NCSOFT® West’s highly anticipated MMORPG, Blade & Soul, is now available
in Europe and North America to play for free. Set in a world inspired by Asian
fantasy, Blade & Soul invites players to jump headfirst into the game’s
breathtaking personal storyline of vengeance and betrayal, featuring an
innovative combat system and rich gameplay experience.
“The launch of Blade & Soul is a significant moment and represents one of the
most important online launches for players in 2016”, said John Burns, Senior
Vice President at NCSOFT West. “Fans finally have the chance to experience the
amazing gameplay, distinctive action and dynamic combat that sets this game
apart from others on the market”.
Blade & Soul delivers an engaging story and vibrant world for players to explore
as they seek revenge for the death of their slaughtered Master by the wicked
Jinsoyun. Featuring martial arts inspired gameplay and mystical movement
abilities, such as gliding through the air, dashing on water, and running upon
walls, the game’s fast-paced and fluid action-combat system combines perfect
timing, defensive skills and combo moves for players to develop their fighting
abilities for the ultimate strike.
Blade & Soul is fully localized into English, German and French, and includes
seven classes and an up-to-date feature set from the Korean version of the game.
Players will initially enjoy a character level cap of 45, more than 30 dungeons,
Acts 1-3 of the story setting, and other exciting content like the popular
equalized PvP Arena. Two additional epic-level dungeons were introduced to the
game upon launch – Blackram Supply Chain and E. Fleet Supply Chain – providing a
significant challenge to players and popular rewards. In the months following
launch, NCSOFT will release regular content updates and patches to keep fans
enticed and hungry for more.
