This information is just in from my Korean colleague. NCsoft has announced earlier this morning that the Closed beta 2 phase for the highly-anticipated Blade & Soul will begin from 29th August till 10th September, with registration starting on 19th August. The players entering CBT2 will be announced on 26th August.
The biggest content addition will no doubt be the inclusion of the new Assassin class (2nd artwork above), teased months ago in the G*Star 2010 trailer (at 1:58). More info on the game here (link).
