Bless Online recently held a Press Event to give a few lucky creators a chance to get an early look at the game, which hits Steam Early Access on May 30th. Somehow TheHiveLeader snuck his way in. So what did he think? Will Bless be the MMO of the future? Let's find out!

    Huge criticism the game is getting - for good reason. Very empty world. Not sure why, I've heard different things. "Limiting Unreal 3.5 engine", "lazy f*cking devs", maybe a combination of both? But it seems if PvE is your thing, this game isn't going to do it for you in the long run.

    engine is at least unreal engine 3.6 since SLI support have been implemented in UE 3.6

    I think my own biggest fear is the empty areas at higher levels too. Either block 'em off, or fill em with SOMETHING. But they're definitely going to focus on the "Early Access" crutch and let people know this essentially an open beta.

    meh, not being a jaded individual myself, a solid "good" game that has some effort will definitely give me some entertainment for a few months.

    Good "first impressions".

    UE 3.5 - 32bit mode - it's just very limited as far as massive MMORPG applications - this is just a fact.

    Anyone who is going to go into Bless for PvE - it's very limited - this is your endgame in Bless:

    3  Dungeons

    1 Solo arena with 13 bosses

    1 10man raid

    1 3-Man wave defense mode


    Also keep in mind that Bless has a dungon locking mechanism - so you are limited how many runs per day you can do.


    The open world has a few elite mobs that are very limited (and will be farmed by guilds) - so nothing to sustain the masses.

    The game is a PvP game at heart - so PvE players know what you are getting into.



    I am getting the base $30 pack (without the Premium sub). This will more be than enough for me for the couple of months I plan on putting into Bless before moving on.



    I was told all the dungeons would have level 45 modes, so about 8 total?

    Thanks, I hadn't been paying attention to this game so had no idea it was PvP focused. Guess I just keep waiting for the next "Good" PvE Ememoh!

    What makes it a "pvp game at heart"? Gameplay wise looks like a typical pve grinder with some pvp tacked on, with the prize going to the players that pve the hardest.

    The empty dead world turned out to be true. The more involved fans are claiming it's because of engine limitations so don't expect that to change ever. It's pretty telling that their only fix to performance was to Thanos the entire NPC population.

    The end game seems super weak from a content perspective so forewarning to anybody still foolish enough to attempt to carebear their way through this game, random OWPVP is the spice that will get sprinkled on this flavorless chicken. I hope you've all budgeted for hours worth of 10 minutes pots.

    I also hope they don't purposely gimp armor skins to up-sell cosmetics (I'm pretty sure they will though).

    It sounded like mostly open world PvP.  Is it zoned or flagged?

    It's open world where you're always flagged for PVP unless you buy an item that unflags you for a limited time. I forget how long it unflags you for but it's minutes not hours.

    Meh...I was always weary about this MMO offering, but now this just sounds like crap. I have no problem with Open World PVP and all. This game just doesn't bring anything new or set itself apart at all.

    I think if anything is going to put me off playing this game, I think it's going to be the combat, I really would have preferred if they would have made it more like Skyforge and didn't have these combos.

    I'm going to wait until i can get more information on how the Paladin plays with the combos, It's not even the class i actually want to play, It's the mystic i am more interested in playing.

    I don't like the idea of skills being locked in a combo system.

    This isn't the MMO you're looking for. You can go about your business. Move along.

    Any time I see a company start going too weird with the tool bar, and over streamlining stuff I get the feeling they're preparing for an option to launch on console.

    Pretty good review, gave a decent look and confirmed some of we had been told about the ganeplay.
