AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2007—NCsoft® today announced the release of Episode 5, Temple of Shadows™, the latest free content update to its North American Lineage® service.

In Temple of Shadows, players will see nearly 450 megabytes of new content including a first look at the Dark Elf controlled, Lastabad corridor. The Lastabad, a complex, maze-like dungeon, will provide a formidable test for all players who must resolve its puzzling turns and time-locked doors while fighting hordes of Dark Elves. Failure to navigate the maze in the allotted time teleports the player back to square one to begin again.

Other maps include the self-titled Temple of Shadows where “Karma,” a new type of gameplay will be introduced. Earning Karma gets players to higher levels of the Temple and unlocks more quests and craftable items.
