Black Desert Online: Next Generation MMORPG?


In development by game developer company Pearl Abyss, Black Desert Online is an upcoming massively multiplayer roleplaying game with a fresh, next generation look. The development is almost finished and currently some extra content is being created. The game will be published by the Korean publisher DAUM and GameOn Japan.

Black Desert Online hosts a seamless world, this means there are no loading screens when you’re walking around the world (but there are when you’re joining dungeons etc.). The game world consists of a number of regions, each with their own climate/weather. This also effects your gameplay: you obviously can’t fish in a dry area like a desert but you can raise camels (mounts) there.

The game has numerous ways for your character to advance:  solo play, party play, field raids and normal raids, raid dungeons, siege warfare, guild vs guild, chasing and numerous other features. Housing is also an option and you can fill your house with all sorts of furniture! The more cozy and full your house is the more NPC’s will visit your house.

It would obviously suck to traverse the lands of Black Desert Online by foot so you’ll have the option to ride a donkey, a camel, or even an elephant if you like. Pearl Abyss is still hesitating wether or not to implement a breeding system to turn normal mounts into special ones.

The combat system is similar to Vindictus/Tera (action!). You can choose to play either in first person or in third person, whatever your preference is. You can also fight while mounted, which is pretty cool! Currently the list of classes is as follows: Fighter, Magician, Archer, Predator, Tamer, Blader, Male Archer, Valkyrie, and Male Wizard.
