'Naraka: Bladepoint' Forerunner Beta Starts Today, Sign Up

by Rainier on April 23, 2021 @ 8:40 a.m. PDT

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

"I woke up lying in a mass of flowers, screaming red SOULBLOOM.
Bleak sky, blood-tinted sun. Metallic breezes. How pleasant.

This is Morus, a place forsaken, but never forgiven.
No Law. No Regulation. I can do anything and be anyone.
In the bloodshed, a warrior. In the shadows, an assassin.
Death is always a whisper away. There’s no escape.
It might be heaven, but it’s always NARAKA.

I’m the HUNTER; I’m the PREY.
Temple, forest, hill. Wind trembles. Peril pervades.
Axe, sword, spear. Weapons collide, bodies slain.
MORTALITY might bring me here,
but DEATH will never take me away.

Days I spent in killing. A hundred; lives I claimed with pleasure. A thousand.
Off the Cliff, over the Wall. Beyond the Edge; I am UNCHAINED.
Matched opponent? I met none. I was, I am, and I will always be the KILLER.
I was only steps away from the treasure, and a grappling hook kissed my heart.
An excruciating pain, a fountain of blood; A FAILURE.

And then I wake up, lying again in a mass of flowers, screaming red SOULBLOOM.
Bleak sky, blood-tinted sun. Metallic breezes. I feel the LUST, for blood and revenge."
------ Crimson Night

Naraka: Bladepoint provides a brand new experience of combat and world exploration, featuring a boundless movement system, an aim-at-whatever-you-want grappling hook, and a sophisticated combat system involving accessible block & parry mechanics.

The game 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.

Full facial customisation options are another new addition to Naraka: Bladepoint. Players will be able to fully customise their characters face to their liking. The in-depth customisation options literally allow you to mould facial characteristics like clay; offering almost limitless possibilities.

Morus Island has also undergone some landscaping work, enriching it with even more interactive elements: poisonous mushrooms, a rideable ballista and shrubbery that players can stealth their way through, among them.

Explore Morus Island in its best glorious beauty by activating Nvidia DLSS and Nvidia Reflex options.
