Blade & Soul

Blade & Soul is a new upcoming MMORPG from the Korean NCsoft publisher and it’s a very, very promising MMO in my eyes. I saw gameplay from the beta several months ago and was immediately entangled, but as it wasn’t confirmed for Europe, I lost interest. However, NCsoft has now officially confirmed that Blade & Soul is slated for Europe either late 2012 or early 2013.

What makes Blade & Soul so interesting you ask? Well, for me it’s several things. The combination of fast combat that is based on true martial arts in Chinese tradition and also the story of betrayal that is classic from Kung Fu movies. Also, the environment is stunning with the Chinese trees and temples. Let’s not forget the main inspiration of the movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon with the amazing wind running that will allows players to semi-fly around like the wind and I just cannot wait to do.

See the trailer below. You’ll clearly notice the martial arts inspired combat with combos and insane pace.
