Those anticipating the arrival of Bless Online in the west are still coming to grips with the news that the game will be published by Aeria Games in North America and Europe. To mollify any concerns, the Aeria team assigned to Bless took to Reddit yesterday for an AMA about the incoming title.
Topics in the discussion included questions over pay-to-win, server strategies, comparisons to Trion Worlds’ handling of ArcheAge, censorship, localization differences, possible PvE worlds, the business model, and the starting roster of classes and races. However, if you are looking for concrete answers to most of these, you will come away disappointed. Many of these questions were met with variations on, “We don’t know as we just started working on the game. We’ll look into that and get back to you later.”
Alpha was announced to be starting “soon,” with beta coming months down the road.
