Whether you are an active player or an esports viewer looking forward to NARAKA Fest 2022 next week, 24 Entertainment and NetEase Games have revealed a bunch of good news for NARAKA: BLADEPOINT. There is a new hero, a new platform, a new skin, a new weapon, new content, and a crossover with the NieR series confirmed to look forward to.
Starting off, on December 22nd, the game will get the first update which will bring the game to Xbox One, release the new Tianhai legendary skin, and unlock a new hero named Feria Shen. Shen is adept in combat as a weapons master, and she’s also a famed mech rider. In the heat of battle, she can trigger her Ultimate to summon Trouble, a mech companion armed with a pair of devastating Swarm launchers, raining down fire on her enemies.
Then, in January 2023, new players can join NARAKA veterans in the game’s ever-expanding co-op PvE mode. SHOWDOWN Chapter III allows players to squad up and get ready to brave the mountainous Yushan Ruins, where you’ll fight none other than Viper Ning’s own mother. Shortly after this, in February 2023, they plan to introduce the heavy, yet powerful, Pole Staff weapon.
The biggest news of all, which doesn’t have a set release date, is the upcoming crossover with the NieR series! This upcoming collaboration with Square Enix with Yoko Taro’s twisted universe bleeds into the popular multiplayer title. During this crossover event, expect exclusive new content inspired by characters and weapons from the world of NieR.
