  • Interlude debuts Lineage II Chaotic Throne chapter; Introduces dinosaurs and new dueling system

    NCSoft issued a press release today to annouce the new era in Lineage II.

    The Interlude expansion offers a variety of new challenges to players, including the new Primeval Isle, which is home to many new creatures making their first appearance in Lineage II.

Mastering the beasts on Primeval Isle will require strategy and teamwork from players and clan members.

    More details are in the full press release.
