Melee Battle Royale, NARAKA: BLADEPOINT, enters Global beta in April

The developer, 24 Entertainment, brings hack-and-slash gameplay and parkour to the battle royale circuit this year with NARAKA: BLADEPOINT.

NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is planned to release later this year, but you can sink your teeth into it early during a fast-approaching open global beta. Following two successful North American and Asian betas, this popular up-and-coming action battle royale will throw players into 60-person superpowered kung fu showdowns.
