After launching on August 6, Bless Unleashed has already pulled in over 1 million installs on PC. It has also become one of the most popular titles on Steam, which concurrent player counts often peaking over 75,000.
Bless Unleashed is a massive rework of Bless Online – an MMORPG first launched in 2018. The new MMO differs from its predecessor in a few drastic ways, and the developer says the "core gameplay is entirely new," meaning you'll need to learn a fast-paced combat system that's dependent on combos, dodging, and blocking incoming attacks. Bless Unleashed takes place in the same universe as Bless Online, but the team wants it to feel like a "totally brand-new experience."
"Built on the Unreal 4 Engine, Bless Unleashed also features unrivaled graphics for the genre that really immerse players in the vibrant landscapes," Neowitz and Round8 Studio said of their MMO. "Deeply rewarding combo-driven gameplay mechanics and a persistent progression system also add to the complexity of the game."
Reviews on Steam for the title are currently mixed, with some players calling out Bless Unleashed as a "Pay 2 Win" title. Others, meanwhile, are enjoying the fast-paced combat and high-end graphics. If you're looking to scratch that ever-present MMO itch, you might as well give it a free install and see if it's your cup of tea.
Bless Unleashed is available for free on Steam, although you can also find it on Xbox and PlayStation.
