NCSOFT and Team Bloodlust have been translating content from the other regions in which Blade & Soul is released in and they're doing it at an extremely fast pace. Blade & Soul was released to the public in North America and Europe on January 19, with additional endgame content being released not even a month later. Like a well-oiled machine, Team Bloodlust has just announced that a new update, titled Unchained, will be released on March 2. This update will include the final round of content before the level 50 expansion is localized, which contains a substantial amount of new content for players as well as a new class called Warlock.
Though the rest of the content will likely be overshadowed by the heavily demanded Warlock class being released, the remainder of this upcoming update is nothing to scoff at. For players following the main story, you'll know how things stand with the main antagonists and what is likely next for players. Unchained will unlock the eighth floor of Mushin's Tower, where Mushin himself invites the player to duel him. The floors currently released in this update have provided challenge enough for most players, with a lot of players not even coming close to beating the seventh floor, but taking on the realm's god of martial arts is certain to prove a veritable task.
Unchained will also come with the Naryu Labyrinth dungeon, a fan-favorite from servers in other regions. Naryu Labyrinth contains a "randomized, winding path" where players will not be able to rely on repetition to get them through the dungeon. Although this dungeon will change every time and offer a different experience each time a player runs through it, they will always find themselves facing off against the final bosses of the dungeons: Fujin and Raijin, the gods of wind and thunder respectively.
If you've been playing Blade & Soul since it released, you've undoubtedly heard about the Warlock class from someone who played the game on another region's server. Warlocks are intended for mid-range combat, as they are a ranged class and use spells. Unique to this class, however, is the ability to summon ghastly companions that will help the Warlock in solo and party play. With an arsenal of dark spells, debilitating incantations, and the ability to create ominous companions at will, it's no wonder why Warlocks have been so highly anticipated on both North America and Europe's servers.
Blade & Soul Unchained will release in North America and Europe on March 2.
