On October 3rd, players with a nostalgic bent can log in and "return to those days when "hardcore" truly meant something". NCSoft has been hinting around about Classic servers and today they make good on the promise. Lineage II Classic will be free to play "but with an entirely new shop" with "consumables that provide experience gain buffs, cosmetics and more".
- Nostalgic MMO Action: Intense and hardcore leveling return – every level players gain is a significant achievement. No instanced dungeons and open-world PVP means players must always be ready to put their skills to the test, as in-game deaths lead to a loss of experience.
- Massive PVP Siege Battles: Achieve true glory on the field of battle by sieging enemy castles or hunting massive open-world bosses for the ultimate loot rewards, but be wary of other clans on the hunt for the same treasures.
- Classic Economy: A penny saved is a penny earned, and with a fresh server, the driving force behind the economy will be the players’ determination and business talent to hunt for and market crafting resources.
