Netmarble, a mobile gaming company hosted a media conference announcing the release of Blade & Soul: Revolution. A mobile adaptation of NCSoft’s free-to-play MMORPG, Blade & Soul. NCSoft had already released another mobile adaption of their game, Lineage2, previously. Unfortunately, the hype for the game died as quickly as it came. To rekindle their player base, NCSoft throws out Blade & Soul: Revolution.
According to Netmarble, the game in terms of lore and gameplay is going to be an exact replica of the PC version. The only thing that’s going to be different is the controls on mobile (obviously). For now, the company has set the official release date for December 6 of 2018 for the KR version.
Classes and Races Available For The Mobile Version
Just like with the original game, players will get to choose from all 4 of the races in the original game: (Gon, Yun, Lyn, and Jin). The classes, however only include Blade Master, KungFu Master, Destroyer and a mysterious new class. They’re tentatively calling it Machinist so perhaps it has something to do with guns. Speaking of guns, the mobile version is also planning to implement a 500 vs 500 PvP clan battle. Kind of like an RPG version of Battle Royale except you pick a side and fight for it instead of fighting for yourself. As for the PvE side of thing, it doesn’t seem like anything new will be added. If you’re big on mobile games, this may be a game you’d want to keep your eye on. Of course, if you want to play the game upon its official release, you may have to fumble your way through the KR version. There’s no news yet regarding a Western version of the game but it’ll come eventually if the KR version turns out well.
MMORPG getting a mobile version seems to be a trend lately. What with MapleStory M and the recently released Ragnarok M: Eternal Love, this market seems to be on the rise. Whether that’s a positive rise we’ll leave that to you to determine. However, base on the backlash Blizzard received after Diablo Immortal’s announcement, let’s just say players aren’t too enthusiastic about having their favorite titles going mobile.
