Lineage W begins pre-download for mobile and PC ahead of its global launch this week

Lineage W, the latest installment to NCSofts, epic high fantasy MMORPG begins pre-download for Android, iOS, and PC ahead of its global game launch this week. As you’ve already guessed, the game will be cross-platform. Here’s what you need to know.


Lineage W is a brand new isometric 3D MMORPG set in the world of Lineage that will officially launch globally on November 4, 2021. It is touted as the true Lineage experience where NCSoft poured everything they learn in the last 24 years of the game. Lineage W will see players revisit 150 years ahead of the original storyline. Classes include Lord, Knight, Fairy, and Mage. Each class has an available gender swap and can branch off to multiple advanced classes.

True to Lineage’s iconic game features, the massive continent war will return as well as the castle sieges and guild versus guild where you’ll fight for the various lands throughout the world of Aden and gain taxes for your guild when you occupy one.

Prior to the official service going live, NCSoft has provided a pre-download phase so players can enjoy the game immediately upon launch. It will begin on November 2, 12:00 (KST) for Android, iOS, and PC (you’ll need to download the PURPLE game client for windows).
