The China server for Blade & Soul, published by Tencent Games, recently saw its biggest update of the year, which included new playable classes added to certain races among many other new features. Not willing to be outdone by competitor’s massive Dragon Nest event, Tencent Games held its own Blade & Soul live event too this past weekend, and discussed about upcoming new content.
The new pet system will be arriving this August in the China server. It was mentioned the bonus buff will not directly boost character stats, but no additional details were given. Players can obtain the pets in-game through PVP (I am guessing points exchange) or collecting parts to form a full pet.
Next is the wings system due late this year, and note it is not “flight” system. It is not clear what the new wings would actually do, but it was confirmed there would be no aerial PVP, as it will affect the whole PVP system where moves such as attacking from the back is an important function. Blade & Soul has full PVP tournaments running in South Korea and China for some time already.
I shall skip pass the upcoming new PVP and PVE features, since they are really standard content. According to reports, the NCsoft has confirmed the 9th class is being developed right now. Also, the mobile game, Blade & Soul Mobile, will be launching in China later this year. Nothing has changed, with players aiming to collect character cards for battle and upgrading them for new graphics.
