Your Mission

Your playable character will assist the Silverlight Mercenaries on their mission to vanquish the Dark Society that had gained control of the world after the fall of the Elmoreden Empire. You will need to complete quests, gain power-ups and level up your avatar in order to win the battle against these evil forces. As you complete quests, the map of the expanded world will open up to more exploration opportunities. You will also need to complete special dungeon quests in the Tower of Insolence to test your strength.

Design & Graphics

The overall gameplay will be appealing to many gamers that enjoy MMORPG’s and mobile-based apps. There is an automatic mode that will allow your character to attack targets while you watch the action. This function is useful in the beginning as the player learns how to navigate the controls and get familiar with the game. More experienced players will want to switch to manual mode to fight the battle themselves. There are a lot of story mode cutscenes will help the player have a more immersed experience.

You will start your quests in solo mode, which will work for the beginning of the game as you gain experience, skills, and inventory. However, some of the later boss battles and missions will be more successful when playing alongside other online users. You have an option of communicating with players via in-game chat. This can be helpful when creating mission parties and guilds.

The graphics of the game are very detailed. They are superior to the complexity that is often found with mobile games. During battles, there are visual and audio special effects that appear to show you how well you are fighting in the match. This is due to the fact that the game was built using the Unreal 4 Engine which optimizes these details for mobile play.

Main Characters

You choose from playing a human, an elf, a dark elf, or a dwarf. At the time of writing this Lineage 2 Revolution review, the race of your playable character is gender-locked with the human and dark elf being male and the elf and dwarf being female. Later on, you can choose the skill class of your character from a list of options such as warrior, rogue, and mage. Each class will have varying abilities like weapons and spells.

Beleth, the master of black magic, is the main villain of the story. He is the leader of the Dark Society that has taken control of the entire land. He and his forces had tricked Emperor Baium into building the Tower of Insolence while they use terror tactics against the weaker forces to gain authority.

Hardin is a sorcerer that was brave enough to stand up against the Dark Society. However, after many challenges, he realized that he alone could not defeat them as his power waned. Thus, Hardin recruited the Silverlight Mercenaries to assist him with the continued fight.

Emperor Baium of Elmoreden was the former proud leader of the now-fallen empire. He was deceived by the Dark Society into building the Tower of Insolence. He is now trapped on the upper level of this building.

Storyline

This Lineage 2 Revolution review will highlight the backstory of the game that takes place 100 years after the events of the PC game Lineage II. The Elmoreden Empire had fallen. Each independent territory started to battle with bloody consequences for complete control of the world. Emperor Baium of Elmorden was convinced by Beleth, a master of dark magic, to construct the Tower of Insolence as a measure of strength for any strong challengers of the Empire. However, Baium was then deceived and trapped, allowing Beleth and his evil forces called the Dark Society to seize control amongst the chaos. They were soon feared by everyone. They rose to power and began to conquer the world using their dark magic.

Hardin, the great sorcerer with magical abilities almost equal in strength to that of Beleth, challenged the Dark Society. He fought valiantly to temporarily halt their evil plans. Unfortunately, as the battles continued, his power started to weaken. In order to succeed in his plight against Beleth’s army of dark magic users, Hardin would need additional fighters for strength and support. He reached out to the group of allied forces called the Silverlight Mercenaries for help in defeating these evil forces, once and for all.
