Blade And Soul Confirmed For Xbox 360/PS3 In 2011

Blend Games writes "One of the most highly talked about MMORPGs is the upcoming real-time combat, visually impressive, Blade and Soul...and the CEO of NCSoft, Kim Taek Jin, dropped a pretty big news bomb in a conference call, revealing that the game is in development for current generation consoles and currently on schedule for a 2011 release." (Blade & Soul, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Doesn't NCsoft have a deal with sony?
Isn't NCSoft suppose to be developing a game for the PS3?
Godmars290  +   1623d ago
Nothing ever came of that the same nothing came of the Namco deal.

hey the company is 3rd party so it should be multiplat
Tetsuryu  +   1623d ago
If I recall correctly, the deal was called off.

Indeed NCSoft has a deal with Sony and the article does NOT say 360 just the title. I think this is taken out of context I think we should wait for official word. NCSoft are designing 2 MMORPG's for the PS3 exclusively and this could be one. Guild wars 2 is the other (hopefully :p).

Apparently, the deal is canceled since months.

Funny how they say this is one of the most talked about MMO's because I have never heard of it.

The only real MMO's that I hear people talking about that are not yet out are Blizzards next MMO and Final Fantasy XIV.

This game could be a huge turd, but if anything the art style is nothing short of amazing, just watch this video!


they have some serious talent over there.

yeah the deal fell through..

sony didnt push hard enough and ncsoft was doing their own thing really dismissing the consoles for a while..

shame, either way i've been looking forward to this title. might go check out the pc version.

This one looked the best when they showed it a while ago, so will take a look when it is released.

I'm more interested in that Kingdom Underfire 2... this one looks too much like a power rangers type of MMO while being ninjas. Watch the youtube vids.

@Sangria look at the articles source you listed. they updated the article at the request of NCsoft. The title in development was called "MOG" and very little to no info was revealed about this game. That is the game that was canceled.

I was going to buy a high end PC just for this game but I could just wait now. This game looks awesome.
Karum  +   1623d ago
MMO's always look awesome prior to release. It's only when they are actually released and have been up and running for a while is when you'll know if it is actually any good.

I've lost count of the number of MMO's that I've played that looked awesome but were a disappointment with Aion being the most recent.

My real life will end with the first login :D

I simply love Hyung-Tae Kim's art direction. The way he draws women is simply amazing!!!! Can't wait!
Pheonix03  +   1623d ago
Very Nice!
I have never played an MMO but ever since the demo video last year, I've been interested in Blade & Soul because of the awesome looking combat. Can't Wait!

Natsu X FairyTail  +   1623d ago
I'm not a MMO type of guy but this one looks Good and I'm an Anime guy so this is mos def in my radar for 2011.
BannedForNineYears  +   1623d ago
Nice picture. =D
slyrunner  +   1623d ago
This looks like a cheap combo mmo
meaning, that there are some amazing combos, yet when they start, there is gooing to be some problems trying to strike back. and im kindof worried about the gameplay on consoles, i wonder how theyare going to set up the control scheme, especially since the formula follows a series of hot keys "commands" on how the player executes his moves. and since most players dont have a keyboard for there console, how will we follow such combat in difficult times when hotkeys aren't in place. will they force us in some way or how, to buy a keyboard, or how will this work?
Swiftfox  +   1623d ago
That's under the assumtion that the game will have loads of abilities standard to each class/race of character following the Blizzards World of Warcraft formula.

Unfortunately, we don't know enough about the game. I've only seen trailers and no actual gameplay with an actual HUD and the Beta isn't supposed to start for Korea until spring I believe. However, I suspect something a bit different from the ability riddled Aion/World of Warcraft styles and some more ability lite, such as Kingdom Hearts if it is truly full-active.

Kingdom Hearts used only a handful of abilities controlled in a pop-down submenu, however you could "hotkey" specific abilities to the face buttons to use in pinches. Perhaps NcSoft will adopt and improve this method.
...I been waiting on this 4ever
Still I cant call this official..........
galmi  +   1623d ago
Cant wait, gonna get the console and pc versions, nice one ncsoft
Midgard228  +   1623d ago
awesome, now to debate whether to get it on ps3 or my comp.....hmmm if me and gf get it on comp we can play in same house, but cnt if we get it on ps3.....tho then we wudnt have to worry about her running on max settings without slowdown......hmmmm choices....dammit!!!! i guess if its played with a keyboard still will be what determines it lol
Ashriel  +   1623d ago
