Lineage II Interview
8:14 AM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story

IGN's RPG Vault has posted an interview by Richard Aihoshi, also known as Jonric, with NCsoft's lead game designer Hyung Jin Kim and producer James Bae in which they discuss Lineage II, the second part of NCsoft's massively multiplayer online strategy and role-playing game (which is actually a prequel to Lineage: The Blood Pledge).

Here's a clip from the interview:

Q: What kind of overall gameplay experience are you planning to provide, and in what ways if any will it differ from the original game?

A: Like Lineage, the core content of Lineage II will be to get powerful players to organize blood pledges to make war with each other. In order to take over a certain area, pledges will surround the castle and fight members of another pledge. However, Lineage II as a 3D game will have a totally different mode of gameplay than the current style of Lineage.

There is no word of a Mac version of the game at this time, but you can check out the current release of Lineage, available for download at
