Lineage II is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month, and players will soon be able to explore the continent of Gracia when it's released as part of the free Gracia Final expansion. The expansion is actually available to play on the public test server, and the client can be downloaded here if you'd like to try it out before it goes live.
While the continent of Gracia is major addition with the expansion, there's all sorts of other features players will be able to enjoy. Refined PvP and arenas will allow gamers to show their competitive side; expanded clan features will kick in as you level your clan up to 11; and territory battles will provide a experience that is similar to capture the flag.

Discover the continent of Gracia
Journey through the skies of the breathtaking and perilous lands of Gracia, using the aerial transformation skills Aurabird Falcon, Aurabird Owl and the Kamael’s special Final Flying Form. While whisking through the air, be on the lookout for the new aerial and land based hunting grounds, which will challenge all of Lineage II ’s players.
Refined PvP combat and arenas
Gracia Final introduces multiple new ways for players to compete and experience the ultimate thrill of PvP. From expanding a time honored classic PvP tournament, the Olympiad, to include three vs. three competitions, and adding the new Aerial Cleft PvP arena where individuals can register and compete in random PvP matches, it has never been easier to get into the competitive side of Lineage II.
Expanded clan features
Level your clan up to 11 to earn additional benefits that expand clan abilities and membership. At level 11, clans will continue the struggle for economic and political dominance. However, additional Royal Guards and clan skills should provide an edge to those who prove themselves worthy.
Territory battles bring a new level of land control and provide a unique “capture the flag” style PvP experience that rewards dominating clans with castle-related skills and additional revenue. Unlike castle sieges, where battles are fought between clans, territory battles allow individual players and groups unassociated with clans to participate as anonymous mercenaries in these epic wars over the lands of Lineage II . All territory war participants can receive Territory which can be traded for new items through the Territory Manager.
