Today I’d like to talk to you all about an upcoming Chinese MMORPG called Moonlight Blade.
Now, Moonlight Blade was officially released in China in 2016, and as such us folk in the West held out a little hope that one day it’d reach our shores.
As of a couple days ago, that hope that we were clinging on to came to pass and Tencent, the company behind Moonlight Blade graced us with the news we were all hoping for: Moonlight Blade is coming to the West!
At long last we will get to experience one of the most amazing looking Wuxia themed MMORPGs currently on the market!
Now, both Wiggy and I have personal experience with Moonlight Blade, having played some of the game in Chinese a couple months ago.
After playing for a few hours, we were completely immersed in the beautiful scenery, graphics, and gameplay the game had to offer – even though we were unable to grasp the overall story.
Being able to finally experience the story and understand our skills/gear a little better is going to make the game all the more enjoyable for us, as both Wiggy and I are huge fans of Martial Arts MMOs.
The information we have been given by Tencent so far is that there are plans to port the game over to both North America and Europe in the future, along with a large new update featuring new content, new classes, graphical tweaks and improvements, and lastly a naval battle system.
In the video above, you can see the trailer and content being released with the update, that will hopefully be included in the Western release.
Moonlight Blade is still in Open Beta in China, but has since been praised for its beautiful environments, combat animation, and dedication to the Wuxia theme and style.
If you’re interested in trying Moonlight Blade out in its current Chinese only language and no English translation, you can follow this guide right here over at LonLife that got us right into the game!
In the meantime, we plan on pushing out multiple new videos showcasing Moonlight Blade and the features it has to offer in Chinese until the English version becomes available.
