Bless Online’s Global Steam Version Is Shutting Down On September 9th – What’s Left For The Bless IP?
Following the recent closure notice of the Japanese version of Bless Online, developer and publisher Neowiz has officially announced that the global Steam version of the game will also be shutting down on September 8th, 2019. The closure will take place exactly one month after Bless Japan shuts down.
As we reported last week, Bless Online’s Global version on Steam has consistently performed poorly with a current average of 209 players in the last 30 days and similar numbers for the past five months.
When the global version shuts down, Bless on PC will no longer be playable in any region. The fate of the Bless IP will rely on Bandai’s Unreal Engine 4 iteration of Bless on Xbox One titled ‘Bless Unleashed‘. Bless Unleashed ran a four day closed beta testing in April 2019. No word has been given out in regards to open beta testing.
Neowiz‘s BLESS Management Team has announced that the Japanese version of BLESS will shut down on August 8th, 2019. The game lasted for nearly two years in the region since its launch on November 2nd, 2017. Member registration will be disabled on July 10th.
The developers state that they have minimized content updates to be able to focus on improving the game’s performance and gameplay. However, they conclude that further development will not bring satisfactory updates.

Players of TERA Classic will go through a new story in the same fantasy world as the original PC game. The game will have large open field areas, raid dungeons, parties, guilds, and action combat. It’s unknown if the game will have auto-play.
