A word from the Author
Blade and Soul is an MMORPG game developed for martial arts lovers. The game is free to download and play but involves real cash for in-shop acquisitions to increase the character’s skills. Blade and Soul has got some really good animations, scenarios, and cinematics. The first 45 levels are relatively easy to achieve but then it ramps up and requires cash for purchases to be made. Another way to level up the character early is by adopting the story quest and side quest together.
Glitches can be seen when battling around with multiple enemies simultaneously, but overall, the gaming experience is fine. The prices of in-store app purchases have increased 10x as compared to the prices when the game was officially launched but that is optional for the player to either go for it or not.
If you’re an anime lover then Blade and soul is a game for you.
