Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.

NCsoft Corporation, the world's largest independent online game company, announced the upcoming release of Lineage for the Mac at MWSF. The timing is perfect as NCsoft recently launched the North American version of this massively popular subscription-based online game and is building on more than four million subscribers and 330,000 concurrent users worldwide. The Mac version is planned to launch next month.

Mac users and PC users will be able to play alongside each other in Lineage. The game raises the concepts of community, player interaction, and combat to new levels with the introduction of Blood Pledges-strong alliances with friends and allies in the game world. Once a Pledge is formed, the players can develop a strategy for overtaking a castle. Also, Lineage players can choose from four different character archetypes-a heroic knight, clever wizard, nimble elf, or royal prince/princess.

Lineage - the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) available for Macintosh will feature:

  • Millions of avid gamers around the globe
  • More than 300,000 simultaneous users
  • Hundreds of monsters - from great dragons to tiny, pesky gremlins
  • Regular FREE updates expand the game world to exotic new lands filled with fierce creatures
  • Travel through deserts, dark forests, and beneath the deepest oceans in search of fame and fortune
  • Lineage was one of only two games chosen for the Macworld Best of Show award. To honor the game and it's award, I've dedicated this week's desktop to the upcoming MMORPG. The selection was created with several images obtained from the press section for Lineage and is titled, "The Blood Pledge" after the game itself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

    This week I will start back into my personal site, Custer's Corner. You can still check out the layout at Custer's Corner Layout.

    Until then...
