Bandai Namco Announces its First MMORPG
We here at XBA didn’t think that Bandai Namco could make any more games, but yet they go and prove us wrong as they have recently announced their first MMORPG called Bless. What is even more surprising, is that that game has only been announced for the Xbox One platform.
Developed by Round 8 Studio of NEOWIZ, players will dive into an epic multiplayer journey across a vibrant persistent world where gods and mythical beasts exist. The game takes place in an untamed world with a rich backstory created with hardcore MMO gamers in mind. With deep combo-driven mechanics, player customization and cooperative (PvE) and competitive (PvP) multiplayer, there is an endless amount of content and gameplay possibilities to keep players engaged.
Bless is said to utilize the Unreal Engine 4, bringing unparalleled visuals to a fully realized fantasy world, offering what Bandai Namco says is one of the most stunning MMORPGs produced on a console platform. Players can enter an open persistent world where mythical beasts roam the land with integrated players-vs-player (PVP) mode. Five classic fantasy classes will be available for players to choose, from an arcane-wielding Mage to a bloodthirsty Berserker.
The game is slated to release sometime in 2019, but rumour has it that a demo will be available to check out at PAX West.
