Innova announces German version of Lineage II

The first localised version of the popular MMORPG will launch in spring

LUXEMBOURG CITY – February 17th, 2012 – Two months after the launch of the European free-to-play service in English, Innova today confirmed German as the first localised version of Lineage II. The German service for the competitive massively multiplayer online role-playing game Lineage II is expected to go live this spring.

Lineage II is being localised for different European territories in several stages, with special care and attention given to each language, including native-language player support and community management. Before the official launch of the German version, Innova will invite players to take part in the beta testing process and provide valuable feedback. The first phase, the closed beta test, is currently planned for March.

“We are really proud to announce the very first German version of this popular MMORPG, that offers such an amazing, vast world and gaming experience for both PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player) fans,” said Jens Schönherr, Head of German Community Management for Lineage II.

Lineage II has recently experienced major changes with its transition to the free-to-play model and the Goddess of Destruction expansion, and soon Innova will offer the first fully localised service for German-speaking players. Besides, the company will localise the game into further languages throughout 2012. More details will be announced in the coming months.
