Many gamers out there assumed that no Battle Royale game would ever come close to achieving the level of success that Fortnite and PUBG had. However, that couldn’t be any further from the truth.
Introducing Blood Strike, a fast-paced battle royale FPS game by NetEase Games. This game has already amassed over 300 million active players in China alone and the developers have stated that they plan to go global.
While we’re sure many of you can’t wait to get your hands on the game, some of you might have to wait a little while longer.
Today, we’re here to go through everything we currently know about the release date of Blood Strike.

When Will Blood Strike Be Released?
Well, technically speaking, Blood Strike has already been released for both the Play Store and App Store. However, that doesn’t mean all of you can play the game as only certain servers have been officially released.
Blood Strike had started its closed beta earlier in 2023, through which players were able to play the game on the beta servers. The areas selected for this beta were:
- United States
Recently, rumors started circulating that the game would be launching globally on the 28th of October, 2023.
Well, the date has already passed, and while there wasn’t a global launch, that doesn’t mean nothing happened. Blood Strike released a server for SEA (South East Asian) players to play without having to play with a high ping.
This marked the official East-Asian release of Blood Strike on the Play Store and App Store, alongside the Latin American servers.
This means that if your respective store is of the SEA version then you can download and play it right now!
Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any word on when the global release will be happening. Though, it’s estimated that the game should be available to play globally around March 2024.
What About the Blood Strike US Servers?
Now, you might be wondering why we didn’t mention the US servers. Well, that’s because we bring you some unfortunate news. The launch for the US servers has most likely been pushed back to March 2024.
While the developers haven’t released any official statements on this, the App Store has been updated to show the date of March 24, 2024.
As you can imagine, this has caused a lot of distress among all the US people who were patiently waiting for US servers to release alongside the other servers.
If there’s one silver lining to this for people wanting to play on US servers, it’s that by the time the game launches there officially all the bugs will have been fixed.
With that being said, there’s also the fact that Blood Strike has been consistently running events and giving out freebies to their players to celebrate the launch.
Unless you don’t mind playing on other servers and facing super high ping issues, you’ll most likely be missing out on them.
This is everything we currently know about the release date of Blood Strike. While the expected date for US servers is indeed March 24, 2024, we’re still hoping the developers step up and release the game earlier.
