Hey, so Bless Unleashed is still happening. Bandai Namco sent ’round a brand-new trailer for the game today, introducing the Ranger class, which it says is “built to deal death from afar as they unleash lethal bow-and-arrow attacks to defeat multiple enemies at once or take down the mightiest of beasts.”
MMO players will recall that the Bandai Namco and Neowiz announced the new game last year in a startling move. Neowiz told us there’s a totally different team working on this game – it’s not the Bless Online team still updating the PC game – and that it’s a “whole new game, built from the ground up in Unreal 4 with a focus on consoles” with “new story, new combat, new content” and so forth. But news that it would be a console-first MMORPG angered Bless Online players who nevertheless believed their early access dollars were effectively funding another game.
The game is still expected to launch on Xbox One later this year. The new assets are down below.
