It will be f2p iirc, yeah.

You might want to try C9 too. It's totally f2p in Korea.

Where did you here that it might be f2p or b2p?  Also do any of you think this could potentially make it to the PS3?

Blade and Soul, the most anticipated title from NCsoft, will launch its first closed beta test in the first half of 2010. NCsoft has announced via its financial report in last September that Blade and Soul and Guild Wars 2 will meet the public in 2011. Now Blade and Soul is scheduled to launch closed beta test earlier than Guild Wars 2.

Kim TaeJin from NCsoft said Blade and Soul has entered the final stage of development and they are speeding up its development, aiming to get it officially released in 2011. According to NCsoft, Blade and Soul will continue the closed beta test till the second half of 2010.

Meanwhile, NCsoft confirmed that the console versions of Blade and Soul and Guild Wars 2 are also under stable development. "Blade and Soul and Guild Wars 2 in the console version are under development.

And its even on the FAQ that Guild Wars 2 is (atm) only being developed for PC's.
Probably the author was taking things too far, like saying that B&S is NCSofts most anticipated MMO.

I just saw a video from this one on MMOSite and it looks interesting.  I like the graphics, but the legs seem too long.  Lots of T&A as far as I can tell.  However it is NCSoft so I don't know what to think about it.

And isn't blade and soul for the PS3 only?

I don't recall it ever being said it was going to have a console release...

PC only from what I know.

Seems like this game has easily gotten fans because of the oversized boobs/panty showing pretty sad if you ask me that games these days have to use things like that to sell good example would be bayonetta i mean the girl in that game goes like naked from what i saw in a gameplay video to use an attack. I did and hopping off walls at the end though:)

Blade and Soul to be launch during G-Star, the biggest Korea Video Games Trade Fair.

NCsoft will launch its much-anticipated massively multiplayer online role-playing game Blade & Soul at the show, while NHN will show off its newest MMORPG Tera.

Well, I'm not sure, but I think so. Because it would be rather weird to have it released all of a sudden.

Never kept up with info on this game, but I just did a quik google and apparently only 4 out of 8 classes have been revealed so far. So I guess that does indeed mean it'll be a demo.

Seems like it is a fusion of Mortal Kombat and an MMO. Since I was a fan of MK when growing up I kind of like this. I'm not a fan of the art direction in the game though.

Launch to me means release so maybe the korean version will release for the show.
It is a statical fact that half the people on the boards have a secret desire to be a cat-girl samurai.

Looks neat to me.  I'd probably try it out if it got decent to good reviews and was B2P (or F2P, though I think B2P is a better model).  I've decided I am going to avoid subscription games pretty much from now on as the sub cost is a ripoff.

... I ended up buying Magna Carta 2 for the 360, just because watching Blade & Soul videos made me want to play a Hyung-Tae Kim art game.

Even if it's only a mediocre RPG. :D

So many info from G-star 2010, feels like Gamescon for GW2, I'm following this game closely from now on. Team Bloodlust seems to be the "Korean Arena.net" :P, check out the Q&A translation courtesy of bladeandsouldojo.com

I just really, REALLY hope that if there's open-world PvP (which is pretty likely) they'll have PvE-only servers... The game looks pretty damned amazing otherwise, but mandatory PvP is a point that would kill it for me.

I wouldn't be so worried if it weren't for the hostile responses I've seen towards players that want a PvE-only option. If this is at all indicative of their target audience, I fear that's the direction they'll head and I'll be shut out. :-\

LOL, this quote cracked me up:

No one so far, save for one guy is against PvE servers.
The argument is more of a misunderstanding, some people seem to have the idea that others think PvE is the main focus while others think PvP is the main focus. Which is a pretty stupid argument, but it's all based on misunderstandings.
Otherwise everyone is A-Okay with PvE servers.

One big misunderstanding... Sheeple... *shakes head*

I really hate the Anime art style (mainly because I hate Animes) so I would never play this game even if I could.

... whatever did anime do to you?  When people say things like that I wonder if they have a tragic past involving anime killing their parents and dog. :(

Well, the graphics look nice. ...

What was this again, Boob & String? Sorry, but... As pretty as the graphics may or may not be, I watch the videos and I just can't stop giggling / laughing manically at all those people... I couldn't take this seriously if I tried...
