Naraka: Bladepoint is getting a new weapon this week

24 Entertainment has announced that the staff weapon is being added to Naraka: Bladepoint on November 17th.

This melee weapon will feel similar to the spear, according to the developer, and features a dash attack gap closer and “powerful, precise charged-up strikes which can then chain into special moves.” Get a look at the weapon in the trailer below:

“To really bring the weapon to life, we invited a Shaolin monk to our Hangzhou HQ to provide our Staff mocap: recording a range of genuine Shaolin staff moves like sweeps, thrusts, upward swings, and many more,” lead producer Ray Kwan said. 

“Then we set about making them work in-game. With a little tweaking, these moves were ready to fit in Naraka! A large factor in why Naraka’s combat works so well is the fluidity, along with the functionality, of intricate movements like these. We micro-adjust them by hand, ensuring each flows into the next. This continuity work took a fair while to get right with the Staff.”

Naraka: Bladepoint is available now on Xbox Series X/S and PC.
