Black Desert (Korean name: 검은사막) is a popular sandbox MMORPG developed by famous game developer Pearl Abyss. It has been the industry’s attention since the first public appearance on G-star. There were over 150,000 players for the first beta in October 2013 and above 25,000 videos until the end of the second beta, from which you can see it is worth to play.
Black Desert will be released with “free-to-play” model in Korea, Japan and Russia, while in North America and Europe, it will be released with “pay-to-play” model. The official launch date of NA and EU version is March 3 after approximate 6 hours’ maintenance (08:00 UTC-14:00 UTC), so be there waiting for it!
Different from general MMORPG, this game uses Pearl Abyss’ own “Black Desert” engine. Black Desert revolves around the conflict between two rival nations: the Republic of Calpheon and the Kingdom of Valencia. Brave fighters union together to fight against evil forces.
Black Desert Online is a MMOARPG game and the large-scale siege stands out. The combat is action based and active combat system requiring precise manual aiming, dodging and comboing.
The dynamic weather system is more lifelike and the day-night cycles with gradual progression of lighting effects. Players should adjust their equipment when they travel to different areas with different climates, or the weather will impact on their statistics.
The parkour system allows players to freely climb, explore and interact with buildings and obstacles.
The character customization system is extremely detailed. Players can even decide how fluffy the hair is and how long the hair is, which is just like “Korean Plastic Surgery.”

Players are quite interested in Black Desert which is upcoming. In the interview with the developers, players asked many questions as follows:
Q1: Are there any plans to add more races? If yes, can you hint any?
A1: Race selection is heavily influenced by user preference, and that's why we'd like to be more cautious about creating a new one. We are, however, planning to add some new races. Realistically, it will be either from an existing in-game race, or something that we think might be fun for players. We're thinking about adding a Shai race, for example, as a playable character, but it is still undecided which race should be developed first.
Q2: What do you think about making a class that focuses mainly on heal and support?
A2: Conventionally, characters in RPGs have clearly designated roles such as tanker, healer, damage dealer, support, etc., which get to perform somewhat repetitive play cycles depending on their roles. Black Desert offers free and unrestrained action combat, based on keyboard-mouse combinations, which is rare to find in an ordinary MMORPG. It is one of our critical goals to provide a powerful action experience to all users based on this feature.
However, it doesn't necessarily mean that a player cannot shift his/her stance from an unrestrained action to supportive playstyle, in a party or guild battle, such as acting as a decoy, healing and supporting other players, or assassinating enemies. Players can set their own role, depending on the situation. There will still be skills that perform healing/supporting actions, but those skills should not define and confine the character.
The Heal/Buff skills of Witch and Wizard are good examples. Each class can keep its own distinctive style, but it can also perform a different role in party/guild play by using appropriate skills.
We can see that players are most concerned with classes in black desert and adding a healing class seems to be expected. You can visit the community to get more details.
All in all, I think Black Desert Online is worth to play. Players must enjoy a fantasy desert world. At the same time, MmoGah.com will keep sharing more info of Black Desert with gamers. For any need of Black Desert Gold, please contact us at any time when you are free.
