Currently we offer two options to download the client:
- Direct Download (L2Citadel.com)
After downloading the game client please follow the regular installation procedures. Note: Once installed, do not start the game and do not Update it. Alternative: Full client pre-installed Note: This is the pre-installed clean HB client, you will still need to patch it!

STEP 2: The L2Citadel Updater
To connect to L2Citadel you will need the L2Citadel updater.
After downloading the updater, extract it to the location where you previously installed the Hellbound client (default: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Lineage II').
The launcher will check and update files as needed. If you run into any problems or errors when running the game do a full check in the launcher. You can launch the game once all files are downloaded by clicking 'Start' and desktop shortcut will be automatically created for next use.
!!IMPORTANT!! ON FIRST USE YOU WILL NEED TO DO A FULL CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOUR CLIENT IS UP TO DATE!
