Lineage 2 Aden, the recently announced solo-enhanced version of Lineage 2, is now live in the Americas.

In case you missed it, Lineage 2 Aden features new and updated classes, introduces options for solo play along with new PvP and PvE content, and includes innovative support systems that streamline leveling, with the intent of preserving the core Lineage 2 experience.

We actually covered the reveal when it was first announced late last month. If you missed our coverage, you can catch up here. One of the ways the team is emphasizing solo play is reducing the complexity of combat and significantly increasing the leveling speed.

Additionally, two new classes are introduced including the Dark Knight and Storm Blaster. The Death Knight is a DPS class using melee and magic attacks to damage and weaken enemies. The Storm Blaster is a hybrid DPS/Support class using ranged and melee.

With the release of Lineage 2 Aden, an attendance event is underway through September 15. You’ll be able to log in daily and claim special rewards, including consumables, and some items normally found on the premium L2 Store.

There’s also a raid master event through September 1. This event will spawn two special enemies every hour 10 minutes after the hour. If you defeat all the enemies within the time limit, they’ll drop Raid Master Chests. These chests contain special rewards that would normally be found in the L2 Store, and also have a chance of dropping 1000 or 8000 premium L2 Coin Boxes.
