Equipped with greatswords, katanas, bows and arrows — and a healthy dose of fear — thousands of players made their way to the vast Morus Island for a first look at NARAKA: BLADEPOINT.
In the video below, experience the reactions of players as some big multi-kills are registered, brutally, in a battle royale, redefined. Highlights include spectacular use of the bow and arrow, one player transforming into a huge Vajra warrior and dispatching several opponents who got too close; and the ever-satisfying refrain of swords clashing as players engage in the parry and thrust of close-quarters combat.
Servers opened from November 3 until November 9 and players were given the choice of a solo or team adventure. 24 Entertainment also coordinated a series of mini-tournaments via the game’s Discord channel; where victorious players were granted special titles and even some mysterious real-life rewards.
