PAX East 2019: Bless Unleashed’s overview trailer actually looks good

Slightly less leashing than expected.

Bless Unleashed has been rolling out class videos over the last couple of months, but now, Bandai Namco is dropping a more generalist trailer ahead of its showing at this weekend’s PAX East. If I can be honest, the game looks really good. If you had never heard of Bless Online and never paid any attention to the Neowiz rollout last year, you can easily see how this kind of game coming to Xbox One could be super appealing. It’s pretty. It’s actiony.

As we’ve previously written, Bandai Namco, not Neowiz, is running the Unleashed show, and the game is not a direct port – it’s been “built from the ground up in Unreal 4 with a focus on consoles” with a whole new story and combat design. It’s still slated to launch sometime this year. Here’s the trailer:

Mreh.

Right now the only PAX announcement I’ve seen so far that excites me is that Ashley J Williams is being added as a Survivor in Dead By Daylight.

After the scam/debacle that was Bless Online for PC, MOP should boycott providing any publicity on the new title until amends are made to the PC players (I know this is ran by Bandai and not Neowiz, but that does not absolve the brand from the past).

i agree with Pepperzine. These developers who have nothing to do with previous iterations of the franchise deserve 0 coverage and their hard work to be thrown in the bin because some people were stupid enough to actually pay for bless onlines pc release. Lmao

Their efforts would have been better spent on a novel project that isn’t reusing charred assets pulled from a dumpster fire that is still actively burning. It would be better appreciated and serve their resumes better. But hey, money is money I suppose. Bandai just wants to make a quick buck like Neowiz did. And taking assets, design ideas, branding, etc is far from nothing to do with previous iterations.

This is kind of a neat thing. It’s like, “What do different teams do when given the same base assets.”
