Good news, Bless fans! It looks like we’ll be getting it in the west after all. According to the Korean publication Inven News, Aeria Games has signed a deal with Korean developer Neowiz granting them publishing rights of the game.

No details on the agreement — including what impact localization may have on the Unreal Engine MMO — have been offered. For now, questions remain as to what the released time-frame is, whether the Korean and Western versions will be region-locked, and how closely updates for the Western version will be released to that of its Korean counterpart.

Unfortunately, it’s likely we’ll have to wait a bit for answers to those questions. But hey… At least we know they’re localizing the game now.

    I wish people understand the real meaning of P2W before babbling about it. Am happy it’s Aeria Games.

    If its pay to win, game not survive long because who cares for another asian p2w mmo, and for updates and patches you need to wait years, thats killing asian games also, so not interested much twice atleast.

    RIP indeed… Dragomon Hunter was a huge disappointment, the latency was terrible. Forgetting the p2w model for a second, can Aeria even handle a game of this magnitude ?

    Guy calm down it has not been released yet provide proper dedication to constructing well thought trough ideas and send them too aeria if enoigh people speak up p2w might be avoided but do understand more games more people. More people more salaries best option write down taboos and do’s for cash shop so they could see the botom line that every one can accept

      It’s nice that you’re optimistic but there have been many, many complaints already on the Aeria forums for their other games and it hasn’t changed a single thing from what I’ve seen. (If I’m wrong someone please correct me!) I foresee them milking it to the last drop like they have for all their other games: charging ridiculous amounts for alpha and beta packs, selling founder’s packs, selling name reservations, etc.

    • SqueezyTime on April 21, 2016

      This is the best way to look at it. Also, even if the game is “p2w” it may still be completely enjoyable. I loved Eden Eternal for years, and that game was hella p2w; never stopped me from enjoying it just cause other people were ahead of me.

    Aeria Games Puplishes childish games only. And Bless needs a Serious Puplisher ala Trion or NCSoft. And Pay to Win is guranted. But maybe they sell the game for 20 Bucks and use Monthly Subscribtion

  8. Ravors on April 20, 2016

    UUGGHHH. Aeria… This sucks…… pay to win .. indeed. ..

    Aeria offered them the most money and they sell out.. Now aeria will capitalize with founders packs and pay to win items… character enchantments, mounts

    dead within a year after they milk every penny…. Save yourself the trouble and just purchase BDO instead.

    welcome pay2win…

    I hate to break it to you guys but.. ALL publishers only care about money. The “good news” is that the game finally has a publisher chosen, which means they are finally working towards an NA and EU release for Bless. Personally, I don’t care about the publisher because they are all the same, but I’m glad to get an English release of this game anyway.

    • Adzani on May 10, 2016

      I agree with you dude. This publisher is shit, that publisher is shit. I’m just happy finally Bless has NA and EU release and I hope no IP block.

  12. meh on April 19, 2016

    3 months alpha early access premium founder’s gold pack, only $999.99.
    2 months alpha early access premium founder’s silver pack, only $999.98.
    1 month alpha early access premium founder’s bronze pack, only $999.97.

    The only thing that is left to say, after seeing Aeria somewhere in context, is a sad “Why?”.

  14. James on April 19, 2016

    I really wanted Trion Worlds to publish Bless online. I really do believe they did choose a wrong publisher.

    • Grimexp on April 19, 2016

      hahahahah this one had me laughing i got to hand it to you lol funny

  15. Cristóbal on April 19, 2016

    wow, Is really sad, Aeria Games suck so hard, they only like the money, this game will be converted in bullshit.

  16. Wake Up on April 19, 2016

    Terrible decision. But you guys have to realize something, these developers might care about their games at first when they’re being made, but then they meet with corporate execs like Aeria who has money from cash cow-ing games, who offer them shit loads of cash to publish it for them, and from there, that lump sum makes them not really care what happens to the game beyond that. These people need to start publishing their own games so they stay good quality.

  17. lamak251 on April 19, 2016

    Oh yeah…really “good” news. Aeria is worst publisher i ever see.Even the Trion not that greedy as this BS publisher.

  18. ZMemme on April 19, 2016

    RIP in pieces this game
