Will you heed the Call of the Deep in Blade & Soul when it launches February 7th? If you do, it might be for the new 6v6 battleground on the way. It’s called Nova Core, and it’s not your average PvP matchup.
“Nova Core is a large 6v6 battleground where you’ll work with your team to guide massive orbs of energy, known as Pulsars, towards your own ‘Gateway’ to gain points,” NCsoft explains. “There are two main paths leading to each team’s goal from the center point, and throughout the battle Pulsars will spawn in the center and travel along a path towards either Gateway. The key to guiding the Pulsars to your Gateway lies at the three Switches along each path. […] This being a battleground, the added difficulty of course comes in the form of players entering combat to stop Switch changes, misdirecting away from their own changes, and racking up the points that come from kills.”
The studio also released a new patch preview video at the tail end of last week; we’ve tucked it down below. Who’s excited?!
