What is Blade & Soul® about?

Blade & Soul tells the story of your quest for vengeance and redemption against a backdrop of Asian fantasy. Gameplay prominently features martial arts inspired combat combined with Qing Gong "light body" movement, as made famous by films like House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Is Blade & Soul PvP, PvE, or some combination of the two?

The gameplay of Blade & Soul is initially "player-versus-environment" (PvE), but players can choose a faction, enabling them to participate in "player-versus-player" (PvP) combat.

Will Blade & Soul incorporate any of the gameplay features that ArenaNet™ is implementing with Guild Wars 2®?

NCSOFT's strength lies in the variety of gameplay features we are able to offer across numerous titles, and we strive to make sure that each game feels distinctive. That said, trend-setting MMOs like Guild Wars 2 and Blade & Soul both offer innovative features that will likely be seen throughout the industry. For example, both games offer a beautiful and distinctive art style not seen anywhere else in the genre. And both games feature an innovative "Downed" mechanic, allowing players to recover from an otherwise mortal wound, which keeps the martial arts action fast-paced and brutal.


How successful has the game been in Korea?

Blade & Soul has been received extremely well in the Korean market and immediately jumped to the top of the game charts, upsetting powerhouse games like League of Legends and Diablo III. Since its Korean launch, Blade & Soul has achieved fantastic concurrency rates with more than 230,000 fans playing at a time.

How does this game compare to other NCSOFT titles?

Blade & Soul, like other NCSOFT titles, is a completely unique experience. For gaming fans looking for brutal martial arts, a refreshing and unique mythology, and art that is dripping with style, Blade & Soul delivers on all these fronts.

True, I've not played WoW since TBC so I'm not sure how it's doing now. But that doesn't really change the fact that any combo based game will definitely not be able to hold it's own simply because USA has crap internet as a whole. I'm not doubting that the game is fun, or entertaining, because it really does look awesome. All I'm saying is that there's no market for it here because we're held back by the limitations of NA's internet.

But hey, that's just my opinionated speculation.

What other games are action targeting type mmos? There Blade and Soul, C9, Vindictus and Tera. So far I have tried C9 and I do not like it that much at the moment. I am eagerly waiting for the english version so I will be able to know what I am doing in game. Tell me are the classes gender locked like c9? That was pretty annoying. Witchblade sounded awesome till I realised I had to be a girl.

I think it's pretty similar to continent of ninth, looks good but I also think it won't be too popular in the us.

I will try this game but keep my hopes low about it so I don't get disappointed if it doesn't work out.

This game is pretty epic. Played the Korean version of it and has a neat story to it as well. Might not do to hot in the USA if it has monthly fee but if it's f2p off the bat, this game will be epic. Tera Online just became F2P and it has TONS of people on it. Never saw all the channels full 1-10 in a LONG time.
