NetEase and 24 Entertainment have today announced that a brand new map for Naraka: Bladepoint will arrive in August 2022. Adding the new region of Holoroth, the new Naraka: Bladepoint map will be available for both Xbox Series X|S and PC gamers simultaneously.

After last month’s successful launch on Xbox Series X|S, new content will surely come fast. According to publisher NetEase, the team haven’t relented. Which means that, as we approach the game’s first anniversary, there is more to the game than ever before. This new Naraka: Bladepoint map, Holoroth, is just one example of this. Offering many new experiences for players and a wealth of new features, the map benefits from beautiful scenery and some unforgiving terrain really changing things up for Naraka: Bladepoint players. 

Some areas of Holoroth see a lot of snowfall and this can get quite deep, slowing progress for combatants. Players will also have to watch out for overexposure to the cold, with their character needing to seek out campfires for life-giving warmth. While in the desert, players will need to keep an eye out for disorienting sandstorms. There are also lots of new interactions with objects to incorporate into player strategies — among them various installed mechanisms, falling rocks, and creeper vines. 

Of course, new combat experiences are also prevalent. On the floating platforms around Plumed Castle in the centre of the map, players will be able to try out the new aerial combat, enabling them to leap higher across yawning chasms. And in The City of Tang and the urban area of Mehtaab, players will find plenty of buildings to climb, where they can also hide and watch out for their enemies — perfect for switching from melee to ranged combat.
