Bless Unleashed plans a launch on Steam in early 2021

Will the second verse be different than the first? We’ll all find out at some point in the beginning of 2021 as Round8 Studio and Neowiz have officially announced plans to launch on Steam next year.

“Our players can look forward to the developers of Bless Unleashed […] to focus on smooth and in-depth communication with our users in order to bring you the highest quality game experience and services based on our player’s needs,” promises a dev letter. The same letter also promises that more details will be announced via the game’s social media channels and the PC version’s website.

For anyone that doesn’t recall, this isn’t the first time that Bless has tried to work on PC. The first attempt at a Steam version was sunsetted in September after a wildly underwhelming launch in 2018. The title has also had trouble in its native Korea and also tanked in Japan, with the Neowiz Bless Studio merging back to its parent company in order to focus on Bless Unleashed for Xbox One. It should be additionally noted that this Steam launch will be the rewritten Xbox One game that uses the same lore and visuals of the Bless IP. So hey, second time’s the charm, right?

if it’s free I might – just maybe – spend the time, electricity, and disc space to download it. The character creator didn’t look awful last time.

But there’s no way I’m giving them money for it. I mean, really? Again? And they couldn’t even be bothered to change the name – if they *want* the association with the past iterations? Then I’ll take the hint, thanks.

If crossplay w/Xbone, then sure, I’ll check it out. Otherwise fail

I can’t tell if they’re making enough on each launch to reinvest in a relaunch or if they’re just burning money from elsewhere (mobile) trying to make Bless into a “thing”.

Either way, this is my aggressive “meh” response. Unleashed seems improved and with it being F2P I’ll give it a spin again next year, but my expectations remain pretty low.

I did enjoy reading an interview from a German site where the guy just throws a ton of shade at their earlier PC release and tries to basically say, “DIFFERENT TEAM AND THEY SUCKED, NOT OUR FAULT!”. That’s a good way to instill confidence in your company, dude.

Will they be giving out copies to everyone they swindled with the last Bless?

I mean, people say that new bless isn’t a steaming hot garbage fire, so that’s a big improvement over the first attempt.
I wonder if my unclaimed 90 day sub and 3150 funny money will transfer over :D
