Features and graphics
As a mobile version of Lineage 2, Lineage2M features all the content you would expect, from several races to 31 classes, the vast open world of Aden, and more quests and PvP than anyone can probably handle.
The main features of Lineage2M, including enhanced graphics, are outlined below as per the game's Google PlayStore page.
Graphics and effects:
"Lineage2M boasts full 3D in 4K UHD, the highest definition available on mobile devices. With thoroughly drawn armour patterns and detailed character expressions, Lineage 2M achieved the highest degree of graphics quality. This is the first mobile game that allows more than ten thousand players to gather in one location and fight in one epic battle."
Battle for Supremacy
"Play with a rich variety of races and over 31 classes without losing level progress! Humans, Elves, Dark Elves, Dwarves, and Orcs fight for loot and power across two continents. Lineage2M's classes include the highly adaptable sword-and-shield Knight, a dual-bladed Warrior, a Raider with pinpoint assasin accuracy, an Archer for ranged combat enthusiasts, a Cleric that wields Orbs of holy healing power, and a Wizard with a magical Staff. Upgrade and collect new weaponry and level up with regular individual and clan quests."
Explore a World of Conquest
"Explore a vast, stunning, and lush open-world that allows thousands of players to simultaneously meet up, go on a variety of quests, and conquer the world. The seamless two continents of Aden can be navigated on foot or with the use of teleporters and flight on majestic wyverns. Confront monstrous world bosses, defeat Etis' hordes on the ramparts of Giran Castle, and socialize with your fellow adventurers in Talking Isle Village."
One of the most interesting aspects for us is that Lineage2M ten thousand players to battle at once, which is simply incredible especially considering it is played on mobile devices.
Lineage 2M sounds fantastic both for newcomers to the iconic franchise, and veterans who would love nothing more than to explore Aden on their mobile devices.
