Naraka Bladepoint’s first World Championship kicks off this month. Here’s all we know about the event.

Naraka Bladepoint, 24 Entertainment’s melee-focused Battle Royale title, will hold its first-ever World Championship esports event in 2022.

The event, which will bring three-player squads of the world’s finest Naraka players together for a thrilling battle, is taking place in Singapore but you can watch it from the comfort of your own home.

In our review, we called the game “a fun and unique twist to the battle royale genre”, and the game has recently added the iconic Bruce Lee, too.
