SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Netmarble Games Corp., the fastest-growing mobile game company in Asia, has launched its highly anticipated mobile MMORPG Lineage 2: Revolution in 54 countries across North America, Europe, Oceania and The Middle East. Leading up to today’s launch, more than 1.5 million players around the world pre-registered for Lineage 2: Revolution.
This follows the game’s incredible, ground-breaking success since it first debuted in South Korea late last year, becoming the top grossing game on Google Play and the App Store in 11 additional Asian territories. The game also launched in Japan in August and became the top grossing game on the App Store in just 18 hours. The launch of Lineage 2: Revolution introduces the largest scale multiplayer gameplay ever created for mobile to North American players.
Lineage 2: Revolution is a free-to-play mobile MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) based on the popular PC online game IP “Lineage 2,” which has entertained more than 30 million players since it first debuted. Lineage 2: Revolution stays true to its PC roots, displaying a stunning open field, raids, 200-player castle sieges, character re-designs and classes, all in a mobile environment. A fully-featured MMORPG provides seamless open-world environments, real-time 3vs3, 5vs5, 20vs20 and 50vs50 PvP battles, as well as lifelike fantasy worlds with dazzling graphics backed by the Unreal 4 engine.
“We are ecstatic at the rapidly increasing support we’ve seen with the Lineage 2: Revolution pre-registration and pre-download numbers,” said Netmarble’s Chief Global Officer Seungwon Lee. “Everyone at Netmarble has been gearing up for today’s launch, and we couldn’t be more excited for players around the world to finally get their hands on the game.”
Lineage 2: Revolution generated major attention from North American gamers at TwitchCon last month where Netmarble partnered with late night host Conan O’Brien for a live broadcast from the event’s esports stage to announce the game’s launch date and help demonstrate the game’s 50vs50 Fortress Siege gameplay mode. The battle featured top streamers from around the world and drew more than 1.2 million viewers on Twitch, shattering records and garnering lots of interest from gamers around the world.
