Bless Online’s monthly subscription puts some countries at a financial disadvantage
The controversial business model of the upcoming Bless Online continues to perplex and disturb potential players. Neowiz posted a list of nine items that will be sold in the game’s store, and very quickly players figured out that no apparent effort had been made to regionalize the prices.
This is especially concerning when it comes to the monthly subscription-that’s-not-a-subscription, which is fixed at $15 USD. That means that players in some other countries where the exchange rate is worse will be paying more — a lot more — for the monthly benefits.
“Seems like they didn’t regionalize the prices,” one player wrote. “Hoping that they do it cause it’s gonna be very expensive for third-world countries like mine, even the cheapest pack and the one-month premium [sub] is already expensive without regionalized prices.”
At the time of this writing, the Steam thread discussing the prices has exploded to 205 posts so far without any word from Neowiz.
