Blade & Soul Launching in the West on January 19, 2016

Blade and Soul 11-19-2015 - 1

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.

    I wish this was also single player with a great RPG story.
    Why must these Asian MMOs look so gorgeous while single player RPG games look…meh?

    Another title to put on my list to buy it really cheap or boycott altogether.

    My list is getting quite long now how fucking low can SJW gets.

    Sigh even when there no sexual images of lolis etc etc or sexy costumes they still never happy God even a hint of suggested they go into a hissy fit.
