IMG Previews Lineage: The Blood Pledge
12:18 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Today IMG has posted a preview of Lineage: The Blood Pledge, the upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game from NCsoft. As announced at the recent Macworld Expo, Lineage will start a closed Mac OS X beta test later this week (signups at IMG start tomorrow), followed by a full release in a month or so. The preview goes into detail on what you can look for in Lineage, though interested gamers will be able to try out Lineage free for a month as well.

Here is an excerpt from our preview by Andy Largent:

Lineage is a fairly standard RPG in many aspects. With a direct anime influence from a set of comic books by Ilsook Shin, the game borrows heavily from the Tolkien-ized sphere of medieval fantasy. There are four character classes, each with a male and female counterpart: Knights, Elves, Princes/Princesses, and Wizards. Your character has the similar statistics and attributes with which RPG players are familiar. The isometric 2D view is very analogous to Diablo or Baldur's Gate, and the combat is a straightforward click-to-attack. Monsters drop gold and items, which you can then use to buy better weapons, armor, and spells.
Use the link below to read through the rest of our preview, and look for beta signups to start tomorrow at noon PST.
