Blade & Soul, the eastern fantasy action MMORPG from NCsoft was released in Korea in June 2012. The game started with pay-to-play model, and it succeeded in Korea, but B&S still decided to turn to free-to-play model, 4 years after it launched, and it was not because the game was not popular in Korea.
The free-to-play switchover has conducted in Korea today along with the release of the first part of a major update that increased the level cap from 50 to 55. However, the release of the long awaited Gunner class remained "to be announced". NCsoft released a new trailer though, showing the new features in the update as well as an early look at the Gunner class.
