Lineage II Expansion to Release This Month

Ertheia will introduce a new playable race to join forces and save the world of Aden.

NCSoft has just announced that the next content expansion for Lineage II, Ertheia, will release on July 30, 2014. As previously mentioned, a new race that the expansion is named after—the Ertheia—will join the ranks of Aden's heroes just in time to combat the forces of Shilen as the story further unfolds.

For background, early in Lineage II’s history, players experienced the struggle between the races within the kingdoms of Aden, as they fought one another for supremacy. However with the rise of Shilen, the Goddess of Destruction, and her focus set squarely on Aden, the races forged an alliance to fight together to save Aden. While Shilen brought great destruction over the years, the races leveraged the ancient power of Awakening and continually beat back her servants by awakening more powerful classes of their own.

Players will experience the new Lineage II saga now that the Seal of Punishment, one of the seven seals that kept Shilen imprisoned, has broken, sending shockwaves across the Material and Spirit Realms alike. This reverberation caused the Ertheia settlement of Faeron Village to fall through a dimensional rift into the Material Realm. Unfortunately for the Ertheia, their arrival in Aden was traumatic, as Shilen’s forces were awaiting them. But the Ertheia were not alone. As the last of Einhasad’s four original races (Elves, Orcs, Dwarves, and Ertheia) enters the playing field, they will join forces with the other the races and Heroes of Aden to save their world, all a part of the continuing saga within Lineage II’s epic storyline.

Keep up with the latest news for Lineage II and Ertheia over on the official site!
