"Truly free" means no separate account types or blocked game content—everyone is treated like a VIP! Other than the in-game store items, all game content (character creation, races, classes, skills, zones, bosses, quests, clans, crafting, warehouse, auction house, chat, mail, forums, customer support, and so on) is absolutely free.
Of course, a cash shop, but this isn't like LoTRO or anything. You don't have to buy new content, or unlock certain things. You get the complete game, for free, no restrictions, but with the option of purchasing cash shop items. While I despise cash shops...the no restrictions thing is nice.

They also said they vastly improved the leveling system(i.e, removed alot of grind). I would consider trying it out if this is true; as back when my cousin played, he made it to like 67, but it was taking him 7 hours to grind 30% of a level, this was doing at as fast as was possible at the time. The Grind was very intense. Also, the economy was purely ****; it cost millions to get healing potions, essential for leveling up, not optional, and monsters dropped mere thousands even at his level. Not like there was any type of trade to make money off of, either, you just had to be super lucky, and grind for money on lower level mobs. Still, he said for the Castle Sieges & hundreds of people PVP was very fun.

Also, one thing I REALLY liked, it was a small, but neat feature. Randomly, a sword would drop from the Sky and have a swirling pool of like dark clouds and **** around it, anyone who grabbed it, while holding it, would gain immense powers, however, it flagged PVP in ALL ZONES, and a marker was placed on peoples minimap to where you were. It was a small, just kind of "oh cool", feature.

A: Booster packs are the free item rewards we give you after completing specific milestones in the game. A question mark will appear in-game on your screen when you reach one of the milestones that we give you incentives for. When you click on the question mark, you are offered a specific goal to reach and a list of item rewards available once you reach it. Booster packs are truly free and include low-level items, weapons, and armor suited to your character's level and location in the game. These packs help you progress more quickly toward the compelling new endgame content.

Q: I'm currently a Lineage II subscriber. What happens to me when Goddess of Destruction launches?
A: All current Lineage II subscribers automatically become free players when Goddess of Destruction launches.

Unused time is converted to an equivalent dollar value and exchanged for the same dollar value of NCoin.

A: Yes. If you continue to progress to maximum level, you will be one of the first to experience the Awakening process and the new suspenseful and action-packed high-level content in Goddess of Destruction. At launch, any remaining game time is converted to NCoin, so you'll have prepaid funds ready to spend on L2 Store items.

Q: I used to play Lineage II, but I'm not currently a subscriber. Can I access my previous characters?

A: All free players receive equal and ample customer service.

Thanks for sharing, I'll check it out tomorrow. Though the game looks very familiar, like I played it in the past before.
