Numerous fans of Lineage are eagerly awaiting when the South Korean company NCSoft will release the next game of the series. Unfortunately, it will not happen soon – developers reported that the project changed its name to Project TL (Project The Lineage), which is very likely temporary.
The thing is that the closed beta test of Lineage Eternal: Twilight Resistance, which took place at the end of 2016, turned out to be unsuccessful. As a result, the MMORPG received mostly negative feedback and went to processing instead of open testing. Now the project is created on the basis of the graphics engine Unreal Engine 4, which should update its visual component. Changes will come not only in the picture, but in other aspects of the game. So, Project TL will become more dynamic and will be based not on heroes, but on character classes: first there will be five of them. Also, we are promised a deep immersion in the game world, realistic physics, a weather system and a destructible environment.
What exactly will be the updated Lineage Eternal, you can learn from the following trailer. The date of the project’s release has not yet been announced.
Officially the development of Lineage Eternal: Twilight Resistance started 9 years ago, and the announcement took place only in 2011. It is the continuation of the first part of the series, and because of the isometric view from above and the dungeon system reminds Diablo rather than the usual Russian gamers Lineage II. Before last year’s beta test, the authors promised to implement in MMORPG separate scenarios for heroes, a system of random generation of dungeons, a mass of destructible and interactive objects and large-scale clan PvP-battles.
