Bless Unleashed, the new MMORPG from BANDAI Namco, releases next month

We love a good MMORPG at TheSixthAxis, and BANDAI Namco’s next free-to-play offering, Bless Unleashed, is on the horizon, with it set to launch in less than a month’s time on the 12th of March.

Coming exclusively to the Xbox One family of consoles, Bless Unleashed takes players on a journey through the mysterious fantasy world of Lumios, filled, of course, with exciting dungeons populated by immense bosses that you can take your fully customisable character into.

Alongside the four races; Humans, Elves, Varg and Ippin, you can choose from five different classes, with each character then having access to a number of Blessings Skills which you can use to tailor them to your play style. Combat looks combo-heavy and action-intensive, and whether you’re playing as a Berserker, Crusader, Mage, Priest or Ranger it should stand out amongst many of the current MMORPGs where you’re simply chasing skill cooldowns.

The game boasts a deep lore built around the original battle of the gods, where chaos and order were constantly at war. Physera, the god of order, empowered by the five dragon gods, struck down Daimon, the god of chaos, and in the aftermath created laws to prevent gods from killing one another ever again, bringing order to the world.

Developed using Unreal Engine 4, Bless Unleashed looks absolutely phenomenal, and claims the title of being the first HD, 4K MMORPG to come to Xbox One. If co-op questing in a high fantasy world sounds like your sort of thing, you can pre-order a range of different Founder’s Packs in Deluxe, Exalted and Ultimate flavours. Each of them will let you get in on the action earlier than everyone else, with a maximum of 15 days available before the game’s full launch, as well as special mounts, costumes and currency, and they’re available for purchase right here.
