Bless Unleashed has made a home for itself on the XBox since it launched earlier this year but that’s all changing as the free-to-play MMORPG steps out of its “box” and lands on the PS4 on October 22nd.
Keep in mind that this is NOT a relaunch of Bless Online. I didn’t think I really had to ever say that, but judging from multiple posts I’ve seen on social media, it bears calling out. While Bless Unleashed takes place in the same world as the now defunct Bless Online, Neowiz has created an entirely new game in Bless Unleashed, focusing on a more action based combat favoring a more combo-based gameplay and arguably some more “older school” MMORPG tropes including a fair bit of grinding. Personally, it started as a pleasant walk down memory lane for me but eventually turned into a reminder on why some things have changed in MMORPGs over the years. Your mileage on this may vary though. Check out my VERY in-depth First Look video below to see if this game may be for you.
Now I know that release date is a month away, but if you are REALLY eager to jump into Bless Unleashed, then, predictably, the Founder’s Packs may have you covered. Ranging in price from $19.99 to $79.99, the packs offer the usual assortment of cosmetic items, in-game cash shop currency, mounts, titles, and more. They also include varying amount of early access with the $19.99 pack allowing you to play on October 15th and the $79.99 bundle getting you in game as early as October 8th. The third pack, just for completeness’s sake, allows you entry on October 12th and costs $39.99.
For those wanting to play on PC, remember we should have some beta testing on that front later this year with a launch planned for early next year.
