Bless Source has got its mitts on a new English language Bless Online trailer promising the game’s “coming 2017 with a completely overhauled action combat system,” though it’s decidedly low-rez and we’re not entirely clear on its provenance just yet.
The vague and distant date won’t surprise anyone: Back in September, Aeria admitted that it had postponed announcing betas and the launch “because the project is bigger than expected and the game needs a couple of tweaks to be able to penetrate the western MMO market and to have a stable and sustainable future in there.” At the time, the studio also pinpointed the combat system as needing a major rework for tab-targeting: “The combat system as of now feels unresponsive and the action combat is not on par with current generation action MMORPGs.”
Across the pond, South Korea’s Bless was updated with The Blazing Fire patch earlier this month; a bit closer to home but still a language-gap away, Russia’s Bless open beta began this past weekend.
The Russian version of Bless Online has just ended its closed beta last weekend, NA/EU players can only casting envious glances at the Russian players. Good news came that an impressive new English-language trailer has been released, according to Bless Source Facebook, Bless Online will be coming 2017 with a completely overhauled action combat system. Well, it’s not an official announcement by Aeria Games, but it surely shows us the comfort we seek.
Dating back to this September, Aeria Games has announced the delay for Bless Online’s tests and release because “the project is bigger than expected and the game needs a couple of tweaks to be able to penetrate the western MMO market and to have a stable and sustainable future in there.” At the time, the studio also pinpointed the combat system as needing a major rework for tab-targeting.
As far as we know, the combat of Bless Online isn’t special, as the game was originally a classical point & click and tab target game with only certain classes offering non-targeting combat, so “a completely overhauled action combat system” said Bless Source is really worth looking forward to. Even though we always criticize the NA/EU publisher Aeria Games, this medieval fantasy MMORPG is of great charm that we cannot help the desire to see it soon.
