Players take on various roles within the game, including a human, an evil spirit or an immortal. Each role has different skill sets that can be learned and improved by completing various tasks. Like Tian Long Ba Bu (TLBB), BO provides a wide range of virtual items for game players to purchase to enhance their game-playing experience.

 

We began operating Blade Online in October 2004 after licensing the game from a third party. We have since developed four expansion packs, and in August 2007 we purchased Blade Online’s source code to enable us to have complete control over future game enhancements. In June 2008, we launched a major expansion pack for Blade Online, which reignited interest in the game and propelled PCU to higher levels.
