Blade and Soul Founder's Pack Now Available
Founder's packs are now available for purchase for NCSoft's Blade & Soul. This Korean MMORPG set to be released in North America in early 2016.
In Blade & Soul, gamers will embark on a journey to avenge their fallen master and fellow students, and to protect the world from the forces of the Dark Realm.
Combining martial arts and mythology, this revenge-driven game allows gamers to choose from four races and seven classes for unique character customization.
In the three founder's packs that are now available for purchase, gamers will have access to exclusive content and membership benefits. Gamers will not, however, be required to purchase a founder's pack in order to play Blade & Soul when it is released in 2016.
The three founder's packs that are available are:
- The Initiate Pack
- The Disciple Pack
- The Master Pack
The Initiate Pack
Will retail for $24.99 and includes access to all closed beta tests this fall, a three-day head start, two character titles, 20,800 premium points, and access to level two benefits. Buyers of this pack will receive the character titles of "Founder" and "Pursuer of the Wind."
The Disciple Pack
Can be purchased for $74.99 and includes access to all closed beta tests this fall, a three-day head start, three character titles, and 34,300 premium points, plus immediate access to level three benefits. In addition, gamers will receive a 30-day premium membership, one name reservation slot, one basic booster pack, one character alteration voucher, two extra character slots, and 2,400 NCoin. Character titles included in this pack are "Founder", "Pursuer of the Wind", and "Defender of the Ancestors".
The Master Pack
Priced at $124.99 and includes access to all closed beta tests this fall, a three-day head start, four character titles, and 48,800 premium points, plus immediate access to level four benefits.

This pack also contains a unique head accessory, a unique weapon skin, and unique costumes. Character titles included in this pack are "Founder", "Pursuer of the Wind", "Defender of the Ancestors", and "Master of the Golden Path".
For each of the packs, gamers will have the opportunity to be invited to two technical alpha tests.
Blade & Soul's founder's packs will only be available for purchase through the Blade & Soul online order page here. Founder's packs may be purchased using a credit card or PayPal.
For those who cannot wait until the official release date for the game, the three-day head start seems like a good deal. Plus, if you get the Initiator Pack, you get the core benefits without spending too much money.
