Lineage: The Blood Pledge was recently released in North America, and is most well known here for the migration of Lord British, the creator and ruler of the Ultima universe. Featuring a staggering 150,000 users before being formally opened to Japan, Lineage has shown itself to be one of the heavyweights of the MMORPG genre. Lineage is currently available for download, and offers a free thirty-day trial for North American users, after which billing will begin at $15 a month.
