NCSoft, after years of promising the game, has finally solidified the release date for Blade & Soul for North America and Europe – January 19th, 2016. And the servers will go up at 12am EST, if you want to get technical.
The pre-order packs have been available for a while now, but the purchase of one of these packs will give you access to the game on January 15th instead, with the three day head-start. In addition, those with the higher tier packages will be able to get their name reserved on January 11th.
NCSoft has also announced that the game will launch with seven classes (Blade Master, Destroyer, Summoner, Force Master, Kung Fu Master, Assassin, and Blade Dancer), 30 dungeons, a cap at level 45, and the 1v1 Arena.
And for those who have beta access, the next beta will be running from November 24th to the 30th.
