The 60 player battle royale with a melee focus Naraka Bladepoint will be releasing relatively soon. The beta launched to some fanfare with its blend of parkour and the melee and ranged weapons available. Its players can’t wait to get back into the battle, and they won’t have much time to wait.

What are the different editions and pre-order bonuses?

If you decide to purchase the game (yes, it isn’t free-to-play) before it releases in August, there are many different editions on offer and a few preorder bonuses.

If you decide to pre-order the game from standard to the ultimate edition, you’ll gain an exclusive skin for the sword-based hero Tarka Ji and a new hero called Yoto Hime.

Here is what is included in the Deluxe Edition:

  • An exclusive spear skin that’s enveloped in water.
  • 10 tidal crates. They’ll likely include cosmetics in the boxes, similar to Overwatch.
