'Blade & Soul' Unchained Update Adds Warlock Class, New Environments

by Rainier on Feb. 18, 2016 @ 2:12 p.m. PST

Blade & Soul is an Asian Martial Arts MMORPG that breaks the traditional confined and monotonous game plays, providing the gamers a completely new experience.

Blade & Soul delivers an engaging story and vibrant world for players to explore. In the game, players must fight to avenge the death of their fallen master in a classic Wuxia storyline. Wuxia, which literally means "martial hero", is a broad genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists in ancient China. As players explore the world in Blade & Soul, they will see a fusion of Asian cultures that delivers stunning landscapes and vistas.

Blade & Soul defies typical MMO conventions, delivering action-based combat with ability combos and a flexible party role system that does not require dedicated healers. It gives players unprecedented movement abilities around the world as their characters leap over mountains and fly through the air.

After unlocking the secret techniques of the Hongmoon Clan, and bringing the Blackram Pirates to their knees, even greater challenges await on March 2 with the release of our second content update: Unchained.

Unchained not only introduces the Warlock class to the Jin and Lyn races, but also introduces two new environments for all players: the Naryu Labyrinth dungeon and Floor 8 of Mushin’s Tower.

The Jin and Lyn have reached into the beyond and tapped into the dark powers necessary to train as Warlocks.

Using mid-range abilities, the Warlock snares their enemies, executes fast and furious combos, and can then summon a massive, demonic Thrall to finish them off. The mixture of dark shadowy magic and explosively vibrant techniques, the Warlock has substance, in addition to being able to dish out serious damage. Stay tuned for our Warlock class week beginning February 22 for more information on this highly anticipated new class.

Naryu Labyrinth

For those looking to test their skill, the Naryu Labyrinth offers a dynamic 3-stage encounter designed to challenge the abilities of max level players. After each encounter, one of the doors leading to the next area of the dungeon will unlock at random—every time you enter can be a totally new and challenging experience.

Naryu Labyrinth is a Heroic dungeon available in both 6- and 4-player versions.

Floor 8 of Mushin’s Tower

The obstacles only get tougher as we climb to the final floor of the first section of Mushin’s Tower. Put your skill and preparation to the ultimate test as you take on an ethereal manifestation of Mushin himself in this Heroic single player encounter.

In addition, there will be new features, class balance changes and updates to the overall game experience for fans to look forward to in the coming weeks.

Blade & Soul: Unchained is set to arrive on March 2 in North America and Europe
