South Korean developer NCSoft have announced that they are developing a spin-off from MMORPG Blade and Soul, which will combine the essence of a collectable card game (CCG) and real-time strategy (RTS) genres.
NCSoft are largely known for their work on popular MMOs such as Guild Wars and City of Heroes. They are now venturing into the virtual reality (VR) market with Blade and Soul: Table Arena.
The game will be set in the same universe as the main Blade and Soul universe and gameplay will feature characters and settings from the MMO.
Use of the Oculus Touch controller means the player can use gesture control to summon creatures and units and choose a strategy. The player also has a ‘lab’ area which is used to customise and upgrade your units before taking them into a match
You can find the GDC launch trailer below. VRFocus will keep you updated with more new from GDC over the coming week.
