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.

Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss announced a new charity initiative to help the victims of the Australian bushfire and Turkey earthquake. Via an in-game event, players can help raise funds that will be donated to charities dedicated to providing aid for these disasters.

By completing in-game tasks, players can raise up to ₩ 100,000,000 (~$84,000/€76,000), that will be donated by Pearl Abyss to help victims of these disasters, the final recipients of the donations will be announced at a later date.
