An awesome new trailer for Blade & Soul China was shown at Tencent Games Carnival 2012, and it comes with English subtitles as well for those who can’t understand Chinese (the English is bad at parts though). Still, it is very well crafted, with features of this epic game explained briefly but clearly. The 2nd test phase will begin on 5th December 2012 and be using the Korean Open Beta client (localized of course).
I have personally given up trying to obtain a key, even from the “black market”. Prices are now hovering around CNY 2,000 (USD 320.00) on average. Yes, the price to pay for entering this 40-day beta where data will be wiped at the end. Granted, there are many events to win a beta key, but still not enough to cater for the millions of gamers in China. These prices are also double than what gamers paid for during the debut test.
