Complete with free game time.

NCsoft has decided to box its biggest Lineage II expansion and sell it in shops from 1st February, priced at GBP 14.99.

Kamael is the content being packed up, alongside a meaty 45 days of free game time to lure you in. After that, however, you'll have to pay a monthly subscription fee of GBP 8.99.

The expansion introduces a new race with sultry vampire looks and a single wing. At least until you reach their final form and unleash your dual-winged demon.

New stuff and story in April.

Lineage II has only gone and expanded again, this time introducing The Chaotic Throne - Interlude, the beginning of a whole new storyline for players to experience sometime in April.

The current chapter, The Chaotic Chronicles, will be dramatically knitted-off - presumably resulting in some tremendous climax that will spread emotional turmoil throughout the land. So, to cheer you up, this free update has fantasy bucket-loads of new goodies to wallow in.

There's the new zone, the Primeval Isle. Dinosaurs be 'ere, and only top-level sunlight-shunning players will survive attacks from these historical beasts.

Chronicle 5 confirmed.

NCsoft has announced that a new expansion is on the way for PC MMO Lineage II - and that it won't cost you a penny.

Titled Chronicle 5: Oath of Blood, the expansion is set to offer plenty of new items, creatures, quests, mini-games and gameplay enhancements. New areas to explore will include the castles of Rune and Schuttgart, and you can expect to face off with new enemies such as Frintezza - "an immortal being of immense power" who should cause even the most experienced player a good bit of grief.

If you're new to Lineage II, or prefer to go it alone, you're also in for a treat; there are new items and gameplay changes designed to make the game more enjoyable for low-level characters and solo hunters. To keep veterans interested, the level cap has been increased to 80.

World to grow by a third.

NCsoft has launched a new expansion for Lineage II which increases the size of the in-game world by a whole 33 per cent, or one third in the old money.

Chronicle 4: Scions of Destiny, which offers 800MB of brand new content, is billed as one of the largest MMO updates ever. New features include high-level hunting areas Rune and Godard, plus a new castle in Godard which players can try to seize. There's also an invincible - well, nearly invincible - fire dragon called Valakas, and you can now go fishing.

High level players are in for a few treats - there's now a third class transfer option for players who reach level 76, so you can get more powerful skills. The new "hero and noblesse system" lets level 75s compete in the Grand Olympian, a PvP challenge, and the winner will be crowned "hero" before being awarded spanky new weapons and "a special heroic aura."
