When I first showed the trailer to a colleague, he was adamant it could not be a mobile game, but rather a PC or console one. I am talking about Blade 2, developed by Korean studio Action Square using Unreal Engine 4. Featuring 3 characters and the usual PVE and PVP modes, the graphics left me stunned as well. Closed Beta is scheduled for July in Korea, followed by Open Beta in September.
If you did not remember, the first Blade mobile game was launched in English by 4:33 Creative Lab back in January, merely 4 months ago. Download rates, according to the English version of Google Play, doesn’t seem high, but Blade 2 will most certainly capture the imagination of mobile gamers. Action Square is planning an extended franchise based on the Blade IP, including Blade 3.
