As mentioned before, NCSOFT wants to bring a whole world concept to Lineage, hence the W in the name: world. According to the developer’s CCO, “Lineage W is a project that seeks to become the final Lineage”.
This concept is explored not only in the game’s promotion, but also in its mechanics. Lineage W opted for 3D graphics with this view from the top to offer the same experience across all platforms it will be released, with plans for cross-play between PC and consoles.
The game has not yet set a date or window for its release, but pre-registration is open for mobile devices. Interested players can go to the official website to register for the game on Android or iOS and secure some extra items and bonuses when the game is released.
