Naraka: Bladepoint Releases A New Trailer, Announces Its Forerunner Beta Starts On April 23rd

Naraka: Bladepoint just released its official gameplay trailer, giving players a peak at what the upcoming action royale is like ahead of its Forerunner Beta coming in April.

The trailer kicks off showing a player grappling from rooftop to the next to get the drop on an enemy. Slinking across the top of a ruined temple the player eventually strikes, dealing damage from their bow before closing the distance with the grappling hook and finishing the job. 

The POV then shifts to a sword user tackling a team of enemies seeingly by themselves. Once dispatched the action shifts back to the initial character, hiding in the boughs of a tree, waiting to strike. The trailer closes with some sizzle reel shots of more combat, as well as announcing the beta, which is coming on April 23rd.

You can actually request access to the beta on Steam right now.

Naraka: Bladepoint is a 60-player battle royale game (though it's also being called an "action royale") that sees players pitted against each other till one is left standing. You know, standard royale fare. However, the different traversal options like the grappling hook or wall running and parkour seem to give a ton of other possibilities for those looking for a fresh look at the genre. While there is no full release date given yet, the Forerunner Beta on Steam is coming April 23rd, giving players who are chosen a chance to check out Naraka for themselves.

Check out the trailer in the embed above.
