Bless Unleashed is still happening in 2019 – here’s the latest class trailer

Leashes? We don't need no stinkin'... oh, never mind.

Did you forget Bless Unleashed was still happening this year? Because it is! Bandai Namco and Neowiz announced the new game last year, and though Neowiz was quick to remind everyone it’s a different team, not the Bless Online team, working on the game, the news that it would be a console-first MMORPG set angry Bless Online fans and frenemies on ablaze with anger over the belief that they were inadvertently funding another game.

“Every aspect, from the story to the combat, to the skill progression has been carefully crafted to portray a new console MMORPG experience,” the devs wrote last August. “Bless Online and Bless Unleashed are completely different games, sharing a similar art style and existing in the same game world. […] Ultimately, we want the Bless IP to thrive in as many places for as many players as possible. Hence, we decided to make a new game for Xbox One owners. It retains the world and style of Bless Online, but is a completely new experience with console players in mind.”

This week, publisher Bandai Namco has sent round a new video detailing Unleashed’s five classes: Berserkers, Mages, Rangers, Priests, and Crusaders. (Neowiz isn’t even mentioned in the press release, for what that’s worth.) The company also reiterates the 2019 launch window, so stay tuned for that.

I became markedly less interested in this after I learned that the werefolk couldn’t do anything but were. A disproportionate amount of were isn’t something one should want. I’d quite enjoyed the idea of playing something a little unusual, but MMORPGs must oh so tiresomely stand by their sixguns and make their unerringly shallow play to the lowest common denominator by striving to be the most generic and homogeneous of them all. More’s the pity.

I’m still a little interested, though. Piqued, you might say. Not exactly invested, but not utterly disdainful either. Whelmed. This might suggest though that it’s simply bland, which can be a worse fate than simply awful as at least a bad game might hold the promise of being so profoundly bad it’s funny. There’s nothing more repulsive than shallow blandness.

At least they have six-limbed dragons. I’ll give them bonus merits for that. The symbol of straight male insecurity that is the four-limbed dragon has become dreadfully belaboured. Yes, we understand that you’re scared of losing even more potential partners to beings more eloquent, intelligent, and manly than you are, but you need to understand, dears, that dragons are fictional. There’s really no need to amputate and lobotomise them in an unfortunate effort to improve your chances.

Though I suppose you do get to ‘impress the ladies’ in fantasy-skinned equivalents of Deer Hunter, so there is that. Whatever you need to do to be comfortable. Still, I do prefer six-limbed dragons, much more regal, so much presence! Delightful blighters.

Though I’ve become rather discombobulated, wrong of me to so recklessly divagate from whatever I was supposed to be talking about.

Bless, then. Might be alright. We’ll see, I suppose!
