Blade & Soul closed beta kicks off

Blade & Soul closed beta kicks off

The first closed beta weekend for Blade & Soul begins tomorrow, Thursday 28th October.  Those who have purchased a  Founder’s Pack will have access to the weekend as will randomly selected gamers who signed up to take part in the beta.

Blade & Soul is an MMORPG being developed by NCSoft.  The combat is martial arts inspired with combo fight moves and a ‘downed’ mechanic enabling players to recover from near death. Usual character customisation and quest based adventures provide the PvE aspect and there is a PvP mode later in the game.  When released in the first quarter of 2016, it will be Free to Play.

Here’s a video for a gameplay taster.  Sign up for future beta weekends if it appeals.
