PANGYO, Korea (May 23, 2019) – NCSOFT, a global premier game developer and publisher, today revealed information for the upcoming ‘Blade & Soul Tournament 2019’.

NCSOFT announced ‘Shackled Isles Party Match’ as the official match event for the Tournament. A team of three players will not only put their martial arts skills to the test but also compete against other teams to stay alive. The final surviving team will be crowned winner after intense battles.

The Korea Season of the Tournament will take off with the online application and online preliminary matches in May – June. Season finals will follow as offline matches in July – August, leading to ‘Blade & Soul Tournament 2019 World Championship’.

The World Championship will be held in the second half of the year. Regional representative teams will face against each other to claim the title of the 2019 World Champion. Regional teams will be chosen through each region’s tournament matches.

The total prize pool amount for this year’s Tournament is approximately KRW 300 billion. Winning teams will be able to claim KRW 100 billion for the Korea Season and KRW 200 billion for the World Championship.

Shackled Isles is a new PvP content introduced in Blade & Soul last year. This mayhem-filled, Battle Royale-style PvP mode is a battle against each other to be the last one standing, where players come up with a strategy utilizing items and geographical features in a contained island.

This PvP content has enhanced the level of excitement as an e-Sport event. Given its pure-nature in battle with strategy and martial arts skills in Blade & Soul, anyone can turn around a match and win regardless of their default equipment and weapon, making it an exhilarating e-Sports to watch. NCSOFT also verified Shackled Isles’s potential as an e-Sport content at a community-based tournament ‘Blade & Soul Tournament 2019 Clan War’ held in January.

All players can play the team-based PvP Sasle Gundo in Blade & Soul. Starting from June 5, anyone interested in participating in the Korea Season can look for their co-players and start practicing. Players can also participate in the ranking event. The top 100 players in the rank will receive the new Korea Season costumes in advance.

More information on Blade & Soul Tournament Korea Season will be available during late May. For more information, please visit the official websites for Blade & Soul Tournament.
