24 Entertainment has confirmed that a Naraka: Bladepoint Duos Queue is in the works, and that's not all -- this feature has been confirmed to arrive with the next Naraka: Bladepoint update.
Naraka: Bladepoint is a fantasy-themed Battle Royale game featuring high-flying characters using epic weapons and magical powers. It proved to be a solidly popular game, hitting 136,000 concurrent players during its final beta test earlier this year. The game has since launched and had a major update or two along the way; now, 24 Entertainment has revealed that Naraka: Bladepoint Duos Queue will be arriving in the next update.
What We Know About Naraka: Bladepoint Duos Queue and the Next Update
Naraka: Bladepoint Duos Queue will arrive with the next update. As one might expect, this will allow you and a friend to enter into the game together -- although you won't be able to queue as Duos in Ranked mode right away.
"In the next update. Yes, you read that right: duos are coming. CONFIRMED," read a portion of the weekly F.A.Q. "Duo mode will be added to the quick match first. Afterward, the team will adjust and work on the gameplay based on data and feedback and make a decision whether to add duo mode to ranked."
Duos Queue isn't the only new addition that has recently come to the game; last month, Naraka: Bladepoint added in a 1v1 Bloodsport game mode that allows 16 players to participate in a quick tournament in the style of the classic Jean Claude Van Damme movie of the same name.
Unfortunately, there are still a few unanswered questions about Naraka: Bladepoint Duos Queue. How many players will it have? Will there be unique rewards? 24 Entertainment says that it will share more details about this feature in the coming weeks; for now, you can get in on the Battle Royale action right now at a discount by buying Naraka: Bladepoint on Steam for $13.99 or your regional equivalent, a 30% discount off the game's normal price.
