Naraka Lame pointe is an upcoming battle royale influenced by Chinese Wuxia movies, and we release date, the price, and more. Melee combat fans will find plenty to love about Naraka when it launches later this year, though those expecting another free entry into the popular genre should check their expectations. There's quite a bit to know about Naraka Bladepoint, and this guide will walk you through all the important details.



What is the release date of Naraka Bladepoint?

Developer 24 Entertainment and publisher NetEase revealed Naraka's release date during E3 in a flashy new trailer and developer preview. Naraka Bladepoint is released on August 12, 2022. We don't yet know the exact release times, or whether the release will be regional or global. Once we know more, we will update this guide.

What platforms will Naraka Bladepoint be released on?

Naraka Bladepoint will be launched exclusively on PC upon release, and it will be available on both Steam and the Epic Games store. The game will eventually come to console; 24 Entertainment is currently focused on the launch of the PC and is devoting all of its resources to its smooth running. Once we learn of a console launch, we will share that information.

PC will be our first platform. For console, yes, one day not too far

Will the game be free?

No, Naraka Bladepoint will have a single cost.


What is the price of Naraka Bladepoint?

Naraka Bladepoint Base Edition will be 19,99 $. Two other editions are also available for purchase: the $34,99 Deluxe Edition et $49.99 Ultimate Edition. The game has no subscription, so you only need to buy Naraka Bladepoint once to play as much as you want.

What do I get in the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of Naraka Bladepoint?

The Naraka Bladepoint Ultimate Edition will come with three exclusive legendary quality skins: a Matari outfit, a spear skin, and a grappling hook skin. It will also contain a digital soundtrack, digital art booklet, and 10 Tide Crates (more on those in a bit). The Deluxe Edition will only contain the Spear Skin and 10 Tidal Crates. Both editions come with the base game.

Are there any pre-order bonuses?

Of course there are! Anyone who pre-orders a Naraka Bladepoint edition will unlock the new hero, Yoto Hime, when it launches alongside the game. Anyone who pre-orders Naraka will also earn an exclusive Tarka Ji outfit, 50000 Taes (the in-game currency), and 30000 Gold (the premium paid currency) as a pre-order bonus.

Naraka at-il's microtransactions.

Yes Yes. Naraka has a premium currency (gold) that you can buy with real money, and there will be loot boxes (thus the 10 Tidal Crates in the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of the game). We don't know the exact price of gold yet, but I would expect it to be priced the same as other premium currencies in other battle royales.



As for loot boxes, we assume that players will use gold to buy them. We got to see an early iteration of the loot boxes during the April playtest, and they only contained cosmetics. Thing is, all of Naraka's cosmetics can be purchased with Taes (the game's free currency) or gold, so players don't have to mess with loot boxes to get the cosmetics. they wish.

Although not in the final beta, there was a battle pass system in the April playtest. We're not sure if this pass will return at launch, but don't be surprised if it does. All of this may change before launch, so we'll be sure to update this guide once we know more.

How many characters will be available in Naraka Bladepoint at launch?

There will be Sept characters available to play at launch in Naraka. Six of them will be free for anyone who purchased the game, while the seventh (Yoto Hime) can only be unlocked by purchasing it outright or pre-ordering. We don't know how much Yoto Hime and other future characters will cost. Once we know more, we will update this guide.

How many game modes does the game have?

Naraka Bladepoint has a standard battle royale mode (The Herald's Trial) and a free deathmatch mode (The Bloodbath). The Herald's Trial has both a solo and trio queue and supports up to 60 players. Naraka only uses ranked matchmaking, and lower ranked Herald Trials matches are filled with bots. Bloodbath is a much smaller free-for-all deathmatch and is unlocked after reaching account level 5. Additionally, game modes will likely come to Naraka, but these are the only two currently available.


What weapons are available in Naraka Bladepoint?

There are four melee weapons (Longsword, katana, greatsword and spear) and seven ranged weapons (Repeating Crossbow, Musket, Cannon, Pistol, Bow, Swarm, and Flamethrower) in Naraka from the final beta. At launch on Chain saw will be added as a fifth melee weapon.

Is the game fun?

I think so. I'm not normally a Battle Royale fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Naraka Bladepoint. It's not perfect, but I'll continue to keep an eye on it before launch.

Naraka Lame pointe will launch on August 12, 2022 on PC via Steam and Epic. Be sure to check out the full E3 presentation for the game below.
