. Creating a character is quick and easy. New players can immediately jump into the game and learn the ropes in a Lineage new player area where they may quickly level up and learn the basics in preparation for the adventures and perils that lie ahead. And unlike other subscription-based games, Lineage offers FREE updates that expand the game world to exotic new lands filled with fierce creatures.
