Naraka Bladepoint is awesome. (Another fantastic Game pass game.)

I have been playing this game non stop with friends. Loving it. After playing the game for 2days straight on game pass i ended up buying Ultimate edition for Matari Skin :)


Love the combat, characters and the music. Finally a BR game which is actually fun and made for adults.


Lobby music so good. I can listen to it all day.


So how many playing this game on xbox? Game has deep learning curve, so its not for everyone but im loving it.
 
It's been top 20 on Steam for months now. Maybe I should try it.
Get ready to get rekt on PC. PC players just way too good. Most of them Chinese and Korean try hards. They just insanely good.

Its level playing field on Xbox for me. I tried it on PC game pass as well and got wrecked but xbox it was not as bad since most people are new to game and still learning. I got few victories and getting better with every match on xbox.
 
I don't have PC gamepass and I've been wanting to buy this but then I hear/read there's a lot of cheating, I'm curious if anyone who's clocked a lot of hours can confirm.

It is insanely fun. While I wanted to buy on steam my patience of it coming to gamepass paid off.

Did you manually disable cross-play or something? Otherwise you're still playing with pc players on xbox.

The fact that I can make my female characters with large in-your-face breasts has offended me to my core and left me literally shaking so much that I cannot keep the crayon straight while writing my outrage comment on Resetera.
Now this is how you’re selling a game! Will check it out asap 👍

Alright, I'm giving this game a shot based on your suggestion. I don't know anything more about it other than it seems to feature full nudity and swordplay. I've never played a Battle Royale game so I'm expecting to come in last place every game. Wish me luck.

Steam has most try hards unless you really good at game avoid Steam version. Game pass audience relatively new.
I'm confused about how this works. Is gamepass PC version matchmaking separate from steam population? If it is I might give this a shot.

I just played the intro part. I didn’t understand the combat at all. Seems super mushy. Going to play it more because there must be hidden depth that I am just not getting with my limited play time.

No, not necessarily. It shows Xbox symbol next to player name. Im not having tough time on xbox that much. I play trios and always in a team.

But now you said that i will disable cross play.

Matari, you can't resist her :p

Yes, incredible amounts of depth.

You have to devote some time and approach it with some patience. Check beginners guide on YouTube.

The game is on steam... costs about the same as 1 month of GamePass... and if you are to play it for more than a few days, or you can't play it RIGHT NOW, you may as well buy it... because it may be gone from GP.

I'm not sure how people rationalize paying for a service like this for one or a limited amount of games.

All the games they promote are pretty old by now, I mean Far Cry 5? Total War three kingdom, etc. This is pretty far from the "day and date" window.

What are you doing? Did it look like something people were discussing in this thread? Keep this nonsense to yourself please.

Anyway, it's a really awesome game. Excellent art style, graphics, gameplay and microtransactions model.

I am terrible at it, but I still like it a lot!

Read the thread title again:
Naraka Bladepoint is awesome. (Another fantastic Game pass game.)
This is a GP thread... I had to search to find that the game has been released on other formats a while ago.

So maybe that kind of thread should have been created as an OT when the game was released on stram or something... There is already a thread about additions to GP.

Coming soon to Xbox Game Pass: Total War: Three Kingdoms, Naraka: Bladepoint, Far Cry 5, and more

If this was about the game's actual merit Gamepass wouldn't be mentioned... Certainly not implied as the place to get the game right in the title.

Old game, old news...
 
It's not, stop with the derail and just leave if you have nothing to say about the game itself.
Can you even read the title of a thread before you join the conversation?

It's right there in the title, implied that this is a "Gamepass" game...

Make an OT thread for the game instead of stealth GP marketing.

Get over yourself. Your acting like a precious fool in a thread where people are talking about a game that just happens to be on a service that lots of Xbox owners appreciate. If it's not for you, hop into a thread that's more your thing, there's plenty of them around this forum, I'm sure.
 
Chinese players monster at this game, god damn. On PC i get destroyed. Thank god Xbox sale bad in china, so i don't get try hards from there xD.

Is the combat like light soul blade?

Do i need to be good at beat em up to play this thing? Or is the combat more tactical than reflex based?

Edit: oh, it's trash on pc, nevermind...
