The upcoming contents for Blade & Soul CN in the next half of 2015 has been revealed during the PVP tournament finals on 5th July 2015. This includes pet system, wings, leader board for PVP & PVE etc.
3 pets will be released in Aug 2015: Amaterasu, Flame Emperor & Penguin. Amaterasu & Flame Emperor are the cute version of the original boss in the game.
In the future, more pets will be released, including some humonoid ones. Players will be allowed to design new pets as well. Pets will grant additional stats and help players in battle.
Pets can be obtained from dungeons, achievement or purchased (from cash shop?). Crafting profession system will be enhanced in the future, to enable crafting of pets and wings.
Wings will be added to the game in the next half of the year as well.
Wings can be obtained from crafting profession and dungeons. When asked if wings will grants stats, the developer responded that they will make consider about this (for balancing reason), and maybe only add non-combat related stats to the wings. The wings are introduced mainly for cosmetic purpose.
The developer plans to extend the concept of Mushin Tower to hundreds of floors or stages, with tough opponents awaiting to challenge players. Unlike Mushin Tower, the boss at each floor is random and unpredictable.
Leader Board for PVE & PVP
A new leader board system indicating PVP ranking, instance clear time, etc will be added to the game.
To aid new player to the game, apprentice system will be introduced very soon, to encourage veteran players to mentor new players.
A new class (9th) will be introduced within 6 - 12 months time.
Blade & Soul Mobile
NCSoft will be releasing the mobile version of Blade & Soul later this year as well. Chibi-version familiar characters such as Jin Seyeon & Pohwaran will be appearing in the card-based game.
