NCSOFT has confirmed that Blade & Soul has now surpassed 2 million players in the US and Europe a mere three weeks since release.

Additionally, the developer has released its first content update for Blade & Soul titled Rising Waters. The update features three new pieces of challenging max-level PvE content that players can access after defeating Vice Admiral Poharan.


New content included in the update includes Bloodshade/Nightshade Harbor, Mushin’s Tower Floors 1-7, and five new Hongmoon Levels. Available as a 6 or 4 player Heroic dungeon, Bloodshade Harbor and its 24-player version, Nightshade Harbor, offers players new challenges against the evil Blackram pirates and Poharan’s boss, Admiral Hae Mujin.

Players can also take on the Mushin’s Tower: a single player Heroic dungeon which features more challenges and greater rewards. And finally, the new Hongmoon Levels will allow players to continue to gain experience beyond level 45, unlocking additional skill points to increase your character’s strength in combat.
