Daum Games has announced that Black Desert Online will release March 3rd, 2016. Players have until February 26th to place their pre-orders on the official website, after which these offers will expire.
Black Desert Online is an open world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that aims to rejuvenate the genre. The game is targeting both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs with intuitive controls, a beautifully designed world, and extensive lore.
A brand new trailer called “The Manifestation” has been released which gives a taste of some of Black Desert Online’s story elements. Watch the new trailer below:
Additionally, players can now sign-up for the second Closed Beta. Players can register here for a chance to participate in the second and final Closed Beta Test, set to begin February 18th, 08:00 UTC and ends on February 22nd at 08:00 UTC. Those who pre-ordered the Explorer’s or Conqueror’s package need not register and will be automatically granted access.
Black Desert Online recently saw the release of the standalone Character Creator. Available as a free download, the tool allows players to import their characters into both the full Black Desert Online game and the second Closed Beta Test.
Players still have a few days to participate in the Beauty and The Beast contest. Daum is accepting entries for The Beast phase of the contest on the event page, where the most dreadful characters made using the Character Creator can earn their owners Beta keys, t-shirts, limited edition statues, and more.
