I'm starting to miss the bots. People are starting to get the hang of this game, even in the lower ranks.
I'm enjoying it though.

Combat looks like shit during the video

Way too fast and not precise

In this video, we go over the GameSpot Review for Naraka Bladepoint which was done by Justing Clark.

Naraka Bladepoint's sharp new take on the Battle Royale formula gets off to a promising, but slightly awkward start.

If absolutely nothing else, be grateful to Naraka Bladepoint for being one of a scant few battle royale titles where getting one-shotted by someone hiding in a shrub three football fields away isn't a danger. That by itself makes it welcoming in a way the genre tends to ignore. But lurking beneath that relative ease and approachability is a shrewd game of wuxia-inspired combat that demandsfar more steelfrom its players--and we're not just talking about swords and spears.

Watched some stream and videos and read it's coming to PS5, has anyone had any hands on with it on PC? IGN gave it an 8 , minor issues with network, they mention issues with bots being a bottleneck in the fun but overall pleased with it.

Naraka: Bladepoint reviewed by Kyle Campbell on PC, also available on PlayStation 5.

Superb melee combat and gravity-defying movement make Naraka: Bladepoint a clever spin on the familiar battle royale formula.

It’s pretty great actually. Very refreshing game design and not just a typical BR shooter.

Think Apex with combined with Soul Caliber

As far as bots, you only fight them n the first few bronze levels. Once you level up a bit , you fight mostly humans.

I like the idea, get a feel for the game mechanics and the character. I might actually get this when it releases on PS5. I was interested in Hunter's Arena but the bad reviews killed it for me. I never got into BDOs BG , it seems similar.
