Blade and Sorcery gets a UI overhaul in the next patch

WarpFrop has shown off the UI overhaul for Blade and Sorcery in next month’s patch, changing the game’s menus from a 2D render to 3D. WarpFrop is also adding in a new ‘focus’ bar, allowing players to slow down time instead of having to spend mana like before. The update was originally scheduled to launch in April, but has now been pushed back to the end of May. Check out the new health and mana interface in action here.
