After being teased by Geoff Keighley this week, Naraka: Bladepoint was unveiled tonight at The Game Awards in Los Angeles. Naraka: Bladepoint was developed by 24 Entertainment and released by NetEase.
“Where cold steel collides and blood dries out, Souls BLOSSOM,” Keighley tweeted on December 6 next to a red flower – presumably blood – that bloomed from a pile of swords. Ahead of The Game Awards, a Twitter account and website for Naraka: Bladepoint appeared online. “A wealth of weapons paired with grappling hooks to maneuver,” 24 Entertainment wrote on its Naraka: Bladepoint website. “Mask of the old god; absorbs blood through endless slaughter. YOU will set foot in NARAKA. “
In the trailer a lot is fought with swords. And, of course, blood is a key issue – even before Nakara: Bladepoint’s world premiere. Throughout the Twitter page, “Bloodlust is holding on to us,” tweeted 24 Entertainment on December 9th.
