Lineage2 Revolution is a free-to-play mobile MMORPG(Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) based on the popular PC online game IP “Lineage2.” The game stays true to its PC original, as it displays a stunning open field, raid, castle siege, characters, and classes in the mobile environment. Lineage2 Revolution, which was developed with the Unreal 4 engine, shows a lifelike fantasy world with a dazzling graphic quality.
In Lineage2 Revolution, players can choose from 4 races including, Human, Elf, Dark Elf, and Dwarf. And since the health points(HP), magic points(MP), and attack(Atk) abilities all differ among the different races, players must choose their race carefully. After the race is chosen, players then choose their class among the Warrior, Rogue, and Mystic. More classes can be experienced through class transfers.
