HANGZHOU — JULY 29, 2022 | NetEase and 24 Entertainment are thrilled to announce a brand new map for NARAKA: BLADEPOINT — adding the new region of Holoroth — available for players on August 19.
 

After last month’s successful launch on Xbox Series X|S, the team haven’t relented, continuing to drive new content for players in NARAKA’s ever-expanding community. All of which ensures that, as we approach the game’s first anniversary, there is more NARAKA to enjoy than ever before.
 

You can view the trailer for the new map here. Holoroth offers many new experiences for players and a wealth of new features. With beautiful scenery and some unforgiving terrain really changing things up for NARAKA 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. 
 

To get a first look at the action unfolding in Holoroth, a new gameplay trailer has been released today and can be seen here
