Naraka Bladepoint: Open Beta Strikes in June, Release Date Lands in August

Naraka Bladepoint is nearly here with both an open beta this week and full launch just months away.

After strenuous playtesting, Naraka Bladepoint is finally on the horizon, with a release date just a couple of months away. 24 Entertainment's E3 2021 showcase unveiled new heroes and weapons coming to the battle royale, as well as its global launch of August 12 on PC.  

Watching any amount of gameplay will reveal an intense back and forth as players trying to out-skill and out-maneuver one and other. Anyone curious about this battle royale can try out its open beta, which launches in just a few days, running from June 16 to June 22.

Naraka Bladepoint is a mixture of fighting game and battle royale. Up to 60 players are able to choose from a roster of characters with varying abilities, as well as a host of unique weapons to use in an "unlimited parkour system."

24 Entertainment took the time to thank fans for their continued support of the game, which had been wishlisted on Steam by over one million players as of E3.

We had the chance to check the game out earlier this year during another closed beta session and came away impressed. Though we remain a little unsure about the game's ladder system and its monetization elements, we think there's enough here to still be very excited.

Naraka Bladepoint is a killer entry in the battle royale genre filled with novel ideas and a strong fundamental grounding. It's worth your time and then some.

I’ve got high expectations of Naraka, especially as it grows and brings in new players while maintaining current ones. If you have any love for the battle royale genre, check out Naraka the first chance you get.

Naraka Bladepoint is available to preorder now and will launch on Steam and the Epic Games Store. Stay tuned for more.
