Wildly popular Korean fantasy MMO Blade & Soul finally launches in North America and Europe tomorrow. Check out the thrilling opening sequence players in the early head start are experiencing over and over right now.
Rather than speak over the action, I went ahead and recorded the opening sequence of the game without commentary, as that’s how I prefer to watch my fantasy martial arts epics.
The game opens with your created character being hauled out of the ocean by a fisherman beneath what looks like a burning mountain fortress. Using the cinematic device everyone seems to have fallen in love with over the past decade, we then flash back to the day before in order to discover how we got there.
As the fisherman tries to wake us Buy Blade And Soul Gold we flash to the previous day, where a perky friend is trying to rouse us from bed for training.
What follows is a meet-and-greet/tutorial with the disciples and masters of the Hongmoon Clan of martial arts. You’re a promising young student who’s about to have a very big day. You’ll meet your bestest friends forever, Jinyung and Gilhong.
In the end only Master Hong and the player character are left standing. The bad people have come for a mystical blade possessed by Master Hong, and Traitor McTraitorson has been slowly poisoning his teacher in order to sap his strength.
Despite a last-minute attempt to destroy his foes by transforming into puppy Akuma, Master Hong ultimate trades his life for yours. As his body disappears you charge at the villains, only to be knocked off of the fortress into the water, where you drown.
And so your character is rescued from a watery death. When they wake up they find themselves in a small village beset by raiders. Raiders than can only be defeated byBuy BNS Gold completing a series of quests that lead you to the next series of quests. Repeat that for a while. You get the picture.
I’ll be playing more Blade & Soul as NCsoft launches the free-to-play MMO, but so far my favourite bit is the opening sequence. Except for the dead puppies
