'Blade & Soul' Shadows of the Innocents Update Adds New Story, Dungeons

by Rainier on July 7, 2016 @ 10:17 a.m. PDT

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.

The long-defunct Ebondrake Cult has arisen in the wake of the Dark Lord's failed invasion. Can you stop them while mentoring the next generation of Hongmoon students?

Shadows of the Innocents takes players into Acts 5 & 6 of the Blade & Soul saga, chronicling the rise of the Ebondrake Cult in the wake of the Dark Lord's failed invasion. Three never-before-encountered heroic dungeons, including Gloomdross Incursion and Twisted Grimhorn Wilds, gives players new challenges as they continue on their quest. Gloomdross Incursion will be available in 4-and-6 player modes, while Twisted Grimhorn Wilds is a 24-player instanced dungeon that will keep players on their feet.

Blade & Soul's Shadows of the Innocents content update will go live on July 20, 2016.
