'Lineage 2' Expansion 'Infinite Odyssey' Celebrates 11 Years By Removing Level Cap [VIDEO]
To infinity and beyond. Infinite Odyssey, the latest update to NCSOFT's hugely popular MMO, Lineage II, is now live for all players.
The expansion continues the tale of Leona Blackbird, whom you must join up with and aid in defeating Embryo, Leona's adversaries who have captured her elite Blackbird army. Guide her along as you undertake a rescue/revenge mission into the heart of the Embryo stronghold.
Infinite Odyssey marks the 11th anniversary of Lineage II's debut, making it one of the longest running still active MMOs in existence. The developers at NCSOFT want players to explore the game's new content - in case you haven't explored 11 years of history already - and have therefore removed the level cap, allowing players to "once again be able to experience the rush of leveling and learning new and powerful skills." Rise as high as you wish.
Two new zones have been added: Garden of Spirits and Atelia Fortress, as well as a wealth of new skills for players of any class.
But more than just new content, Lineage II is also delivering some new loot as well. The following events have been added to the game for a limited time, in celebration.
"A new store update, which includes items not only for the expansion, but also a series of Anniversary items. Long-time players will be able to claim a free Veteran Reward pack. And a series of 1NCoin sales will be run each week for the next five weeks to help players celebrate the Anniversary."
Additionally, for one month, players can enjoy special server settings, which will provide free teleports, no XP loss on death, and a 50% XP/SP boost.
