we are proud to announce some big news: today the open beta test (obt) has started for lineage 2 the chaotic throne 3: goddess of destruction. obt will take place on the public test server (pts). the obt will last for approximately 1 week, after which we will review all the bugs and errors, which will later on be sent to ncsoft. from there it is not too long till the actual release date. we want to point out that the translation of certain texts and names might differ from the original ones. do not worry, for those fragments will be renamed after the obt will has taken place. everyone who wants to take part in testing the update will start with a level 1 character to have a look at the way aden has changed. as a result all items gained during obt will be wiped, and the character levels will be reduced to zero. p.s. if you have an urgent desire to share the bugs, if you find any, please feel free to inform us in the following thread. start playing (instructions) nb: to settle the problem with ms visual c++ you need to delete your version of the program and then 4game will do all the needed installation for you.
