    Default Blade & soul NA/EU aim for Beta 2015!

    Blade and Soul NA/EU Will Enter Beta Test in 2015
    Date: Aug 14 2014 Views: 3648 Comment: 12

    Finally some news about Blade and Soul NA/EU have shown up, yesterday at Gamescome one of the BnS fansite member had the chance to meet the product manager of BnS EU/NA and talked to her for a while about their plans for BnS. Though the information is not confirmed for sure, hope is in front of us, western BnS fans can get to play the game in 2015! Now let's see what infos has the Dojo Sensei brought to us:

    bns1

    Release date is aimed at 2015 (rather late)
    Client base will be Chinese client.
    Fatigue system might not be present (she strongly dislikes it but as I understood there are no concrete plans yet)
    Warlock class will not be included initially
    They will most likely have PvP and PvE servers.
    Plans are that you will still choose your faction on PvP server but there won't be a need to equip PvP dobok to attack players.
    You will most likely not be able to change faction on PvP servers.
    Edit: Game will be a f2p model but not interely free (I have no idea what she meant with that... But i kinda don't like the sound of that. Maybe its jusz B2P?)

    And there are some answers for the questions our players most concern about:

    bns3

    Why delay

    Many reasons. One big main reason are techincal differences in the clients. As an example Tera (good ping and fps in korea but horrible in EU mainly because how much faster the internet in korea is) They know how important ping is.

    PvP

    Bigger focus on pvp overall (especially owpvp since arena is already there)
    Tournis is a yes / same for esports. She mentioned the korean tournis as an example.

    No gamescom?

    Because they where simply not ready for it. She doesn't know wether they will be at E3 or not. At least it wasn't a definite no

    Multiple Servernodes

    She is aware of how important ping is and is already looking into multiple solutions.

    Beta

    Early 2015

    bns2

    The manager also talked about the light and dark path in endgame and leaving people more choice there. But the level cap/content on release are not decided yet. Thanks Blade and Soul Dojo and Aari for the exciting news! Now is it time for us to cheer up? lol
    it seems Blade & soul U.S/EU is still alive but it seems this sources came from ******* the original source is from BnS DoJo if i am not mistaken oh the interesting part is the beta client going be base of china ver oh joy......

    EDITED: find it!

    EDITED 02 : well find more info about the reason of delays!

    Sorry, but bns dojo is the worst source you could think of. 99% of the people claim to have talked to certain people, and then mentions about beta's and whatever.

    Well, assuming this is true (yay)

    I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't in beta until late 2015 (very, very late)

    By the time Black Desert gets a US release no one will care about it either.
    Everyone will be hyped about the new Asian MMO that's 10x better but 5+ years away from a US release.

    The cycle will continue as such for all time.

    Which will be what? I don't see any new mmo coming out that will compete with BD anytime soon, do you?

    I don't see any evidence that Black Desert is coming out "anytime soon. "

    Seems so. Played it like 3 years ago now? Might as well play Tera. Nothing special. Also way way to late as usual.

    Always thought it was funny how translating and 'westernization' takes 2x longer than developing the game in the first place.

    What? B&S trailer came out in 2005 and it was released in 2012. Man, Development took years.

    I for one anticipate this game, as I played the chinese server. It was actually pretty fun.

    BnS would've been "da bomb yo!" if it came out in 2006-2008. But now we've had more than enough action MMORPGs and there is nothing fantastic or ground-breaking left. It's just another one in the bunch. Active for the first couple months and then just dies out slowly.

    Meh, Action combat+adorable loli race=sold

    Same reason why I enjoyed Tera, I'm sure the formula will hold true for me in this, too

    I played BnS up to 20 in the Chinese beta, but having it not translated ruined my immersion so I had to stop. Not to mention I had over 300 ping. Was really fun though, so I hope they follow through and bring it here.
