Let me get one thing clear first, there isn’t any surprise announcement over at Tencent Games Carnival for either ArcheAge or Blade & Soul except both games will enter beta in 2012. Yes, bummer.
But a couple of trailers were shown for both titles, first up is a traditional sand art demonstration. I am guessing this is Mr Jake Song’s very own story. And yes, I spent time putting captions in it.
The second trailer is too long for me (it is Saturday and I am busy playing BATTERY), hence I will explain only a little in the trailer. For the rest of the trailer, you can see castle building, town building, naval combat and more.
You can read more about each race’s description here (link), but of course, teased in the trailer, many more races will be added in due time.
There is nothing much about Blade & Soul, except the official Chinese name and logo being revealed. Closed Beta 3 is due to start early next year in Korea, while the game will enter commercial phase next year as well.
