Does it remind you of ArcheAge? It does for me. PearlAbyss is the developer of this game, which is founded by the original producer of Continent of the Ninth. In its facebook, official released more and more info about this game. By reading the info, we are getting closer to the new Korean game. I'd like to collect the info and show you what kind of world that Black Desert is.

Part02. Cities, Towns, Maps


Beginner village - Bell Leah village:

Serendipity DIA estates, Heidelberg:

CAL Ferrer, a provincial city of Heidelberg:

Crohn's Castle overlooks the town from Bell Leah, this place is going to jump directly to the North mountain in that Ballet:

This picture is about the planned area In Black Desert world. You can see a area which had painted colorfully is named 'Balenos', and there's a territory named 'Serendia' from Balenos's down side. And you will see the largest territory named 'Calpheon' on right side of 'Serendia'.

These three areas are close from the sea. For that reason they have many forest and mountains. As much as you go to the South side, weather is getting colder, and the North side is warmer. Also if you go to the right side you will see a vast area of desert.

 

Part03. Weather System

There's the daytime and nighttime concept in the world of Black Desert. At night, soft light will shine through the windows, then you can find out mysterious things you haven't seen during the daytime.

 

Part04. Siege


Black Desert Siege is boasting a powerful fire and shoot the cannon and wrecked the gate, Mercury maintains a mounted troops dispatched to the siege must commit them to the side of the artillery, assaulted the General infantry hand-to-hand combat or their cannon.

The siege in Black Desert is like a Korean chess. As you know from trailer, extremely powerful cannon should destroy the castle gate, cavalry from defense side should interrupt the artillery, infantry units should protect cavalry. It is just like a Rock-Paper-Scissors game.

 

Part05. Housing System

As you know from interview article, we provide housing system in Black Desert.

Housing system support various things. If you install storage, you can keep your items in there, or you can make your store to sell items by hiring NPC. Also, if you install storage, you can keep your items in there, or install bed and you can take a rest on it. By the other word, it means you can open your house to everyone and make own forge or store.

You don't need to build a houses, all the houses in town and field could be yours. Of course you will need enough money and bid successfully from house auction.

 

Part06. In-game Combat Action

In addition to the variety of the black desert combat action adventure action and prepare them. For example, holding the wall or even to jump and grab the railing rising is mushy, such as wave action of Thakur (Parkour) or Yama no (Yamakasi), also known as 'action '.

What can I do with a picture attached to the player base in addition to the default behavior, add multiple actions. Sometimes the mood for a bit of time to set aside, such as on the roof of the building to see how. :)

We will provide various adventure action besides battle actions. For example, you can just climb wall or jump and catch the balustrade. It is just like the Parkour or Yanakasi.

Actions in this picture are provided by all default, and else we are working continue for the other adventure actions. Try climbing on the towers or houses, when you feel boring.

 

Part07. Battle Mercenary Soldiers

Let us introduce battle mercenary soldiers.

You pay some money to NPC and you can hire mercenary soldiers in village. Of course there is a other option to hire them, like be familiar with NPCs or finish specific quest.

As you see this picture, we are providing five mercenary soldiers now, and still working on new mercenary. Of course, these mercenaries are efficient in hunting monsters, but they will do more great job in castle siege which requires a lots of manpower.

 

Part08. Monsters

You'll meet a bunch of the Impreza at the beginning of the game:

It's said that this is the biggest Boss monster, creepy? XD

Pearl Abyss is planning to start their service for Black Desert in early 2016. It has become my anticipated games of 2016 now.
