April 28 marks the 18-year milestone for Lineage II, NCSOFT’s cornerstone MMORPG franchise, and this week will begin celebrating with in-game events and promotions. But before those details, indulge in a moment to step into the wayback machine and travel back to 2004 to remember a bit about Lineage II’s launch. Shortly before Lineage II’s launch, some lucky college students were among the first to get to try TheFacebook, and Google launched the beta of its new service called Gmail. “Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” grossed a billion dollars at the box office, even against the stiff competition of “Gigli;” “Yeah!” by Usher ft. Lil Jon and Ludacris was topping the charts, and that was also the year that “blog” was declared Word of the Year. What a time.

Back to the task at hand – the events lined up for Lineage II’s anniversary, taking place from April 20 through May 18 include plenty of buffs, items, special raids, and yes, even cake.
