Blade & Soul 2 is the sequel to popular MMORPG Blade & Soul, a Korean RPG with an almost cult like following thanks to its unique setting and fast-paced action. Combat remains the primary appeal of the game, with personalized fighting styles based around epic combo chain attacks taking centre stage. As well as a solid PvE offering, there is also PvE which takes the form of either 1v1 or 3v3 combat.
The original game was filled with East Asian legends and myths, a setting that gave rise to vibrant lands and attractive aesthetics that differ from typical western RPG fare. Blade & Soul II continues this tradition, meshing much of the original game with some new mechanics, zones, characters, and features that have been developed from scratch. Though it is worth noting that many players were displeased with the insufficient quantity of new features released.
Wild weaponry adds to the over-the-top character of the game. There are flying magical gauntlet wielders, nimble force casters darting out of danger, or oversized great-axes being swung madly with devastating effect. While this highly dramatic action isn't for everyone, if you're a fan of this style of games then you'll love seeing users of this excessive weaponry join forces to take down large foes. No matter which weapon you chose in an NCSoft game, you can be sure you'll look stylish as you level-up its abilities.
At the time of writing, a global release date has yet to be announced. However, in Korea, Blade & Soul 2 is already available on Android, iOS, and PC.
