NCSoft’s Blade & Soul is one of the more recent free to play MMORPGs to launch and it’s been doing rather well having now reached over 2 million players in the US and Europe.
Today the game received it’s first major content update called Rising Waters which adds three pieces of max level PvE content. This includes the 6-4 player heroic dungeon Bloodshade Harbor and the 24 player version called Nightshade Harbor. Also added is the single player Heroic dungeon Mushin’s Tower – Floors 1-7, and five new Hongmoon Levels to let players advance beyond level 45 to unlock additional skill points.
The update also brings what they call the PvP pre-season with the addition of a new UI but more information on Blade & Soul‘s PvP will be revealed before Season 1 kicks off.
As with most large patches there are also class balance tweaks and other improvements which can be found on the patch page.
