NCSOFT has announced that Blade & Soul is now available in Europe and North America to play for free. In order to celebrate this announcement, NCSOFT released some new screenshots and a new trailer that can be viewed below.
As the press release reads, Blade & Soul invites players to jump into the game’s personal storyline of vengeance and betrayal, featuring an innovative combat system and rich gameplay experience.
John Burns, Senior Vice President at NCSOFT West, said:
“The launch of Blade & Soul is a significant moment and represents one of the most important online launches for players in 2016. 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 promises to deliver 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.
