Before it launches officially on the said date and time, buyers who desire the Disciple and Master Pack as well as Name Reservation would be able to do so on January 11, even though January 15 is the window period when buyers could get the Founder’s Pack for themselves.
“This is a big day for us, as we’re able to share the official launch date of Blade & Soul for all Western players,” said Tim Granich, senior director of Marketing at NCSOFT West. “We’ve already had tens of thousands of players in our first two closed beta weekends, and look forward to welcoming many more beginning with the next beta weekend on November 24th and all the way through launch.”
It must be pointed out that the Blade & Soul is a free-to-play MMO which during launch will feature seven classes from which players can make their pick, and this also includes 30 dungeons, a character level that maxes out at 45, as well as the skill-based 1v1 Arena.
Considering that NCSOFT put up the 2015 World Championship for Blade & Soul in Korea where more than 6,000 attendees filled the seats for two consecutive, the Arena turned out to be the game’s growing eSport’s main stay.
To this end, the gaming company looks forward to hosting European and North American reps take part in the 2016 World Championship after a delightful PvP game qualifier in the West. More details will be released later concerning rankings and sales, but pre-season rankings in Europe and North America will commence after the game launches.
Between November 24-30, the next Closed Beta weekend for the game Blade & Soul commences.
