‘Blade&Soul’ is an Oriental Martial Arts MMORPG that breaks the traditional confined and monotonous game plays, providing the gamers a completely new experience. It is expected to open a new dimension of MMORPG through ‘game environment alteration,’ ‘expansion of tasks that a character can carry out within the game.’

The Oriental world portrayed by its unique graphics, diverse stories embedded in Oriental fantasy tales, and maximized action that has never been witnessed in online games until now will lead gamers to a completely new experience.

Product Information
Publisher: NCsoft
Developer: NCsoft
Genre: Oriental Martial Arts MMORPG
Website: -
Release date: N/A

Main Characteristics

• Oriental Martial Arts Action: It is full of symbolic and well known Oriental martial art elements such as ‘Energy Ball’, ‘Inner Energy’, ‘Swift jump,’ etc. The important themes of Oriental martial art fantasies such as justice and chivalry are richly spread throughout the game by means of martial art.

• Oriental-features: Breaking away from the traditional medieval fantasy world, it takes an Oriental mysticism as the background environment. The basic world-view is based on the Korean myth ‘Song of Genesis,’ and the factions within the game are also modeled after Korean mythological characters

• Constantly Changing Environment: Within ‘Blade&Soul,’ many conditions change according to the play of the gamer, on the other hand, the environment creates diverse situations for the gamers. This system will provide the gamers with a new experience that has not been witnessed until now.

• Powerful Action: The main motto of battles within ‘Blade&Soul’ is ‘super powerful action’ that can distinguish itself from existing games. Players can knock back opponents and use diverse fancy skills according to the condition the gamers are posed in. The game aspires to provide battles that are enjoyable even by just watching them. Everyone can enjoy the battles of ‘Blade&Soul’ through simple comtrol.

Kind of funny how much attention and detail the Koreans are always giving to the characters' boobs.



If this is what the game looks like in real time I might actually try it out for laughs. I'm a bit disappointed how vacuous and boring the character faces look though.

The art looks like it's from the Magna Carta guy...love his art. =P

I'd love that if only because my PC can't run a game that looks like that and because I know the PS3 can. Also, I wouldn't mind having a MMORPG to play on one of my consoles, preferably on the PS3.

I'll pass. Not that I'm the biggest supporter of either MMORPGs or Hyung-Tae Kim's awful design sense, but the game's entire look puts me off. Every time I see something Kim's touched, it oozes style but lacks any substance. Yech.

I'll pass because it's Korean and they are notorious for making beautiful MMOs which play like a high school computer class project. I'll buy the artbook, and leave the game alone. Unless, of course, a free demo comes out and I'll see for myself how the game plays. Oh and Koreans LOVE a grind fest...I do not.

But yes, I love how the game looks.
