Rumor: Blade & Soul might be in internal testing for US release

I repent.

Hey, you all remember the guy causing a whole kerfluffle about the fact that WildStar is supposedly going free-to-play? Good times! But the Redditor who started that thread wasn’t done revealing internal secrets, although the account seems to have subsequently been banned (possibly for ban-dodging, possibly for being a jerk). In a comment, the supposed anonymous employee claims that Blade & Soul is currently in friends-and-family testing within NCsoft for a US release.

Blade & Soul came out in Korea roughly seven million years ago, give or take, and the fact that it hasn’t been localized was a source of great consternation among would-be fans. While the source is anonymous and at this point the whole thing is nothing but a rumor, it’s a rumor that does have the shape of a true story to it. Feel free to get your speculation on down and out of your system in the comments.

About 50% of the time, right? At least when it comes to releases and closures…. And F2P conversions…

I hope not Madda. That Gabe didn’t turn out so great after so long a wait in development hell.

I would totally resurrect my dead to the world Ellin into Lyn form for the sheer joy of it.

I hope this isn’t life since kind of sick joke. I’d love to see that game over here.
Hopefully in some kind of non-ruined state!

dirtyklingon ArtemisiaWS Damonvile and how’s innova? In any case being with another company is never as good as staying with the mother one.

dirtyklingon ArtemisiaWS Dnote Leilonii RonSterling Fact is, in Aion you can still pve even with like 400ping. Sure it’s not the best but not even too penalizing, you still have time to react because everything’s pretty slow. Obviouly pvp is all another matter. In Tera even in pve you’re screwed bigtime because you always need to dodge/block/react very quickly for it to work. 
Actually, I think Aion is the most permissive game pingwise I met, in games that aren’t korean I’m often screwed even just with 150ms, and they shouldn’t have the “korea has 30 ping anywhere” problem.

Meanwhile, those of us waiting on PSO2 to come to the West are reading this while silently crying in our Monomates…
