Lineage II, also known as Lineage 3, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the lands of Eorzea. The most recent entry into the franchise was Throne and Liberty which has been renamed to Lineage III.
Goodbye, Eternal Lineage – You aren’t real. Now you’re Throne and Liberty, a title change that seems to protect the Lineage IP’s sanctity? I had no idea there was such a thing, but hey, you never know what you could discover. The point is that this game, which has been stuck in development hell for more than a decade, suddenly gets a new name, which is always a good thing.
Is there any other beta news? Yes, why not?
What do you think exists but hasn’t been renamed for no apparent reason? This is a list of games that are currently being tested. Seriously, it’s simply below, and you can let us know if anything slipped into a new test phase without our knowledge in the comments. It’s true! We’re not joking around here.
We consider an MMO to be in open testing if it offers free, public signups and will wipe servers before launch. If an MMO is in closed testing, it’s because it’s in a private test phase that can’t be accessed by the general public; it’s also generally under NDA. We will include early access and crowdfunded MMOs that pass our standards. We do not mention so-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no hint of a western launch, or low interest for our readers; we also do not list expansions, with a few exceptions.
