Help Beta Test Lineage for Mac
8:16 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

At Macworld Expo San Francisco, NCSoft announced that it would be bringing its popular online-only RPG, Lineage: The Blood Pledge, to the Mac.

Now IMG readers can help beta test Lineage for Mac OS X. On Thursday, January 31, 2002 at 12:00 PM PST, we'll be posting a special URL where you can go and sign up for the beta test. The sign up page will be open until Sunday, February 3.

How many people will be selected for the beta test? Chris Sherman of NCSoft told IMG, "We will be selecting only a limited number of people for the beta but everyone who signs up will receive a Lineage Mac CD by mail when it's available."

If you haven't heard of Lineage, here's some more information on the game:

Lineage players can choose from four different character archetypes — a heroic knight, clever wizard, nimble elf, or royal prince or princess.

Creating a character is quick and easy. New players can immediately jump into the game and learn the ropes in a Lineage new player area where they may quickly level up and learn the basics in preparation for the adventures and perils that lie ahead. And unlike other subscription-based games, Lineage offers FREE updates that expand the game world to exotic new lands filled with fierce creatures.

Lineage comes with a 30-day free trial. After the trial period, players are charged US$15 per month. Players can save money by purchasing four months at a rate of US$11.25 per month. An Internet connection is required to play Lineage.

Be sure to check back on Thursday for details of the beta test. Also be on the lookout for IMG's very own preview of Lineage soon.
