69

NCsoft has announced that Blade & Soul’s first western closed beta weekend kicks off tomorrow (October 29th at 1 p.m. EDT). All you’ve got to do to get in is pony up for a founder’s pack. Says the company,

All players who have purchased a Founder’s Pack of any tier will have access this weekend, as well as a random assortment of players who signed up on the Blade & Soul website. Slated for a free-to-play launch in the first quarter of 2016, Blade & Soul seamlessly melds martial arts and mythology as players seek vengeance against evil forces bent on destroying their world.

NCsoft promises four more beta weekends in the leadup to launch. You can check out the brand-new When Heroes Rise trailer below.

How much latency did you get to the JP servers? As an Aussie, I’m expecting 250-400ms.

I didn’t have much expectations when entering the beta besides it could be as good as Tera but not as good as FF14 but to my surprise its one of the funniest mmos I have played all year.

Great voice acting, interesting gameplay, definitely recommend

Nonetheless, it doesn’t matter what you think, we have big boy and big girl dollars and if we don’t want to partake in consumer activism for the sake of your idea of gaming… that’s our prerogative. I didn’t play ArcheAge because it looked like something that I wouldn’t enjoy due to the monetary gating in it… but I don’t go around insisting everyone else think like I do either.

Madda Servers aren’t the same OS running sometimes and the patches are different. Network wise, NA and EU are different from KR so still have to test those

I set my browser to clear out the cache every time I exit from it, so I am only seeing games thank goodness. I haven’t seem the B&S one yet though.

I had previously sworn off founder packs but I bought into the lowest tier b/c I wanted to get an early look and I knew I would be playing this when it launched. Very interested in checking out the summoner class.

TronSheridan Damonvile Not really, since the Founder’s packs have other perks.  There goes your logic.
