'Black Desert Online' Teases More Land of the Morning Expansion - Trailer

by Rainier on May 16, 2023 @ 6:00 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.

Korean publisher and developer Pearl Abyss introduced Land of the Morning Light, its first large-scale content expansion to Black Desert Online for 2023.

Coming to North America and Europe in June, Land of the Morning Light is a new mythical continent that is filled with light and dark dichotomies: moral fables of action and consequence, likable and troublesome characters, day and night cycles, and light and dark forces, comprising unique terrain, storyline, characters, bosses, and valuable rewards for a new MMORPG experience. Going beyond Black Desert Online’s medieval fantasy setting, the new expansion will introduce adventurers to a continent that exudes Korea’s rich history and culture. The new trailer reveals brutal bosses Adventurers will need to defeat in the new region.

Following Pearl Abyss’ recent ‘light’ video reveal last week, the Korean developer and publisher showcases the ‘darker side’ of the upcoming Land of the Morning Light expansion in the second part of the sneak peak trailer.

Where beauty gleams, mysteries lurk in the darkness.

Pearl Abyss also has collaborated with famous Korean singer So-hee Song and the Korean Tourism Organisation to produce a unique promotional video inviting travelers to enjoy the cultural wonders of Korea.

The video "Journey to Utopia" combines sweeping real-world footage from 12 locations in Korea, many of which have been expertly incorporated into the upcoming Land of the Morning Light expansion with idyllic scenes of So-hee Song’s soaring rendition of the song.

Beneath the region’s serenity, however, resides a mystery that casts a shadow of fear over its peaceful populace. Deadly perils await Adventurers who dare explore the deeper regions beyond Land of the Morning Light’s rural allure. Adventurers will be tasked to solve the island’s riddles and confront the powerful forces that terrorize its inhabitants. More intriguing details for the upcoming expansion will be unveiled on a weekly basis. 

To celebrate Land of the Morning Light’s June arrival, Pearl Abyss invites Adventurers to log in to enjoy benefits for a limited time period. Starting tomorrow, Thursday, May 11, and lasting through June 7, players can obtain up to 21 days worth of Value Pack, Blessing of Kamasylve, Secret Book of Old Moon by logging in to Black Desert Online every day. These items provide several buffs to help Adventurers on their journey. 

In addition, a celebratory coupon code is available for all Adventurers starting today, Wednesday, May 10, and lasting through May 31. The coupon includes a pet Haetae and a Choose Your 7-Day Box for an additional in-game buff.
