This past week has seen a lot of news from NCSoft, both official and unofficial if you count the anonymous Carbine employee posting on Reddit about WildStar's future. Interestingly, one of the employee's claims at the onset of these discussions was that Blade & Soul had an English version of the game already in internal Friends and Family beta. While this "employee" presented nothing other than their own word at the time, today we received confirmation that this is in fact true.
On top of that, today NCSoft made it official. Blade & Soul will be launching its western version into closed beta this fall and full launch this winter. At launch, the game will be available in the US and EU in English, German, and French with full voice overs in each language.
Blade & Soul is an action-based martial arts MMORPG set in a fantastical Ancient Eastern world, with a story of revenge and vengeance that follows traditional wuxia literature. You’ll be battling enemies with a strategic- and combo-based combat style and channeling your inner chi to perform supernatural Windwalking abilities such as gliding through the air, running across water, and sprinting up walls.
Tomorrow (May 21st) at 10 AM Pacific, the dev team will be streaming the game and answering questions from viewers on their official Twitch channel. Be sure to tune in and check it out if you've been waiting for this free to play MMORPG for years now.
