When it comes to Bless, developer Neowiz has been having a tough time. The game, which had been on many players’ hopeful hype lists has been closed for revision in Russia, cancelled by Aeria Games before it could even launch in Europe and North America, and undergone several server mergers in Korea. For many, it seemed like the game was done. But apparently, Neowiz hasn’t given up hope.

Instead, they’ve announced the Bless “Rebuild Project”, which will change some of the game’s fundamentals via 3 main objectives. As reported on 2P, the Bless team will be “thoroughly” reexamining the game systems and framework, potentially scrapping the current game structure and rebuilding it from scratch, and adding new content.

This rework will take a look at everything — combat, crafting, how mounts and pets work, even the UI. Neowiz will be releasing more information on the project in just a few days on July 25.

    I don’t get psyched about new games anymore, because I’m always disappointed. I will let this come out out, try it and if it’s bearable, I will play it, if not, no biggie, life goes on.

      I’m the same. Might show a little interest in a particular game but nowhere near any level of excitement or hyped-up as I used to when I was a kid. People often call me “overly-negative” and such but let’s face it, there is only so much disappointment one can handle before it changes your whole outlook on… well… anything. Particularly the games market. You’d have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to notice what is happening to it and what a stale state it is currently in.
      Many others have expressed how “gaming hit it’s peak long ago” and I for one, am one of them. Having lived through the Golden Age of Gaming and seen what the industry has become the past few years, it would take something bloody spectacular to ever gain my trust in gaming again.
      I do still hold a little hope and the spark of interest for games is still there. I don’t think that will ever change.
      Most likely, I will do the same as you. Try it and if it sucks, leave it alone.

    Bless online is a unfinished game that not going success on the market and looking at jp server thing is not going very well for them too.

    I’m so over this game

    Don’t really hope much hope for this anyhow. Probably end up just being another shitty Eastern-conversion cash cow like all of the others. I find it highly doubtful it will be any different from the rest.

      Have much hope*

      Damn you, brain.

      I recommended that you stay with older game title that been out for a long time plus stop bandwagoning every Multiplayer online games. Play Single-player games if you do something with your spare time.

      • Kevin Flemming on July 18, 2017

        Bandwagon? What bandwagon? I gather you are assuming that I’m just following everybody else’s opinions on disliking a certain game? Well, no. No, I’m not. Funnily enough, I have my own opinions about games, having played them for the better part of over 25 years now and within that time have seen all manner of single-player and multiplayer games.

        Now, whether my opinion should mimic those that have already expressed a distaste for a specific game, that is mere coincidence, I’m afraid.

        Plus, who are you to tell me what to play? I’ll play whatever game I damn well like, thank you very much.

          Hey try to find some older Multiplayer games online plus don’t mess with the new multiplayer games online.

          • Kevin Flemming on July 19, 2017

            Err, no. Why would I want to continuously replay games I’ve already played? New games are the only thing that are even remotely interesting.

            And how exactly am I “messing” with new games? I am not a god, or have superhuman powers of persuasion. You’ll be surprised to know that people will make up their own minds about something, regardless of reviews and/or other’s opinions.

            Man, there are some dumb people on the Internet.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
