Lineage II, the immensely popular Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), is expected to release its sixth chronicle update entitled
Interlude: The Chaotic Thronebetween late March and early May this year.

These crooks better watch their backs though because NCSoft, Lineage’s developers, is already taking steps to track them down. As of this writing, the company is working with the FBI on a crackdown of illegal Lineage private servers. It is also coordinating with the South Korean government in the country’s bid to prevent the massive Lineage-related ID theft controversy of late last year from happening again.
