What should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone is news that Blade & Soul will be offering Founder's Packs for sale in anticipation of its launch. While we already knew that Blade & Soul's Western release was slated for Winter, the window gets a little smaller today as NCSoft revealed that the free to play MMORPG will release in Q1 of 2016.
Blade & Soul will offer 3 different Founder's Packs to North American and European players. Price points are $24.99, $74.99, and $124.99 with all three price points including full closed beta access and a 3 day head start come launch time. The two higher priced packs also come with extra in game items, cash shop currency and varying amounts of Premium Membership.
“We have been hard at work to bring Blade & Soul to North American and European players, and today’s announcement brings us one step closer to our Closed Beta Test this Fall,” said Nicolas Coutant, producer at NCSOFT West. “Our Founder’s Packs offer players meaningful bonuses and extras that will enhance their experience with the game before launch and well beyond.”
