Lineage II Celebrates Five-Year
Anniversary with Largest Content Expansion to Date

NCsoft commemorates five years of
Lineage II service in the West with the launch of Gracia Final, the latest free
expansion to the legendary Lineage II franchise. Gracia Final, the third part of
the Gracia expansion series, brings Lineage II fans a whole new continent and
refined player-versus-player (PvP) combat. Other highlights of the Gracia Final
expansion include more clan features, territory wars, new items, and new skill

Players can log into Lineage II
right now and experience the chaotic lands of Gracia, an entire new continent
ready for exploration. To venture into Gracia, characters fly on airships
available at the Gludio airship wharf. Characters who would rather reach the
continent using their own devices can use the new aerial transformation skills
Aurabird Falcon, Aurabird Owl, and the Kamael’s special Final Flying Form. While
on the continent of Gracia, explorers can journey through war-torn lands filled
with mysterious creatures and adventure in nearly 60 new quests.

The Gracia Final expansion also
brings in Territory Battles, where any player, even those not belonging to a
clan, can participate in epic-scale conflict and reap rewards from the local
Territory Manager. Territory Battles provide a “capture the flag”-style PvP
experience that rewards dominating clans with castle-related skills and
additional revenue. In addition, the Gracia Final expansion introduces
three-versus-three PvP arena battles at the Olympiad for the first time, and
enables clans to earn additional abilities and membership.

“We are thrilled to celebrate five
years of Lineage II live service with such a large content expansion,” said Sam
Han, North American producer for NCsoft West. “This represents the largest
content expansion for Lineage II to date, and we plan to keep them coming. We
appreciate our loyal players, who have provided us with memorable experiences
over the past five years. I encourage gamers ready for a change to join us in
the new, accessible, rich world of Lineage II.”

In addition to the expansive new
content Gracia Final provides, Lineage II players can celebrate the fifth
anniversary with an in-game event that runs now through May 5th. During this
event, creatures in the lands of Aden and Gracia drop special items engraved
with certain letters and numbers. Players get rewards for acquiring the letters
to spell “Gracia,” “Lineage II,” and “5 Years.” More details can be found at

Lineage II is known as the gaming
market’s premier PvP online roleplaying game, with a customer reach of more than
19 million worldwide. The game is rated T for Teen by the Entertainment Software
Rating Board.
