Within days of its release across Europe and North America, NCSOFT’s Blade and Soul has already drawn in more than one million players.
“At NCSOFT, we are committed to providing our players an extraordinary experience across all of our games,” said Dr. Songyee Yoon, CEO of NCSOFT West. “It is thrilling that so many people are excited about the arrival of Blade & Soul in the West, and we will continue to work tirelessly to make sure our amazing players have a great time in this epic game.”
After being massively successful in Korea and China, Blade & Soul got a Western release on January 19, 2016, and welcomed a surge of new players. Over the next few months, players will get regular content updates and patches to enhance their gameplay experience.
“The sheer enthusiasm – not to mention volume – of North American and European players that have jumped into Blade & Soul since launch has been tremendous,” said John Burns, Senior Vice President of Publishing at NCSOFT West. “Blade & Soul is one of the most exciting games for Western players in 2016.”
