At launch the game grabbed the attention of gamers around the world with its beautifully designed open world, insanely detailed character creator and its real-time action-based combat. Black Desert Online also pushed the technical limits on what is possible within modern day MMORPGs.
Black Desert Online has managed to attract over 3 million players and has been a massive success in North America and Europe. The MMO managed to captivate a highly dedicated community with unique gameplay, innovative game systems and overall depth.

Minsung Kim, CEO at Kakao Games Europe B.V. said:
[blockquote]We feel honored to have achieved this incredible success and would like to thank our community for their continued feedback, support, and enthusiasm. Our partners at Pearl Abyss are hard at work to add even more exciting content in the coming months and we can’t wait for it to come to our service.[/blockquote]
As well as the trailer above, Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss celebrate the 2nd anniversary with an infographic (see image below for a snippet) that details two years worth of in-game data such as cumulative playtime, quest completions and the number of times players died.
In-game, players can look forward to the recently announced Absolute Skills for all classes, a new improved UI system and 3D mini-map and there will be a token of appreciation in the form of an Appreciation Gift from which players can obtain highly sought Boss Gears and Weapons. New players are also eligible if they create a free trial account and complete the tutorial before the next scheduled maintenance which takes place on March 7th. The Appreciation Gift will be distributed via in-game mail.
Adventurers will also be able to obtain rare Accessories through in-game events, along with special gifts for rookie and returning adventurers. Spanish players will be excited that the game has been updated with Spanish localization.
