Getting Started with Naraka: Bladepoint, the Mythical Action Battle Royale

Summary

  • Sophisticated rock-scissor-paper system offers in-depth gameplay
  • Use the Bloodsport and other game modes to hone your fight skills
  • Xbox players will find almost unparalleled customisation in the game
  • Naraka: Bladepoint will be available for Xbox Game Pass on June 23

Naraka: Bladepoint arrived on PC last August amid a hail of blades, kick-ass moves and luxuriant ponytails. It instantly gripped PC gamers with its style, swagger and sophisticated fight engine; with the game going on to sell 10 million copies in less than a year! 

Coming to console for the first time and optimised for Xbox Series X and S, Naraka: Bladepoint is putting itself out there as the best melee-based battle royale there is — so it better have a solid fight game. Naraka employs a classic rock-paper-scissors style system, where charged attacks beat normal attacks, parries beat charged attacks, and normal attacks beat parries. Practice makes perfect and new players should definitely consider perfecting parries. Successfully executed parries enable you to disarm opponents and launch into relentless counterattacks, leaving your opponent’s health and armour in tatters. 

Landing a decent charged attack is almost as damaging, especially with heavier weaponry. In Naraka: Bladepoint fights can turn on a single mistake, so concentration on these core fighting disciplines are absolutely key to taking enemies down and ensuring your survival.  

Naraka: Bladepoint is also blessed with some very creative game modes, where new players can hone their skills. Bloodsport is one of the most popular and allows players to choose a preferred hero and weapons before the first round begins, they’ll need to stick with that loadout until the Bloodsport finals. Other modes players will want to check out are Omni’s Nightmare, Bloodbath and BOT mode.

A unique 60-player battle royale, Naraka: Bladepoint sees your character ​​engage in an exhilarating combination of melee action and parkour moves; so it’s important to ensure your character looks fantastic while going through all the motions. Fortunately, Naraka offers a huge array of character customisation and, while deep character customisation is a staple feature of most battle royales, this game goes above and beyond.

To coincide with the launch of Naraka: Bladepoint on Xbox Series X|S, players will also get to experience a brand new weapon: The Dual Blades. These devastating weapons can deliver striking blows to opponents, whilst also offering the ability to charge your attacks for maximum effect.

Last, but certainly not least, Naraka: Bladepoint will see the launch of a brand new Campaign mode, coming later this summer!

Arriving on current-gen consoles, Naraka: Bladepoint offers an exciting new experience for Xbox Series X|S owners, and with its addition into Xbox Game Pass on June 23, there’s never been a better time to battle it out with other players across the world. Additionally, Xbox One players can also look forward to the game coming to consoles later this year.
