Blade & Soul gets new 6v6 PVP mode and new dungeons in Shattered Empire update


NCSoft’s Martial Arts MMO Blade & Soul has just released it’s 2.1 update, Shattered Empire, giving players access to two new floors for Mushin’s tower plus a duo of new dungeons: Sogun’s Lament and Cold Storage. 

If Blade & Soul doesn’t tickle your pickle, here are some other best MMORPG’s on the PC. Try to say that five times fast: MMORPG.

What else, what else? Well, there’s a 6v6 PvP mode called Whirlwind Valley, a new daily challenge, a spring experience boosting event and a number of balance and item fixes.

Whirlwind Valley is an objective-based mode where “teamwork and coordination” is key for victory, but this PvP mode isn’t gear equalized, so people not in their end level gear might take a bit of a kicking.

The team have also fixed an issue where the /dance emote wasn’t working as it should be. Truly, they’re the real heroes here, allowing the players of Blade & Soul to dance again like a martial arts influenced Footloose.

You can check out the patch notes for yourself here, and see which of the numbers changed are going to buff or ruin your favourite abilities. MMO’s eh? They’re a harsh friend.
