Naraka: Bladepoint is a free multiplayer action game that offers close-range action set on the mysterious Eastern region called Morus.

Naraka: Bladepoint is a 60-player unchained multiplayer combat title that features a boundless movement system that allows players to climb, hang, and even parkour. With an aim-at-whatever-you-want grappling hook and a sophisticated yet beginner-friendly combat system involving accessible block & parry mechanics, Naraka: Bladepoint is designed to provide a brand-new experience of melee combat and world exploration.

Integrating Eastern aesthetics and philosophy, Naraka: Bladepoint presents a forsaken realm of splendid landscapes as well as inexplicable enigmas.

24 Entertainment announced the inaugural Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship (NBWC) will be held early next year in a yet unannounced location. The NBWC will be the first official offline tournament that will pit the world’s best Trios teams against each other for the glory of their regions and the lion share of the $1.5 million prize pool.

Forerunners from all servers (China, Europe, North America, South East Asia and Asia) have the chance to qualify through one of Naraka: Bladepoint’s official tournaments. These include the Morus Cup for North America, the SEA Celestra cup and more for chances to qualify for players EU, Japan, Korea, and HMT regions will be announced soon.
