'Black Desert Online' Fall Content Roadmap Reveals New Quest Realm, Co-op Dungeon, Region And More - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 27, 2022 @ 2:38 p.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 announced Black Desert Online’s content roadmap at the annual Heidel Ball community event, revealing an innovative new world called “Abyss One: The Magnus,” the game’s third Atoraxxion co-op dungeon, and a new region heavily inspired by Korea’s Joseon Dynasty called “The Land of the Morning Light.”

New Content – Abyss One: The Magnus

Launching worldwide on October 12, The Magnus is an unseen realm unbound by time and space, coexisting alongside the world of Black Desert. This realm offers players new challenges and adventures that can’t be found in Black Desert Online‘s main world. Players in The Magnus can travel to special areas called “Abysses” where they will encounter missions and quests that are unique to the theme of each Abyss. 

Abysses can be accessed through wells in the main world and used as a means of transportation to other territories within Black Desert Online. Players will also be able to freely move items across different storage locations in the world.

Players who complete all main quests in The Magnus can acquire the following rewards:

  • A new “Rabam Skill” for each class to diversify the combat experience
  • A “PEN (V) Boss Armor,”a top-tier gear that helps protect new and returning Adventurers

New Co-Op Dungeon – Atoraxxion: Yolunakea

Black Desert Online’s third co-op dungeon, Atoraxxion: Yolunakea, arrives this November. Set in the ruins of an ancient forest, this new dungeon offers epic monster battles, thought-provoking puzzles, and an in-depth exploration of lore through a fast-paced story-driven questline. Players must defeat Amarillos, a challenging boss that evolves into a new form with more strength and power every time it is taken down. The difficulty of this dungeon is similar to the previous co-op dungeon “Sycrakea.”

New Region in Development – The Land of the Morning Light

The Land of the Morning Light is Black Desert Online’s new region currently in development. Inspired by the Joseon Dynasty, the last dynastic kingdom of Korea, the region features unique terrain, buildings, and vegetation that are reminiscent of the era. Players can look forward to exciting quests that are based on Korean folklore and the release of Black Desert Online’s highest level of gloves when this region launches.

The Parallelvia Realm

Parallelvia Realm is a challenging hunting ground in Black Desert Online for players who want to face stronger monsters. With the Parallel World update, players can enter the Parallelvia Realm from any server. Players will be able to enter the realm by simply clicking a designated button at each hunting ground. The Parallelvia Realm launches in Korea first on October 5, followed by other regions afterward.
