Blade & Soul's First Expansion Gets Release Date, New Trailer

Silverfrost Mountains is coming soon.


Blade & Soul players won't have to wait much longer for the game's first expansion, Silverfrost Mountains.

NCSoft announced today that the add-on for the PC MMO will be available on March 23, introducing new zones, quests, and "challenging" end-game content. A new trailer has also been released; check it out below.

More details have been shared on the Blade & Souls website. As mentioned, the level cap goes up to 50 with this new expansion and Hongmoon level cap rises to 10.

"It's also the biggest leap forward in the ongoing story, bringing players one step closer to unraveling the engaging world narrative, and revenge for their school and master," reads a line from its description.

"Continue your story of vengeance as you travel to this vast new landscape within the Earthen Realm. From the verdant Primeval Forests to the icy peaks of Shiverstone Range, your dangerous and violent path of revenge is juxtaposed by beautiful and astounding backdrops."

Silverfrost Mountains also adds eight new dungeons--five Expert and three Heroic--which can be played with four or six players. There are also new 24-player open world instances called Frostscale Basin and Beastbog, while a new PvP zone can be found in the Soulstone Plains.

Additionally, the update offers improvements for Blade & Soul's clan crafting system. The full patch notes for the update are coming later, presumably soon.

For now, you can check out some Silverfrost Mountains images in the gallery below.

Blade & Soul is a free-to-play game. The game launched in the west on January 19, reaching 1 million players after its first week, going on to reach 2 million players not long after.
