Black Desert Online is an open-world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that rejuvenates the genre.

With the deepest character customization of any game currently on the market, Black Desert Online allows for unprecedented detail in character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world, and extensive lore will enthrall both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs.

Travel through the lands in search of treasure and adventure or become one of the top craftsmen in the land. Set up trade routes and breed horses or compete against other guilds in epic siege warfare.

PearlAbyss CEO Kyungin Jung announced that the Xbox One X version of Black Desert will be playable at this year’s PAX West 2017, which will be held in Seattle, Washington from Sep. 1st to 4th.

Black Desert on Xbox One X will be available for demo play starting from Aug. 31st, Pre-PAX open House.

PearlAbyss will be participating in PAX WEST 2017 along with Microsoft, their partner company. Demo stations are available for fans so that anyone who visit will be able to play Black Desert Xbox One X version in crisp, true 4K resolution. Warrior, Ranger, Witch, and Striker will be available in a renewed UI with dedicated control mechanisms for the Xbox One controller.

PearlAbyss CEO Jung Kyungin said, “We have decided to join PAX West 2017 in order to better communicate with our fans and to collect valuable feedback which we will surely reflect into our development of Black Desert for the Xbox One family of devices.”
