Blade and Soul is NCsoft’s tribute to the amazing martial arts genre, offering exciting action combat that is admittedly inspired by films such as House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This is a game that features a beautiful world to explore and plenty of amazing cutscenes and impressive bosses to fight. Special moves like wall running are also part of the deal. The art in the game was created by Hyung-Tae Kim, a renowned Korean artist famous for his work in manga and videogames such as the Magna Carta. His visual style mixes the characteristic anime visuals with a sometimes mature flavor, assuring that the Blade and Soul world is at the same time diverse and harmonized.

Blade and Soul features six classes: a stealthy Assassin, the lethal Blademaster, the axe-wielding Destroyer, the flexible Force Master, the almighty Kung Fu Master, and the mysterious Summoner. The game offers the usual PvE, but as soon as players join a faction they’ll be able to enter PvP combat.

This is a very exciting game that offers some fast-paced combat, a few likeable characters, a character creation system capable of creating extremely diverse and detailed avatars, collectable outfits, and an astonishing artistic style that makes Blade and Soul look different from any other MMORPG out there. An exciting addition to the action MMORPG genre.

Blade and Soul, 9.5 out of 10 based on 535 ratings

      I understand Spanish, so I know what you said :)

      And yes, the game looks amazing, very fast-paced and beautiful, although some players are saying it has a lot of grind. I hope it’s not that bad :)

    I’ve been waiting for this game for years and they still don’t have a launch date for NA,so far after playing a bit of it in a non america version I can say that the game it looks quite good(it uses unreal engine 3 so yeah)the combat is quite good and the game gives you a different style from the typical mmo that makes you feel like if you are in one of those Chinese movies where the people jump and glide on the air,very awesome.

      Yeah, the game really looks amazing. My only concern (besides no release date) is that the US and EU versions may be slim on content compared to the Korean version. Hopefully they’re adding some more content to it before launch 😐

    I already played this game,and is damn hard to get it…The download takes a lot…you have to use an ID number which is given when u make an account at QQ…also you need a booster to play..the ping is really high…from 180 to about 400…even with boosters…and some chained connections through the internet,the graphics are stunning,you can have even the korean graphic style in the CN servers…the gameplay is cool…the only thing that kill’s the game is the precious “ping”. You can have a fair gameplay with 180 above ping at some hours of the day.To play this game you also need to modify the applocale to simplified chinese,and to apply a lot of patches…Overall…is a very good game,but it needs just a few improvements. ^^

        That’s true xD It took me 3 days to get it done with all work,and work means download,finding all the patches,and pre-patches,and to find out how to make it run on my laptop…For short…only those who live near China or Korea will be able to play the game a bit better that us xD
