It also features a familiar special pass structure.

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

We can no longer make jokes about Bless Unleashed not having a proper launch date, it seems, because the game’s official launch has been announced for March 12th at long last. Upon launch it will be free-to-play for everyone, but for those who can’t wait that long, you can buy a founder’s pack (of course there are founder’s packs) to get up to a 15-day headstart on playing the game. Then your friends will all log in and you’ll be able to laugh at them because you’re Level Awesome and they’re Level Stupid. Assuming you have friends who are planning to play and aren’t willing to buy a founder’s pack, anyhow.

Of course, your friends can wrap right back around to lapping you if they’re willing to pay for the Bless Pass feature and you aren’t. Bless Pass is a 90-day rotating reward track, with rewards on both the free and paid side of things, and paying for the pass gets you access to far more rewards for completing daily tasks. This might remind you of a cornerstone of another game’s business model, but it only reminds you of that because they’re basically identical.

“Play dangerously” by supporting this scam franchise for it’s 3rd attempt at milking you.

As someone that owns rabbits I did laugh at that Bunnisher costume. They nailed the “where’s my treat!?” face!

The trap has been setted successfully. Now, let’s see how many cows they can still milk.

I think there should be a law for how many times a game “can launch” in order to milk more money on “promises”… this game have failed in every corner of the world. Now it … launches again. Its like the “last concert” from the old bands, only that there is never the last one..

There should instead be a law putting people who buy into continually buy relaunched games into a holding cell > to eventually be moved into a hole into the ground > to eventually be filled with concrete.

I was pretty impressed with Alpha, especially after Bless PC debacle.

This is not at all the same game.

The company are scammers.

It’ll shut down after 6 months.

Bless Online for PC was a disaster to be sure, and I absolutely do not blame anyone for being weary if they haven’t had the chance to try Unleashed yet. I certainly felt the same way and had zero expectations for this game.

That being said, after playing the stress test recently, I was blown away. It’s easily the best F2p experience I’ve had on a console, and probably one of the best MMOs I’ve played in the last five years. What really sold me was the world boss fights that are similar to the BAMs that Tera had back when it was still good, as well as active GMs chilling in town and chatting with players in addition to holding events. The game ran smoothly, combat felt weighty and realistic, and I think I got disconnected maybe one time the entire weekend.

All in all, I’ll be purchasing a pack, and am VERY excited for this game after having the chance to try it.

I’m all for giving Bless Unleashed a chance, but releasing Founder’s Packs after all the issues with previous Bless titles takes a lot of nerve.

Do not trust anything with the Bless brand attached to it. Do not give them anymore money.
