Bless Online Coming To Steam In 2018
In the most recent F2P Cast, we posed the question, "Are we still talking about Bless in 2017?" Well, it looks like we'll be talking about it next year too, as the game has been confirmed for a launch on Steam in 2018.
Bless Team member Will posted today on the apparently-new Steam Bless Online community hub:
Now, you may be asking “A Bless Online community hub on Steam? Will this mean Bless Online is coming to Steam? Is it being released globally?” The answer to both questions are… resounding “Yes!”
That launch window is confirmed on the Bless Online site and the game's new trailer. As expected, it looks like Neowiz is handling the publishing duties itself, after things went sideways with Aeria Games and Gamigo. Following those companies' withdrawal, Neowiz committed itself to the "Bless Rebuild" project, with testing taking place in Korea and in Japan.
No exact date is given for the Western release, so it could be launched any time between January and December. If you're lucky enough to be at TwitchCon, you can check the game out for yourself.
The Bless website's been updated with a lot more details regarding the game. It ticks off all the required boxes for an Asian MMO: two factions, humans, elves, beast races (dog and cat!), a cute little race, the usual classes, pretty landscapes, mounts, pets, dungeons, PvP, RvR, and so on. There's nothing regarding monetization or endgame progression/grind, but we're sure nobody will have problems with those, right?
