Blade & Soul Closed Beta Will Bring Sexy Wuxia Action to PC on October 30th

After wasting a hundred minutes of my life watching a boring keynote and waiting for relevant news that never came, we’re back to actual gaming news, with NCSoft finally announcing the closed beta of its wuxia MMORPG Blade & Soul.

Blade & Soul is known among the MMORPG community for its fast action and for the sexy character design and artwork by Korean illustrator Hyung-Tae Kim.

The closed beta will start on October 30th for the English language client, and on November 27th for German and French.  Here’s the full schedule:

  • Weekend 1:  Oct 30–Nov 2 [English only]
  • Weekend 2:  Nov 13–16 [English only]
  • Weekend 3:  Nov 24–30 [English, French, German]
  • Weekend 4:  Dec 11–14 [English, French, German]
  • Weekend 5:  Dec 18–21 [English, French, German]

Beta weekends will run from Friday at 10am PDT to Monday at 10pm PDT.

You can get a guaranteed spot in the beta by purchasing a founder’s pack, or you can try your luck by signing up here.

Blade & Soul will be released exclusively for PC in the first quarter of 2016, a whopping four years after its release in Korea. Better late than never.
