Naraka: Bladepoint is officially coming to consoles, and we have PS5 gameplay from the the melee-focused battle royale to show off.
With the game set to launch on PC on August 12, developer 24 Entertainment has confirmed that it is working on multiple console versions, which will be released “soon.” We still don’t have a more concrete release date, or a definitive list of which platforms will see the game.
We know for sure that PS5 will be on that list, however, and we got our first look at the game running on the new-gen machine, below:
Naraka: Bladepoint is a 60-player spin on the battle royale genre, which builds grappling hooks and a deep melee combat system into the mix. We called it “extremely promising”, and said that it feels “almost like a battle royale version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” in our hands-on preview.
It’s proven very popular with early players, too – an April open beta hit over 120,000 concurrent players, and the in-depth character creator also led to some very entertaining results.
