*AUSTIN, Texas, April 24, 2008* – NCsoft^® today announced the release
of /Hellbound//^™ //,/ the newest addition to the /Lineage/^® / II/
franchise, in conjunction with its /4^th Anniversary Edition/ retail
package. Continuing the storyline and content from December’s popular
expansion /Kamael//^™ /, /Hellbound/ increases the game’s level capacity
to 85 and adds significant quests and skills. Players finally get the
chance to best the diabolical boss Beleth fighting their way through
multiple towers in the Steel Citadel. Enhancements to the pet system
enable players to grow their wolf pet into a mount called a Fenrir.
Additionally, this update adds more transformation options, where
players earn the ability to temporarily transform into a powerful
alter-ego with special skills that will aid them in their ventures.

The /Hellbound/ expansion is free to current /Lineage II/ subscribers;
however, there are many added bonuses for those who purchase the /4^th
Anniversary Edition/, available this week in stores. Customers who
purchase this game pack receive the game client, all /Lineage II/
expansions including /Hellbound/, plus an unprecedented sixty days of
game time. Customers also receive two exclusive in-game items, and
/Lineage II/ fans that have had accounts for a year or more can take
advantage of special discounts on account services, including gender,
character name and server changes.

/Lineage II/ is known as the gaming market’s premier
player-versus-player (PvP) online role-playing game, with a customer
reach of more than 19 million players worldwide.

“The content in our /Hellbound/ expansion really rounds out what we
started in /Kamael/,” said Tim Tan, NCsoft’s North American producer of
/Lineage II/. “The expansion was very popular with our players and we’re
happy to follow up with more content so soon after its launch. Players
can now really sink their teeth into the Hellbound area of the game, and
the raised level cap gives them a fighting chance against Beleth! The
/4^th Anniversary Edition/ box we’re releasing today adds value for our
current players, but we also encourage our former players to check out
the unique account service loyalty benefits and start playing again.”

The/ Lineage II 4^th Anniversary Edition/ retail pack is available
starting this week for an estimated street price of US $39.99. For more
