Blade & Soul’s Shattered Empire update adds the biggest group challenge so far on April 27

Blade & Soul

NCSoft have announced the next big free update for Blade & Soul – Shattered Empire – is set to release on April 27.

Do you agree with our list of PC’s best MMORPGs?

Shattered Empire will only be playable if you’ve finished the previous expansions, as the story is told in a linear fashion.

However, if you have, your treat will be new Heroic dungeons – Cold Storage and Sogun’s Lament – which apparently provide the biggest Blade & Soul group challenge to date.

Solo players won’t be left out, though, as they’ll be able to attempt to climb floor 9-15 of Mushin’s Tower.

And if you’re looking for some PvP action, you can compete in a new 6v6 objective-based mode called Whirlwind Valley.
