200-Player PvP Arrives to Lineage 2: Revolution

Taking down a castle is a big operation. You need lots of manpower and siege weapons and people who aren’t afraid to be attacked by folks who don’t want their castle taken over. Luckily, the majority of the logistics and all of the personal injury are taken care of in Lineage 2: Revolution Castle Siege mode, which is arriving to the mobile MMORPG today.

In Castle Siege, up to four clans – one defending and three attacking – do battle in a 200-player PvP assault to imprint the opponent’s Holy Artifact. Castle Siege pre-season is officially underway today, which will also mark the beginning of the Castle Siege Festival that grants increased XP rewards.

In addition to the new large-scale PvP mode, the newest update to Lineage 2: Revolution adds the new Oren Territory, new difficulty levels for several dungeons, new Grade UR equipment, a max level extension from level 180 to 260, and some new servers. There are also a number of in-game events happening as well.

You can check out some in-game footage of a Castle Siege in action in the video embedded below.

Our Thoughts

Castle Siege looks like probably one of the most bonkers PvP modes in MMO gaming overall, let alone mobile MMO gaming. We’re hoping that clans that take part in this content enjoy the fights and that everyone has a great time in this latest update.

Temporal Rifts Open in Lineage 2: Revolution Update

If something is angry, powerful, or a combination of both enough to tear rifts into space-time, then it probably is a threat that needs to be dealt with. Lineage 2: Revolution Temporal Rifts are just such a threat that players of the mobile MMORPG will get to contend with in the latest update.

Temporal Rifts are opening and available for parties of two to five players. These Rifts lead to one of two locations – the Altar of Madness or the Countess of Blood’s Boudoir – where players will need to coordinate their efforts to succeed. Those who are successful will receive items such as Cloak Strengthening material and Monster Cores, along with a chance at several other items.

The new update will also be providing a new Clan Dungeon in the form of the Cruma Core Room. This new instance is described as the hardest Clan Dungeon added to the game yet and recommends participants have at least Magical Monster-specialized gear in order to survive.

In addition, this new update brings a PvE-specific Red Rare Equipment tier, a new cloak item, and will offer special in-game events which should all be found on the relevant game forum.

Our Thoughts

Little bit of everything for everyone sprinkled around in this update. We hope that players of all stripes have something to look forward to with this new update and hope that the RNG Gods are kind when completing those Temporal Rifts.

Lineage 2: Revolution Begins First Season of PvP Sieges

The content update in December that brought massive Lineage 2: Revolution PvP sieges to the game was, apparently, just a warm-up. The latest update to the mobile MMORPG marks the official start of the mode’s first season along with several other updates across the board.

50v50 Fortress Siege and 30v30 Open Siege is now underway for Season 1, bringing with it some new rewards and regions for people who take part.

Fortress Siege, which runs every Friday at 8:30pm PST, has added four new regions each in Gludio and Dion, offering more fortresses for players to do battle over. Open Siege, meanwhile, will be offering a unique Steam Beetle pet for players and will run at 8:30pm PST every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

As for the rest of Lineage 2: Revolution, the latest update is bringing players of all stripes a little something as well. Level cap has been raised to 180, along with additional main quests, dailies and Scroll Quests for players to undertake. The region of the Giran Dominion has also been added, along with several field expansions to existing zones and new Elite Dungeons.

There are also some in-game events running from now until February 7th, including login rewards for players and a Region Dice Event where players earn dice points after completing quests and dungeons that can be used to roll for unique rewards.

Our Thoughts

We actually didn’t know that sieges in Lineage 2: Revolution were going to be season-based, but we expect this will be a good carrot for PvP fans to chase overall. Of course, it’s good that this new update has added a little something to everyone as well, but clearly the large-scale PvP is the party piece of this update. Good luck to players who take part!

Lineage 2: Revolution Reaches 5 Million Users in Two Months

Only 2 months after launching Netmarble is proudly boasting that Lineage 2: Revolution reaches 5 million users around the world. It launched in 54 countries which means if each country had an equal number of registered users it’d be about 92,500 players per country! This is a massive success for the mobile MMORPG and one to be proud of! To celebrate the momentous occasion Lineage 2: Revolution is giving away 5 Enhance Scrolls to every player.

Talking about the recent milestone Netmarble’s Chief Global Officer Seungwun Lee had this to say, “We wanted to celebrate and give thanks to the 5 million registered players with great in-game events. We hope our players will continue to enjoy and grow in Lineage 2: Revolution. Here’s to a great 2018!”

Right now Lineage: 2 Revolution has several in-game events they’re running. One is a daily login reward, the others have to do with equipment and leveling up. All three of these events end on January 17th, so if you start logging in now you get a full week of rewards.

The game claims to have the largest large-scale multiplayer gameplay ever for mobile devices. It offers 50 v. 50 fortress sieges as well as 30 v. 30 open sieges. They’ve also recently expanded the Tower of Insolence by 10 floors, bringing it up to a total of 70 floors players can climb through.

Lineage 2: Revolution is already showing us that 2018 will be an incredible year for mobile gaming, something we predicted would happen in our 2018 predictions for online gaming. If you’re interested in seeing what else our writers are predicting for the year head over there and take a look.

Large-Scale PvP Battles Arrive to Lineage 2: Revolution

There’s plenty of assumptions one can make of mobile MMOs and one of those can certainly be the lack of “massive” activities in them. In the first Lineage 2: Revolution update since the game released to the West, huge PvP fights are now available. As in 50v50 and 30v30 huge.

lineage 2: revolution update

The first major PvP feature is Fortress Siege, a real-time 50v50 battle that runs every Friday at 8:30pm PST. Clans interested in participating in Fortress Siege must bid on a desired fortress starting at midnight every Thursday. Then, the attacking and defending Clans will battle to be the first to “imprint” onto their opponents’ Holy Artifact and be declared the winner.

For those who are still making their way up the ranks or just want something smaller scale, there’s Open Siege. These 30v30 battles are available for level 11 players every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Players will be brought up to the same combat power and level but can pick any class and race before the match. The win condition is the same as Fortress Siege: the first to “imprint” on the opponent’s fortress wins.

Players can get their hands on the new PvP goodness starting today. You can also get a look at the large battles in action in the trailer below.

Our Thoughts

The scale of these PvP encounters in a mobile MMORPG is nothing to shrug at. While we certainly can have our concerns about how smoothly this all runs on a mobile device, we’re also incredibly eager to see it in action for ourselves.
