Bandai Namco Announces Combo-Driven Console MMORPG “Bless Unleashed”, Xbox One Release Date In 2019
During Gamescom 2018, Bandai Namco revealed a new upcoming MMORPG that is set to release in 2019 for Xbox One called Bless Unleashed. Not to be confused with Neowiz’s recently launched PC MMORPG Bless Online which runs on the Unreal Engine 3, Bless Unleashed will utilize the more stable Unreal Engine 4. While the two games are unique, they share the same IP. They will share many aspects like world, environmental themes, lore and creatures.
Bless Unleashed will feature a combo-driven combat, a vibrant persistent world, player customization, co-op modes and competitive PvP. Players will be able to choose from five character classes.
“Bless Unleashed is a game that takes the gameplay depth and community of an MMORPG and sets itself apart to create a new console RPG experience featuring fast-paced combat and beautifully rendered graphics”.
– Joon Hwang, Sr. Director, Online Publishing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc.
The game is being developed by Round 8 Studio, a subsidiary of Neowiz. This means that a completely different team to those in charge of the development of Bless Online will be making Bless Unleashed. For more information, visit the FAQ on the official Bless Online site.
