Black Desert (Korean: 검은사막) is an upcoming sandbox-oriented massively multiplayer online role-playing game byKorean video game developer Pearl Abyss.[1][2] The game has been in development since 2010, and entered closed beta testing (CBT) in October 2013.[3][4][5][6] The game uses Pearl Abyss' own "Black Desert" engine specifically created to handle the fast rendering required for its seamless world and large-scale castle sieges.[7][8] Black Desert uses a free-to-play model although no further details of the business model or revenue generation have been announced.[1][9] It will initially be released on the Microsoft Windows platform, and Jaemin Youn, Pearl Abyss' Chief Operations Officer, has announced that the developer has begun talks with Sony Computer Entertainment regarding a version for thePlayStation 4.[10][11]


Black Desert takes place in a high fantasy setting and revolves around the conflict between two rival nations, the Republic of Calpheon and the Kingdom of Valencia.[8]


The game includes a number of features to assist with immersion and the sandbox aspect. These include:

  • parkour system, similar to that seen in Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed, allowing players to climb, explore and interact with buildings and obstacles.[12]
  • A dynamic, worldwide weather system which will include large scale events such as typhoons and will influence gameplay.[13] Localized weather will include events such as temporary fog which players may exploit to launch surprise attacks on rival guild structures.[14] Seasonal weather changes or travelling to areas with different climates will require the player to adjust their equipment, for example using warmer clothing in cold weather which also impacts on a player's statistics.[15]
  • A dynamic day/night cycle with a gradual progression of lighting effects. During the night some NPCs will become unavailable as they return home while the number and type of monsters that a player may encounter will increase. Different game content will be available depending upon whether it is night or day.[16][17]
  • Player housing will be non-instanced and will vary from tents through to more substantial houses and buildings. Players will be able to furnish and equip their housing and may hire NPCs to set up as traders from the building.[18][19]
  • Players will be able to engage in mounted combat.[20][21] Mounts are acquired by taming in the wild and players are able to breed special mounts by mating certain types.[22] Mounts require feeding and care, cannot be stored in the inventory, and may be killed.[23]
  • And more ;)

I need change my graphic card, any suggestion ?

with this one http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gt-740m i could play from my laptop the beta version without any problems.


Anyway, you will have to wait atleast 2 more years until a english version comes out. But, with a little effort you can play the korea version if you really want to, when it will be online.( most proably, this summer ) :D.

One of the many caves / dungeons small preview: 

Small preview of questing: 

Some berserker action: 

Archer starting area: 


I need to mention that in this videos it's presented low level gameplay, so it's pretty easy to kill some monsters, do some quests, and etc. At higher lvl it will get a lot harder :D


One thing i don't like in this game it's that you can't swim !? Maybe it will be avliable later on, or at higher lvl ?


And also, while waiting for this game, you can try another awesome mmorpgs, that will come this summer in english version, and those are: "Archeage" or "Blade & Soul". You won't regret playing it. Archeage has an awesome gameplay even if it's quite old  ;) , while Blade & Soul really fast paced action. ( I'll make a thread for this games too, tonight ).

Never told you, but if you have any ideas that you think will fit in the game, post them here and i will tell them to the developer team. Black desert dev team is very open minded and accepts many ideas :D

Or you can always post them ( the ideas ) on the official facebook page :D

Mehti, if that is a sugestion read this :  Atacking system it's already like that ;). You don't need to select one mob, each time you want to atack it. The game has area atack. Everything that is in your range of atack can be atacked / can recive dmg .

You can see that here: 



If it's not a sugestion, but just a fact, sorry for my missunderstanding :D

Good news for all Western Black Desert Fans. Daum, the Korean Publisher of Black Desert will expand to the Western Market and open a new Office in the West. Pearl Abyss also announced the Date for the 3rd Closed Beta, which is scheduled for late August/early September.

This information are confirmed, so they are true.

The game might come for NA/EU with no localization of the game, like it did in Russia, meaning the game won't suffer any changes, and it will stay just like the korean version, but translated.

The russian publisher is GameNet.ru. The black deserts russian oficial page is here: http://blackdesert.ru/

More information are coming soon.

If you guys didnt knew there is actually another pretty promising upcoming MMORPG. Its called ArcheAge.

It has some very nice concepts and a very great interaction between the world, the actions of the players etc.

Check it out here:

In my opinion games in the future will all be like that just in different settings etc. but the core of interacting with other players and an diverse world will be the real next-gen ;)

The 3rd CBT has ended, and the game looks more promosing than ever. The game still needs to be optimized a little, but has the potential of being the best mmorpg until now:D

Many new things has been added to the game, like the posibility to swim or the posibility to dye your items. Also for the lovers of the older kind of mmos that use point and click system for moving, questing and fighting, i'm happy to announce you that in the 3rd cbt this option was avaliable too. Ofcourse there are many other small changes that were made in the game, such as the party-playing experience which has been improved a lot, but also the mobs AI.

I didn't have enough time to test everything i wanted to test, because the real fun starts after lvl 50, and i was only 43, but i still had fun.

In two months or so the OBT ( Open beta test ) for korea will start, and than many of us wil be able to play it.

Next year the english version should come to NA/EU published by DAUM, the same publisher for korea too, so the game won't suffer that much from the localisation process. Also, in spring we will be able to play the RU version of the game.


Until the OBT starts i leave you this link with tons of screenshots: http://bbs.black.game.daum.net/gaia/do/black/gallery/list?bbsId=BDT002


Here are some videos too ( I am not the author, Steparu beeing the one who made them, so please use copyrights if you inted to use them in any way):




Ofcourse you can search for other videos with Black Desert on his youtube channel.

For those who would like to explore the wanderful maps until the OBT, a private server made it's way to me :D

Black eagle project is a black desert emulator aka private server in which you can only explore the world, until now. They plan to add monsters and other things later on.

I'm not really encouraging what they do, buuut, it's better than nothing.

I'll leave their link here: http://blackeagle.yothri.com/
You may find me in game at the Name ChunChun or Chun-Chun. But i don't really stay online much.


If you have qustions, please post them here :D



Also, the russian CBT may start sooner than we expected, so stay tuned for more info :D The connection will be much better on the RU server than the KR one.

Daum confirmed that Black Desert will hit the korean Market this year. The game will most likely launch in December, the Open Beta should start at the end of the Month or early December. There are still no signs for a western beta yet, but Daum will probably start focusing on the western market next year.


Also the russian cbt will start at the same time as the korean OBT, and the game will launch in early 2015. The russian version will have some changes, for example the night mode will be the one from CBT2, and not the one cureantly used by KR. There are many other minor changes.

Here's a video for that night mode while in storm.



Furthermore some more classes were confirmed, such as a male ranger. Heard some rumors that the only class that won't have a replacement for the other gender will be the Giant. There are not other info regarding the other races.


I'll leave you here a Game Skills calculator: https://gme.ru/calcskills/bdo/


Hope to see you on OBT, and also anyone else who was invited for the Russian CBT is welcome to join me in game :D


And a short timelapse(60 fps)

It's the second day of the F&F test for the russian version. Nothing new so far ;(. I think it will take some more time until CBT.

The KR OBT is close. The exact date will be announced on 2 Dec.


Here's another good looking skill calc: http://bdo.ghorde.ru/calc.swf


Here's some video for Tamer and Blader. This clases have been changed, but I'm not sure how much.




I do not own the videos, and neither do I know their origin.
