Naraka: Bladepoint, a NetEase game title, announced on Monday that its global sales volume had exceeded 10 million copies. As a reward for the achievement, players will each receive a set of commemorative weapon skins in the game.
Naraka: Bladepoint is a martial arts action-adventure escape game developed by 24 Entertainment and published by NetEase Games’ office in Montreal. It was tested without deleting files on July 8, 2021 while the game’s Steam global public beta was officially launched on August 12, 2021.
The game is based on a fictional fantasy world in which two gods, Yin and Yang, battle each other which eventually leads to the eternal calamity of the world. Players need to play as a hero, collect various resources on the map, defeat other players, and survive until the end. In November last year, Naraka: Bladepoint officially stated that the sales volume of the game had exceeded 6 million copies on the 90th day of the game’s global release.
24 Entertainment said that the newest map developed will soon be unveiled while new gameplays such as PVE will be launched in the second half of the year. Naraka: Bladepoint will also be released through the Microsoft Xbox Game Pass Games Library on June 23. PC players and Xbox Series X/S players can play in subscription mode without payments.

While constantly breaking its sales records, Naraka: Bladepoint has also become an important window for traditional culture to venture overseas. Most of the weapons in the game are copies of actual cultural relics that can be found in museums throughout the country. The game developers worked collaborated with museums to carry out innovative dissemination of traditional culture and help preserve the intangible heritage artifacts of the country, its culture, and its people. For example, not long ago, the collaboration between Naraka: Bladepoint and Longmen Grottoes not only restored the Longmen Buddha statues to the game, but also used some of its sales income to support the restoration of the Longmen Grottoes.
