Blade & Soul‘s PC version is finally upgrading its graphics and converting to Unreal Engine 4! The highly rated action combat MMORPG has been played publicly on the dated Unreal Engine 3 for over seven years while its more recent mobile and console counterparts are being developed in Unreal Engine 4 already. Here is to hoping that NCSoft will take full advantage of UE4’s graphical additions and cinematic options.
It’s hardly been a week since NCSoft went live with the last content update for Blade & Soul, and now they’ve announced that the game will receive a new major content update called Eternal Night on May 2, 2018. The update will include the first half of the Nightfall Sanctuary raid, the Sandstorm Temple dungeon and new legendary soul shield and gear to be discovered. Players will also be able to continue the Emperor’s Tomb storyline in this update.
We’ve combed through all of the MMORPGs that has shown up in the past two decades and chosen the most eye-pleasing games with the best graphics and beautifully rendered assets to offer.
We have and will only add MMORPGs that are already or nearly playable in the West to this list. However, keep in mind that this is an on-going list, so upcoming MMOs that would otherwise be on this list like Ashes of Creation, Peria Chronicles, Moonlight Blade or any other games that deserve to be listed will be added when they are fully released in English.
We are listing these games based on release dates in descending order.
PvP (player versus player) has always been a highly criticized criteria when it comes to MMORPGs. Some desire harsh-punishing and ‘hardcore’ systems that let you take the loot of your fallen enemies, some desire optional or casual instanced-based arenas, while others would rather walk a different path altogether. Here is a list of MMORPGs from the current decade with impressive PvP.
We are listing these games based on release dates in descending order. This is an on-going list that will be updated every time a new impressive PvP centric MMORPG reveals itself.
Blade and Soul is set for another update, “Blade and Soul: Fire and Blood” on March 21st. There is a decent amount of content in this update such as two new dungeons, a new raid and the addition of the Lyn as the available race for the Gunslinger class. It’s great to see the Lyn race finally able to play with guns. Many in the Blade and Soul community have requested it for some time even before the release of the “Rise of the Gunslinger” update back in September of last year.
