NC Soft pumping out another MMO besides Aion

So ive been a lurker at this site for quite some time, but haven't been able to find any info or discussions about Blade and Soul by NCSoft. The game looks pretty awesome, as I am assuming the trailer released is in game graphics since you see damage numbers as well as the actual cursor at one point.

But more on point. The graphics look astonishing, and the combat system looks like it employs something similar to a fighter game (I doubt its true fighter mechanics since thats probably still a few years away) and looks like you can and jump at rediculous speeds and heights.

Anyways, I doubt I'm doing it any justice by talking right now, but you can see the trailer at youtube.com link is:

So yeah, this video has been out for a while now, and I just found it weird that no one really talks about it here, though I guess I can understand, considering all of the games that are due to release this year (this game is supposedly gunna start beta in the forth quarter of the year).

Anyways, heres hoping the game delivers on the what the trailer suggests!

PS: Looks like this game could "eventually" come to the PS3 or other platforms besides the PC (possibly the 360, though I find that even less likely than a PS3 launch)....But still, if Champions and All Points Bulletin work out (as well as the plethora of other MMOs due out on consoles this year) maybe this game could stand a chance as well

    Yup, the info has been out for a while, but glad it's something that looks of interest to you. Hopefully it will be good.

    Like the others said, this is old news.  Personally, I'm much more interested in finding out what NC West and Carbine Studios are working on:

    I watched a video on it on youtube and read the wiki. It doesn't seem like it instrest me too much.

  • Yeah, I realise the info has been around since the summer time, it's just that since I frequent this site fairly often I found it weird that the game didn't have it's own thread. Though like I said, I suppose the lack of discussion and hype could be kept minimal due to other MMOs more close to launch (DF, Aion, ER, etc.)

    Yea the carbine studios project is the one that they are being secretive about.

    Never hard of it before, but it does look pretty interesting, especially the fast paced running over walls and treetops, cool stuff.

    I think it's mostly because this site focuses on MMOs that are in launch in NA/EU, and other territories. Blade and Soul will probably launch in Korea first, and won't be coming to other areas for a long time, hence the low hype.

    I believe this will only be released in Asia only and it wil be put on the console.

    Blade and Soul is being developed for the PC initially

    bnsfacts.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/this-is-game-interview-47-qa-part-2/

    We only have 60 developers which is just enough to make the PC version.

     

    a closed beta is expected in Korea Q4 2009

    Blade & Soul looks definatley better then AION and it doesnt look like a wow clone like AION.

  • NadiaNadia Member UncommonPosts: 11,798

    no big surprise

     

    posted yesterday at the Blade and Soul fansite

    i think their website might hold a slight clue as to what thehy are working on. I dont recognize any of the graphic images used to decoratet that site

    When I first read the topic I was really hoping this would be about some new Guild Wars 2 announcement or something.

    Video was meh. I get turned off any time I see the little floating damage counter go above 100... kind of an indication that it's another ultra high level cap MMO that uses insanely high stats to make player skill completely irrelevant. Cheers!

  • dma1dma1dma1dma1 Member Posts: 82

    yes this game is being made this isn't a Rumor by the way

    I've seen that video trailer a while back, it looks very very entertaining.  If the controls were implemented well, it has potential to be amazing.  As with some asian MMOs the exaggerated body proportions and 'erotic' female clothing will simultaneously attract many players and keep many others away.

    Blade and Soul is a full year behind Aion's release schedule, and US localized Aion is not even in beta yet, so unfortunately don't expect much info or access to Blade and Soul for a long long while.

    She cuts me into a thousand beautiful pieces...
