Blade & Soul®: State of the Game
What’s the Latest News for Blade & Soul?
As we approach the start of a new year, we wanted to bring you up to speed with what's been happening with Blade & Soul®, and what happens next.

The game is already in its finished form in the original Korean-language version, but bringing Blade & Soul to the West involves more than simply translating the text and recording new dialogue. Gameplay styles differ greatly in different cultures, meaning that what players in Korea consider fun and balanced might not be as well-received in Europe and America. Addressing considerations like these takes time and NCSOFT® is committed to doing it right--without sacrificing any of the elements that make Blade & Soul as popular as it continues to be in Korea.

The development team at NCSOFT West has been working closely with Team Bloodlust to ensure that we deliver the best, most faithful version of Blade & Soul to Western gamers. We are making progress and plan to reveal more details about the game in the coming year.

In the meantime, our goal is to build excitement for Blade & Soul, by introducing Western audiences to the game's beautiful graphics, compelling story and innovative gameplay. Then, when the time is right, we will release the sorts of details you have been waiting so patiently for.

Thanks for bearing with us, and stay tuned!

Ok, they seem to be implying that they're going to change something about it for the west.

NCSoft, what are you changing? I'm a little concerned. Just a little.

They already said they won't be censoring the game.



I think they are just talking about balancing the difficulty. I doubt they are going to be seriously altering the gameplay and they haven't shown any signs (so far) of altering the story...So I can't think of anything else they'd change.

Whoa what really srs? oh snap~ also I dont think they are gonna make GODLIKE crazy changes tbh
imo unlike Tera, I honestly cant picture how Blade and soul would be fully westernized, given the eastern image of the game.

I just hope we get all of KRs outfits >_>

I'm pretty sure they are paying close attention to fans, but they also have to consider how to make a game profitable in a different setting. Profitability is dependent on whether or not a game is fun. If a game's many aesthetics is hindered by confusion and low quality, you can bet it's not going to be fun; and, ultimately, they would not make a profit.

I have no idea from where are they going to take their ''marvelous ideas'' regarding to what exactly they mean with this statement: ''Gameplay styles differ greatly in different cultures, meaning that what players in Korea consider fun and balanced might not be as well-received in Europe and America'' whats their source and pool.

But they also comment ''In the meantime, our goal is to build excitement for Blade & Soul, by introducing Western audiences to the game's beautiful graphics, compelling story and innovative gameplay''

Irony

Doesnt make sense at all, doomsday could be coming...

If they change anything then on Beta stages will be large wave of critics... I hope they wake up before west release ;p

I'm sorry to say but this sounds very bad. If they're going to mess with the gameplay it could be very bad. Be ready for slower movements, easier content, etc

I want to be proven wrong but why change anything? Wasn't B&S supposed to not be like any Western mmorpg? Why "westernize" it when they could get that experience playing WoW?

The difficulty of the content is a huge deal to me, they better not ruin it

By "westernize" they probably mean things like work on class balance, improve drop rates (which in many Asian MMO's tend to be very low), make sure that you can quest your way to the level cap and not be forced to grind out levels, etc, rather than changing core gameplay mechanics or anything else. So I wouldn't be overly worried about things, at least until they go into details.

hopefully they dont touch gameplay, as for difficulty who wants to play a game where you can hurp durp smash your way through everything? if they do ANYTHING i hope its just a dub or somthing, but wont know till they give more info.

This is pretty scary. :<

"Gameplay styles differ greatly in different cultures" -- The word 'greatly' seems terrifying to me; I understand they're kind of different but it's not like the east and west are different species. Eh..? D;

It's just tough to see the game doing so well over there, and then have English players getting on the KR servers and also raving about how great it is. -- Many koreans love it, and I feel as though the majority of NA/UK people that get into the KR servers and play also love it.

The fact that they plan to change something that obviously some parts of both cultures already enjoy worries me.

I am not an expert; I just want to share my concern -- if just to remind them to be extra cautious about making changes in the game. Posted Image

Like I say... there is nothing new here from what I can see. This is just filler news to make up for them not posting for a while lol.
