Later this year, you can play Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction for free! Experience the large-scale castle sieges, clan wars, and head-to-head Olympiad competition that made Lineage II famous.
“Truly free” means no separate account types or blocked game content. Other than the in-game store items, all game content (character creation, races, classes, skills, zones, bosses, quests, clans, crafting, warehouse, auction house, chat, mail, forums, customer support, and so on) is free. And the Goddess of Destruction update offers roughly four times faster game progression and over 400 hours of gameplay.
The L2 Store will offer items to supplement your gameplay in the form of XP/SP boosts, potions, buffs, and other consumable supplies, as well as cosmetic items and hunting helpers. In addition, you can purchase premium packs that accelerate character leveling for a longer period and contain exclusive items not available for individual purchase. But you never have to purchase anything from the L2 Store in order to enjoy the game mechanics or story content of Lineage II. “Truly free” means exactly that: Buy only what you want, or play all the way to level 99 without purchasing anything.
