NCsoft’s Blade & Soul will enter its commercial P2P phase on 30th June 2012, which is just a few days from now. This is also just 9 days after the game went into its free for all Open Beta phase which started on 21st June.
The monthly fee (30 days unlimited access) is priced at KRW 23,000, which is near USD 20.00. Although this is slightly more expensive than Aion Korea, Aion’s monthly card actually has a limit of 300 hours.
There are currently no plans to release hourly cards, which is a popular payment option in Korea. However, seasonal time cards will be considered after Blade & Soul goes commercial.
Early pre-subscribers starting from today till 29th June will be rewarded with exclusive game items and discount vouchers.
