NCSoft Announces Aion 2, Blade & Soul 2 and Other Mobile Games

Nexon’s annual NC Media Day had a whole lot of things to unveil ahead of the upcoming G-Star 2018, and almost all of those reveals were brand new mobile games based on the company’s established IPs. We can now confirm the upcoming arrival of Aion 2, Blade & Soul 2, and no small number of additional mobile titles.

Aion 2 takes place 900 years before the events of the first game and focuses on the arrival of dimensional cracks. These are more than just story device — they’ll actually will let players from other servers come together for large-scale PvP.

Aion 2 will also be lifting the PC version’s restrictions on gliding, which opens up what they call a “three-dimensional battle system.” The game will also let players wield different weapons without the constraints of class choice.

Blade & Soul 2, meanwhile, takes place years after the events of the PC game, where the characters from that title have passed into legend. Nexon touted smarter enemy AI and new ways of interacting with NPCs, as well as the removal of the faction system in order to build a “free community.”

NCSoft also unveiled Blade & Soul M, a mobile edition of the original PC game; Blade & Soul S, a super-deformed variation of the original game with character collection and open-world combat; and Lineage 2M, a massive MMOARPG with 100 million square meters of land to explore.

There are a lot of details and videos to take in, so be sure to head to the source link for some more in-depth coverage.

Our Thoughts

Well, these title announcements will either be of interest to fans of the IPs in question, or will be another mobile-shaped slap in the face. Though considering the way people have taken to the reveal of Diablo Immortal, we suspect it’ll primarily be the latter.
