Final Black Desert Xbox One Open Beta Starts On February 14th Before Launching In March
The Xbox One version of Pearl Abyss’ Black Desert will launch its final open beta testing on February 14th. Testing will last for three days until February 17th. The open beta will be available to everyone in North America and Europe with an Xbox Live Gold account. The game will fully launch on the Microsoft Store on March 4th. In celebration of the last beta, a new trailer showing off some in-game cinematics and gameplay clips.
Black Desert on Xbox One is not played in the same world as the popular PC version Black Desert Online. The console version has been customized for the console with a newly revised in-game main story, a better “Action Mode”, and more. For more information, visit the official Black Desert Xbox site. You can purchase one of the game’s three tiers of pre-orders from there as well.
Adventurers will be able to explore the regions of Balenos and Serendia once more, and a level cap of 40 will be in effect for the beta. The 6 launch classes, Berserker, Ranger, Sorceress, Warrior, Witch, and Wizard will be playable, and you can engage in life skills like fishing, crafting and trading.
This final beta will also include many of the suggestions that we received from the last beta, including customizable key binds, photo mode, and skill locking. We’ve also been hard at work making sure that any of the issues that were found in beta have been squashed.
