Blade & Soul getting closed beta just in time for Halloween

Nice art style!

Korean MMO Blade & Soul was confirmed for Western release three years ago and it’s finally coming to fruition. NCSoft has scheduled betas this year ahead of the game’s early 2016 launch. The first starts October 30. Purchasing a Founder’s Pack guarantees beta entry.

The betas start in English and move on to include French and German. The full schedule is here.

“There will be at least five beta weekends, the first two of which will focus on testing the English version of the Western release. With over 20 days of total playtime, the beta weekends will all run from Friday at 10am PDT to Monday at 10pm PDT. The extended beta weekend November 24–30 will then include all launch languages—English, French, and German, with subsequent weekends including these three languages.”
