Those of you waiting for Aeria Games to bring Bless Online to the West are going to have to wait a bit longer, as “the project is bigger than expected” and the companies involved will need more time to localize it. The news comes via a forum post made by Aeria employee Carsomyr on the Bless Source forums.
According to Carsomyr, Aeria and Neowiz had issues finalizing a testing schedule, much less a launch date, due to the size of the project. Aeria believes that more time will be necessary in order to deliver “a more polished and complete product.” Two changes that will be made to improve the state of the game are as follows.
Ingame performance: Neowiz Bless Studio is putting the most effort and planning to improve the performance aspects of massive battle contents such as Siege of Castra, Capital War, Raid etc. to provide the players the best gaming environment.
Combat System: As many of you might know, the combat system as of now feels unresponsive and the action combat is not on par with current generation action MMORPGs. Neowiz will be working on both tab targeting and action combat systems to have better combat experience in both systems. In the end of the day, combat is a very important aspect of every MMO and needs to feel good to keep players entertained in combat.
More information about changes being made to the game and a finalized release date will follow as the information becomes available.
