The latest and upcoming 16th class of Black Desert Online called Lahn has been added to the game’s character creation tool. Players can pre-create their characters’ looks before Lahn is released into the world of Black Desert on May 23rd. The new class utilizes dance-like combat movements to perform devastating mid-range AoE combos. Her Nimbus Stride skill allows her to glide through the air.

Changes related to CC and knock-back have been applied to reduce the impact that server lag has on recovery speeds. You can read the full list of changes on Black Desert Online’s patch notes.

Sandbox MMOs are massively multiplayer online games with minimal limitations on the players’ capabilities to roam and change their virtual world. Players have access to a wide array of gameplay features or tools to create changes or impressions that have lasting effects. Common features that help define an MMO as sandbox are player housing, structure building, player-driven economy, crafting, farming and other open-world activities that affect the creation or modification of the game’s world.
We are listing these games based on their titles in ascending order.
We last heard of Final Fantasy XI Mobile, the collaborative project between Nexon and Square Enix quite recently in Nexon’s Earnings Report for Q1 2018. The report showed that the game is expected to release in Q2 2018 & onward in Japan & North America. Now it seems that a member of the FFXI sub-reddit community has stumbled upon a set of screenshots that shows off the graphics and world of the upcoming mobile game.
Pearl Abyss and NCSoft had their turn of revelations and now it’s Nexon’s turn to show us how their games performed in Q1 of 2018 and what they have in line for the months ahead. The Tokyo-based developer and publisher raised a record-breaking ¥90.5 billion in revenue for the quarter that was “primarily driven by strong performance of Dungeon & Fighter in China around the Lunar New Year season”. PC revenue (84%) outperformed mobile revenue (16%) by a mile. China is responsible for a whopping (67%) of their total revenue for this quarter and Korea behind it with (22%). North America and Europe/others are far behind with a whopping (4%) per recognized region.
