What We Know
At the moment we do not know what the business model for Throne And Liberty will be, there are rumours of it being free to play with some pay to win mechanics but nothing has been confirmed as of now.
An interview with the developers did reveal some slight insights into the business model intentions, such as wanting the game to be Play To Win and really only offer catch up mechanics for casual players.
Is Throne And Liberty Pay To Win?
Currently it is unknown what the cash shop will be like for Throne And Liberty but the developers have alluded to that they would like the casual players to be able to keep up with hardcore players, presumably through catch up mechanics. However it is likely that paying will give some kind of in game advantage.
The latest statement from NCSoft is that they want the game to be Play To Win and will try to minimize any Pay To Win.
Youtuber Jay Evenly (me) made a video addressing whether or not Throne And Liberty will be pay to win.
Throne and Liberty (also known as TL) is an upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by NCSoft. The current version of the game seems to feature a 3rd person action perspective, which has changed since it’s initial inception.
The original concept for the game was that it was part of the Lineage series and a sequel to the first Lineage game. But after a few iterations of the game it now has its own story, completely separate from the Lineage games. The game was first announced and titled as Lineage Eternal in November 2011 but has suffered numerous delays in its release schedule, with the earliest beta testing planned. The first South Korea Closed Beta began in 2016, starting on November 30 and ending on December 4. NCSoft has rebooted the game as Throne & Liberty.
