24 Entertainment has lifted the wraps off online multiplayer romp NARAKA: Bladepoint during The Game Awards 2019, confirming the game will launch worldwide in 2020. Platforms have yet to be announced, but it’s a safe bet to assume it’ll arrive on a PlayStation console.
Naraka: Bladepoint Unveiled
Taking place on the Eastern realm of Morus, Naraka: Bladepoint dishes out close-range action and includes a ‘boundless movement system’ that facilitates climbing, hanging, and parkour-related skills. Players come armed with a grappling hook that allows them to aim at anything they want, as well as a combat system that is both beginner-friendly and sophisticated, allowing for block & parry maneuvers.

Our teams have created something visually stunning and instantly appealing to fans of multiplayer online combat, and we can’t wait to share more details on NARAKA: BLADEPOINT in early in 2020.
