What is Throne and Liberty?
Throne and Liberty is an upcoming MMORPG developed by NCSoft. The game is part of the Lineage series and was first titled as Lineage Eternal in 2011. Lineage is an MMORPG that has been running since 1998! Lineage is still very popular in Asia and the United States. Not too long ago (november 2021), NCSoft released Lineage W in East Asia.
Throne and Liberty has undergone a long development cycle since it was first announced as Lineage Eternal in 2011. After several changes to the development team in 2017, the developers decided to upgrade the game’s engine from the same engine as the original Guild Wars to Unreal Engine 4.
The upgrade brought significant improvements to the game’s graphics and mechanics, allowing for more immersive gameplay and a better overall experience for players. Despite the long development cycle, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the game, which is expected to happen in the near future.

What are the Classes in Throne and Liberty?
Throne and Liberty uses a ‘Classless’ system. Your class depends on the weapons you choose to wield. This system offers a high degree of flexibility and customization, as players can switch between weapons at any time to adapt to different situations. This is similar to New World’s combat system. There is also no ‘Holy Trinity’ and therefore it will not include classic roles as DPS, Healer or Tank.
