Naraka: Bladepoint is the latest battle royale to follow in Fortnite's footsteps, and more players are getting the opportunity to experience it - eventually. Alongside its release on PC on August 12th, a console release is in the works
The team revealed the news alongside a trailer showcasing gameplay on the PlayStation 5 (courtesy of IGN) and said it would release on consoles "soon."
As IGN noted, the Naraka beta saw over 120,000 concurrent players when it released in April, which may have prompted 24 Entertainment to expand Naraka's release on console.
24 Entertainment didn't announce a release date for Naraka on PS5 or which other systems it will release on, but the PC version launches August 12th.
Naraka: Bladepoint will Release on PS5 and Other Consoles
The official synopsis reads:
Naraka: Bladepoint offers close-range action set on the mysterious Eastern realm of Morus. The game features a boundless movement system that allows players to climb, hang, and even parkour. With an aim-at-whatever-you-want grappling hook and a sophisticated yet beginner-friendly combat system involving accessible block and parry mechanics, Naraka: Bladepoint is designed to provide a brand-new experience of melee combat and world exploration. Integrating Eastern aesthetic and philosophy, Naraka: Bladepoint presents a forsaken island of splendid landscapes as well as inexplicable enigmas.
The PC version will take advantage of NVIDIA DLSS technology, which you can check out below.
