Blade & Soul is officially coming to NA and Europe, it’s F2P!

Stop the press! After many years of waiting and many fans actually giving up all hope, NCsoft has just announced the upcoming release of the martial arts MMORPG Blade & Soul in North America and Europe! The game is going to launch in English, German and French and will be free-to-play! Pardon us for the excessive use of exclamation marks, but it is what many years of complete silence and plenty of hype did to us!

Anyway, the Blade & Soul western closed beta is planned for this fall, while the launch is expected during the winter. A Blade and Soul Twitch livestream is planned for tomorrow, Thursday 5/21, at 10AM PDT/5PM UTC, when NCsoft is going to reveal more details about the launch and show pre-alpha gameplay.

The Blade and Soul team didn't forget about the many fans: “Finally, a big thank you to all the dedicated fans who have supported Blade & Soul coming to North America and Europe. We have spent a lot of time ensuring that we bring the best version of Blade & Soul to the West and we hope you’re as excited as we are to begin our journey in this incredible world.”

The western version of Blade & Soul is going be a bit behind from other versions (the game is already available in South Korea, China, Taiwan and Japan, where it is mostly a success), but the team promises that it will already “include lots of the updates and improvements from other regions already in-place at launch.”

Looks like this Reddit reveal about Blade & Soul being in a family and friends beta turned out to had some truth to it, after all! You can and should sign up for updates on the official website. Here's the all-new, 2015 Blade & Soul trailer.
