Blade & Soul is a Korean MMORPG that separates itself from the pack. Most Korean MMORPG titles will focus heavily on grinding, forcing you to spend hours improving. This game goes more in the direction of other MMORPGs while keeping the style and design popular with the Korean ones. You get a massive world with stunning visuals, numerous options, and stories and quests. It is engaging and entertaining on every level. Its popularity has already jumped up high with the Korean market, and it continues to attract players and attention. It is one of those MMORPGs that any fan of the genre needs to play.

Like most other MMORPG titles, Blade & Soul gives you a massive world to explore. It is not just a small area with a few repetitive tasks; it is a universe built and designed to provide a full exploration experience. You can travel, meet new people, improve, and build upon your experience in nearly endless ways. It is a brand new world.


The graphics are what make this game captivating from the start. It has some great graphics, especially considering this is a free MMORPG. Its graphics are what you would expect for a large MMORPG of its type, with an Eastern-Asian style accompanying it. It is beautiful in every way.

Getting into the game, you can make your character one of four races. These races each have their own defining appearance and characteristics, making it possible to choose one that fits your aesthetic and play style preferences. 3 of the 4 races provide both male and female options, with the 4th only having a female one. All of them look good, play well, and have advantages that will make them exciting to use.


You can choose a class, as well. There are seven total, all focused on martial arts. You will use your class to battle and survive, and to go deeper into this massive world. As with the races, each class has its own play style and advantages that you can put to use. Choose based on how you prefer to play.

Leveling up, exploring, fighting, and expanding on this world are only part of the enjoyment. Blade & Soul does have a large customization option. You can customize your character fully from the start, making him or her unique. Stand out from the moment you play. During the game, you can collect clothing that you can wear. There are no style points, but it certainly does feel and look better.
