MMORPG Lineage II is celebrating its 13th anniversary this year, with the video below appearing on the Korean PlayNC Channel earlier.
The second game in the Lineage series acts as a prequel to the original Lineage, set 150 years before the original. Since its initial release back in 2003, the game has amassed a huge following of fans since its launch in South Korea. During the month of March in 2007, the game had attracted over a million unique users, which has risen to over 14 million users to date.
The video could have been posted not only as a celebration, but to build anticipation for whats to come for the series. A follow up to Lineage is scheduled to release a Beta test this year. Entitled Lineage Eternal, the upcoming MMORPG is a sequel to the original game, originally announced back in 2011.
The first gameplay videos for Lineage Eternal were released the same year, with a Beta planned for the end of 2013. A further two years later, it was announced by the developers that they planned to initiate the beta testing before the year was out, but it was delayed until November 2016. The closed Beta in South Korea for Lineage Eternal is now planned to begin on November 30th, 2016 culminating almost a week later on December 4th, 2016.
