NCSoft's Lineage wins MacWorld Best of Show Award

(January 14, 2002)
NCsoft Corporation, the world's largest independent online game company, today announced that Lineage for the Mac OS has received a MacWorld Best of Show Award. MacWorld Magazine earlier today announced the 14 winners of the awards, which are given annually to the most exciting hardware and software products at the Macworld Conference and Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. One of only two games chosen for the award, the Mac version of the world's most popular subscription-based online game will be available for play in February.

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.
