Korean Unreal Engine-based MMORPG announced

Posted Image

A medieval-inspired fantasy, Bless boasts ten races, each with its own territory, across two realms, Hierapolis and Cosmopolis. The two forces are engaged in ongoing war over religious and philosophical differences.

Neowiz boasts a team of 150 staff at work on the game since 2009, which certainly shows in the slick cinematic teaser trailer below. The presser makes particular note of the game’s detailed animations, down to facial expressions and individual fingers. The game also utilises the Unreal landscape tool developed by Epic’s Korean arm.

No word on release date or territories as yet.

Wow. It definitely stands out visually with Unreal Engine 3. Also, the name of the developer (Neowiz) sounds strangely familiar. :p

Trailer looks great but I'll wait to see if that attention to detail gets applied to in-game animations / textures.

All Korean MMOs turn out to be crap for the most part.

nice!

well more MMOs from Korea which is not a surprise. but its cool they are using unreal engine, like Tera and Blade and Soul. Cryengine 3 is suppose to power Cabal 2 (and it would be free). also continent of the ninth with an in-house developed engine looks nice. so it seems finally koreans are making really good looking mmorpgs, which started with Aion. before that, i never found a nice looking mmorpg but Guild Wars.

But Bless looks nice, it would be nice to see the NA version soon, since Aion took like 10 months for that, and Tera is taking almost a year. so, it would be nice to see this game in NA/EU server soon. maybe i would play it.


wow i just read in source link "first-unreal-engine-based-mmorpg-announced" I mean... unreal engine was used even in Lineage II, unreal engine 2.5! (it would maked it UE based game xD)
and of course Tera uses UE3 and it has been even released but in korea. and Blade and soul has been around for years and years. not released but its been developed for years. D: how someone could put "first" but anyway, it looks nice.

It looks a little more polished than most Korean MMO games out there. They're collaboration with Epic Games Korea shows in the teaser trailer. I'm definitely interested and I hope they make a North American version.

If it's going to be free-to-play, then I'll give it a try. If not, forget about it.
Got more than enough f2p alternatives for my grinding need, until Guild Wars 2 is released.

On a side-note; GW2 will be awesome. But this looks promising as well to be honest!

this one looks promising, if it's f2p, then i'm going to check it out while no diablo 3 beta key, or until diablo 3 it's released

DCUO also uses the Unreal Engine 3 (same one as GoWPC and UT3, as I noted in the DCUO thread in this forum). CryEngine3 will be used by F2P title Warface (published exclusively in Asia), so it's not even a first in the MMO space.

They finally have an English site: http://bless.pmang.c...ex.nwz?lang=ENG

Also, the screenshots look amazing. I think it's the best-looking MMORPG I've ever seen.
