NCsoft to Host a Lineage Eternal Internal Test Next Week - Is CBT Imminent?
According to Korean media gamefocus, NCsoft is recruiting for another internal test for Lineage Eternal, that will run between October 24 and 28. It's expected that this internal test hints at the public that the closed beta is imminent. NCsoft's Q2 financial report confirmed that the game will start the first closed beta in the second half of 2016.
In June 2015, Lineage Eternal had a focus group testing conducted by students from Seoul's Sogang University. Soon after the focus group testing, NCsoft announced that Lineage Eternal will be hosting 2 closed beta tests by the end of 2015. Since then, NCsoft made a habit of delaying the schedule and there wasn't a single CBT in 2015.
The latest news regarding the action MMORPG is that Lineage Eternal will not be shown at G-STAR 2016, in November, due to NCsoft's decision to boycott the convention. Will this lead to another beta test delay? We hope not.
