Blade and Soul promises a new class, engine upgrade, and new raids
MMO Culture shared one example of these evolutions, stating that Warlocks will be able to grow up into Distortionists. Next up on the table for Blade and Soul? Other than an upgrade to a new graphics engine, players have been looking forward to the next classes to hit the scene. We may know of at least one of these, thanks to a vision preview. The class in question is the Tusan, a fast fighter than can berserk up close or deal out ranged damage.
NCsoft itself posted a producer’s letter today with even more in store for the western version of the game. In addition to teasing the same new class the Korean team is teasing, Producer Jonathan Lien promises plenty more in 2018, including more on the epic quest, challenging new 12-man raids, new solo and 6-man heroics, a new legendary gear upgrade system, new game systems (like fishing), new events and holidays, and the requisite quality-of-life adjustments. He also reaffirms NCsoft’s previous announcement that it’s upgrading to Unreal Engine 4.
