Blade and Soul Revolution Launches in South Korea, Catapults to #1 Spot As Highest Grossing Mobile Games

The mobile Blade and Soul spin-off Blade and Soul Revolution launched in South Korea earlier this week and quickly took the #1 spot as the highest grossing mobile game on iOS. Netmarble, the game's developer, had to expand server capacity 4 times already to accommodate the millions of users rushing to try the game.

Unlike most mobile spin-offs, Blade and Soul Revolution aims to stay true to the PC version of the game as much as possible, meaning combat will be action oriented and the game will be heavy on story-telling. The game currently only has 4 playable races and 4 classes, but more will be added in the future.

An English release is planned for global markets sometime in 2019, but no word on exactly when that's scheduled to happen, but my guess is it happens sometime during the first half of the year.
