Blade & Soul is a Korean fantasy martial-arts massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by NCSOFT and released one month ago in Europe.
The game takes place in a 3D open world environment where players are free to go anywhere and play whoever they like.
The game offers a real time fast-paced battle system where you fight with combinations of attacks much like traditional fighting games.
As player you start with the PVE content (player versus environment) first, but later in the game you can also join playing in PVP (player versus player).
The story of Blade and Soul is very common. You start as a pupil of the Hongmoon clan and as you learn, the clan gets attacked and you manage to be the only survivor.
After surviving the horrible attack you want to take revenge on Jinsoyun who destroyed the Hongmoon clan. On your journey you learn more about the world, Jinsoyun’s intentions and everything prepares you to the final confrontation.
The game has many things to offer such as PVE dungeons, PVP arena’s for 1v1 and 3v3 battles, open world PVP, a story line with quests, side quests and faction quests to spend your time on, crafting guilds, clan system, parties and much more to meet other players and to play your role in the faction of the Ceruleon Order, Crimson Legion or many others.
