Bless Unleashed is reworking the game’s interface and controls for PC

Believe it or not, Bless Unleashed has still not launched for PC, after launching on pretty much everything else. But it is still slated for this year, in spite of the fact that Round8 and Neowiz still aren’t talking about founder’s packs and head starts. Part of the slow rollout appears to come down to the fact that devs are still genuinely working on fixing the game for PC, as evidenced by the latest dev blog on Steam.

“Since Bless Unleashed PC is built on the basis of a console service, many components are geared towards operating using a gamepad,” Round8 says. “Through several development discussions and tests, we realized that a simple conversion was not enough to provide sufficient operational convenience, and are currently improving many aspects so users who enjoy games using the keyboard and mouse can enjoy the game in a more comfortable manner. The inconvenience of having to use both the keyboard and mouse when navigating through the system menu has been improved so that the majority of operation can be done with just the mouse, and the use of the mouse cursor can be more intuitive.”

Players should check out the whole piece, as it dives in to “hold” actions, the overlay map, status effects, emotes, and other UI tweaks. “With these improvements, we expect users who have previously experienced the game as well as first time users to be able to play in a more comfortable PC environment,” the team hopes.

Bless Online was a scammey cash grab that even got temporarily removed from steam over lying about its features on the store page.
With that in mind, it’s nice to see the new devs take both their game and their audience seriously.
The game as it was during last beta was feeling “off” but it was still very playable. They have my respect for not launching with “good enough” but instead try to make a solid launch impression

So they haven’t figured out a PC control scheme for a game which has literally already launched 8 times over the past 6 years on PC?

Doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.

Forget about that PC game. This version was remade just for consoles (including revamping the combat system) and is doing alright. Now, devs are porting a console game to PC.

Bless Unleashed (console game) is totally different from the game you are thinking of (that disaster that was released on PC at least twice). Forget about that old PC version. The new one is basically a remake.

Lately I have begun to wonder if the actual code text input for games is done with controllers and not keyboards -since those doing the coding do not seem to know much about them.

I am glad that they are working on this, many PC ports nowadays are clunky because many times the chunkiness is with the menu systems. Like how Skyrim port was very clunky with the menu system but it took a modder to make it work correctly.
