During a GStar 2011 press conference today, NCsoft announced a third title in the Lineage series called Lineage Eternal: Twilight Resistance. This is not Lineage III, but a Diablo like game with a top down point of view which uses a click and hold combat system, mainly used for spells, instead of the hack and slash style that Diablo uses.
It’s unclear if this is an MMO title or a multiplayer online RPG, however Lineage Eternal will feature both PvE and PvP combat with large scale warfare.
Lineage Eternal will feature destructible environments and interactive objects. For example a fire spell will ignite nearby plant life, players will be able to climb on top of fallen enemies to help climb over walls or throw a hook onto a pillar in order to swing across a destroyed bridge.
Currently there are three announced classes, Warrior, Mage and Elemental Archer and the game is set for closed beta testing in late 2012.
