Naraka: Bladepoint has been announced for consoles with a PS5 gameplay video
60-player battle royale action game hits PC this month and consoles “soon”
Naraka: Bladepoint will be released for consoles as well as PC, it has been announced.
“Console versions coming soon,” the game’s official Twitter account posted on Thursday.
IGN has also published the first PS5 gameplay footage, which you can watch below. Other console platforms have yet to be confirmed.
Naraka: Bladepoint is set for release on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on August 12, priced at £17.99.
The 60-player battle royale action is developed by Chinese studio 24 Entertainment and published by Netease.
It promises to offer players “insane mobility powered by parkour and grappling hook, a vast arsenal of melee and ranged weapons, and a roaster of characters with powerful abilities” such as the ability to transform into a giant vajra warrior.
Announced at The Game Awards 2019, Naraka: Bladepoint was originally scheduled for release last year.
It’s billed as a close-quarters multiplayer title in which “eastern influences meet western style.”
Naraka is set in the mysterious Eastern realm of Morus and features a “boundless” movement system that allows players to climb, hang, and parkour.
Gameplay also involves an “aim-at-whatever-you-want” grappling hook and a “sophisticated yet beginner-friendly” combat system involving block and parry mechanics, according to its developer.
Naraka: Bladepoint is the first Unity engine game to make use of Nvidia‘s DLSS graphics technology.
