'Black Desert Online' (ALL) Details Q2 Development Roadmap

by Rainier on April 24, 2019 @ 8:28 a.m. PDT

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.

Pearl Abyss has announced the Black Desert Online roadmap that will introduce a host of new content and activities to the popular MMORPG in the 2nd quarter of 2019. Players can look forward to interesting areas to explore, fiery mounts to ride, new weapons to wield and a brand new PvE experience that will enthrall the community as a whole.

Although the exact dates are to be confirmed, Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games are planning to bring the following content to Western audiences before the end of this quarter.

  • Doom, a new hellish Dream Horse that will only accept the fiercest of riders. It is a true achievement for those who are diligent enough to harness their horse breeding skills. This new dream horse will be available next week.
  • Underwater Ruins, These mysterious ruins can be accessed from a secret rift that exists deep down in the Ocean and contains high-level areas with new monsters and a field boss to boot.
  • Star’s End is a new region that will be key to unlock the ultimate prize, the infamous BlackStar Weapon. Only the most dedicated, most bravest of adventurers will be able to wield it.
  • A brand new experience will add new group based content to Black Desert Online which will introduce a different type of PvE than what players have seen so far.

Aside from these major content updates, smaller changes will also be made to keep people engaged and improve the overall quality of Black Desert Online. The Mediah Quest Renewal, for instance, will update most activities in the region, including background lore and story to provide a more immersive experience. In Garmoth Chase players will have to follow the menacing dragon as he flies around Drieghan. Lucky players can earn the rewards he drops down from the sky.

Many other events will be rolled out, starting with Mystical Ellie’s Water Festival that commences today. This spring event is bigger than ever before, so make your way to Terrmian Beach to join in on the fun. Get ready for some serious water balloon popping, fishing activities and other event quests and get handsomely rewarded.
