Hellbound increases the game’s level capacity to 85, and adds significant quests and skills. Players finally get the chance to best the diabolical boss Beleth, fighting their way through multiple towers in the Steel Citadel. Enhancements to the pet system enable players to grow their wolf pet into a mount called a Fenrir. Additionally, this update adds more transformation options, where players earn the ability to temporarily transform into a powerful alter-ego with special skills that will aid them in their ventures into Hellbound.
The Hellbound expansion is free to current Lineage II subscribers; however, there are many added bonuses for those who purchase the 4th Anniversary Edition, available this week in stores. Customers who purchase this game pack receive the game client, all Lineage II expansions including Hellbound, plus an unprecedented sixty days of game time. Customers also receive two exclusive in-game items, and Lineage II fans that have had accounts for a year or more can take advantage of special discounts on account services, including gender, character name and server changes.
The Lineage II Limited Collector’s Edition provides players with a whole host of exclusive extras. Featuring the most up to date game client, the Limited Edition includes three exclusive in-game items, discount tokens for server features, a stunning 148 page ‘The Art of Lineage II’ art book, the official soundtrack CD, two exclusive A2 posters and the official Lineage II world map. To complete the pack, each set also includes a highly detailed poly-resin Kamael character figurine.
“The content in our Hellbound expansion really rounds out what we started in Kamael,” said Tim Tan, NCsoft’s North American producer of Lineage II. “The expansion was very popular with our players and we’re happy to follow up with more content so soon after its launch. Players can now really sink their teeth into the Hellbound area of the game, and the raised level cap gives them a fighting chance against Beleth! The 4th Anniversary Edition box we’re releasing today adds value for our current players, but we also encourage our former players to check out the unique account service loyalty benefits and start playing again.”
The Lineage II 4th Anniversary Edition retail pack is available starting this week for an estimated street price of US $39.99.
