'Black Desert' (ALL) Rolls Out PS4/XOne Cross-Play Support, Archer Character, Limited-Time Deals and Events

Black Desert 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 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.

Today, Pearl Abyss’s MMORPG Black Desert will receive cross-play support on PS4 and Xbox One.

Players will now have the option to join cross-play or platform-exclusive servers. Adventurers can look forward to taking part in Conquest and Node Wars, which will take place on cross-play servers for each region starting Sunday, March 8. To celebrate the addition of cross-play support, Black Desert will have an in-game event for new and returning users.

The Archer character class and Kamasylvia region have also been added to Black Desert on PlayStation 4 with the cross-play update, achieving parity with Xbox One. 

To celebrate the addition of cross-play support, Black Desert will have an in-game event for new and returning Adventurers, which allows them to acquire the Cliff and Awakening weapon boxes through completing special quests. These weapons are incredibly powerful, but can also be exchanged for gold bars! Adventurers can get special rewards, such as Vlak’s Cry and Memory Fragments, by finding treasure chests located in the sea. Adventurers can also look forward to a host of other events to celebrate the newly added cross-play feature!

In addition, Black Desert will receive double discount sales from March 4 - 18. All PlayStation Network users can buy Black Desert at a discounted price of 25% off and purchase pearls at a 10% discount. For PlayStation Plus subscribers, the discount will be doubled! All Xbox One users can buy Black Desert at a 50% discount and purchase pearls at 20% discount from March 3 - 16.
