NCSoft has announced they will be bringing the Blade & Soul: Revival free update to western gamers later this year. This update will upgrade the in-game engine to Unreal Engine 4 as well as a few other features that will go down well with this Asian-themed MMO’s fan base. A new trailer can be seen below alongside some of the recently released screenshots.
The free update later this year will provide more than just graphical and performance upgrades, Revival will also bring other changes and improvements, including:
- Class changing – A new system will be implemented that will allow players the freedom to change classes and class-exclusive items, thus increasing play options for all.
- Responsive Dungeon Combat System – This system will give players instant feedback for battle heroics in the form of on-screen animations. This will also apply to joint attacks, party protection and other situations when performed well.
- Dungeon Difficulty System – To create a more dynamic experience for veteran players, a new dungeon difficulty system will be added. This will create further challenge for players on subsequent playthroughs.
As well as the above, the update will also include a host of other improvements such as graphical/lighting advances, improved loading and network optimisation and UI improvement.
Look out for more news on the Blade & Soul: Revival update coming in the future.
