If you’ve been following Blade and Soul for… let’s say, the last five years or so, you’re probably aware that it is launching in Europe and North America at 12:01am EST, January 19, 2016. With just a few days left, NCsoft is making sure that you save the date and that you’re ready to play, Founder’s Pack or not. You should definitely take a look at the launch guide to know everything that will happen really soon.
First of all, the list of servers is comprised of 10 for North America and 12 for Europe. Even if you participated in the closed beta, you will have to uninstall your client and download and install a new version. You can download and install the launch client for Blade & Soul really soon, although the servers won’t be available outside of Name Reservation for Disciple and Master Founder’s Pack owners, as well as the Head Start period. All Founder’s Pack owners will have three days head start: begins January 15 at 10am PST / 7pm CET for both NA and EU servers.
Name Reservation begins January 11, 2016 at 6pm PST for NA servers, and 7pm CET for EU servers (ends January 14 at 10am PST / 7pm CET for both NA and EU servers), so make sure to jump in early if you want a cool sounding name that someone else may get first.
The launch client will bring new content, including new hairstyles, hair color, facial customization options, and additional skintones.
After the Blade & Soul launch, the Founder’s Packs will be replaced by Starter Packs, featuring a different selection of bonuses and benefits.
