Great news for the big fans of the gorgeous Asian MMOs, we already know that Black Desert is scheduled for a 2016 launch in NA, and recently Blade & Soul announced they are coming to North America as well.

One of the many females characters from “Black Desert”.

If you’re wondering about the business model “We don’t want it to be Pay-to-Win, I’ts going to be Free-to-Play” said Omeed Dariani, Diroctor of Community at NCSoft, Regarding the story “there are no black and whites” and the story is more about “righting wrongs” explained Julliane Harty, Brand Manager, your clan is wiped out and your character is left for dead by the “lovely” Jin Seo-Yeon and you’re looking for revenge.

The game will feature action combat, 4 races and 6 classes (No Healers). With features like Wind Walk (basically gliding) and Dragon Streams (jumping animations that serve as quick travel) they intend to give a fresh exploration experience on this beautiful new world.

Blade & Soul has caused a lot of controversy because of the games many sexy female characters.

Taking a stand against censorship

With American sensibilities regarding how women are portrayed in video games at an all time high,  many fans of Blade & Soul were concerned about the possibility of the game being censored “We’re not going to censor this game”, “We want to keep the original spirit, this game is beautiful  and we want to make sure people see it the way that is intended” said Omeed Dariani “That’s what is at the heart of Blade & Soul, this beautiful art style, and we don’t want to change that” added Mark Humes, Community Manager for B&S.

Since neither B&S nor Black Desert have yet been released on North America they have flown under the radar and avoided the ire of the outrage culture, but I’m sure as soon as these games start to become more relevant in America they will be targeted by the usual suspects, if you ask me, I hope the companies publishing these games NCsoft (Blade & Soul) and Daum(Black Desert) don’t take them seriously.
