Black Desert Online on PC will shed new light to main weapon skills by introducing Succession Skills in next week’s update. Succession skills “will allow players to make the choice between choosing to specialize in their main weapons by sacrificing access to their Awakening skills. In return, they get powerful new skills focused on using their original weapons.”
Pearl Abyss has announced that the Mystic class has come to the Xbox One version of the action MMORPG Black Desert. Similar to monk classes in other RPGs, the Mystic is a female close-range melee brawler class that makes use of powerful combat Gauntlets and Vambraces to perform a variety of skills:
Black Desert Mobile is finally making its way to the West. Developer and publisher Pearl Abyss has announced that the mobile iteration of the popular PC and console MMORPG Black Desert Online will be launching sometime in December of this year. The game is now available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
A new PvE group activity is on its way to Black Desert Online. On July 10th, Level 56+ players of the popular action MMORPG will be able to take part in ‘The Altar of Blood’. Three-man parties will fight to defend an altar from hordes of enemies that get stronger over the course of multiple rounds.
First announced in E3, the launch on PlayStation 4 will be the second console release for the game. Black Desert became available on Xbox One earlier this year which broke its four year long exclusivity on PC. There are no news yet of any plans for Black Desert to take on the third console giant, the Nintendo Switch.
The small, but bold new Shai class is finally playable in Black Desert Online. Equipped with her giant boomerang, Shai supports her teammates in battle and fights from a distance. Shai is the 18th and first true support class to be added in the popular fantasy MMORPG.
Design as a support class, Shai wields a large boomerang that is almost as big as she is to swiftly attack enemies, support allies and evade. She has several unique skills at her disposal such as ‘Play Dead’ to fool enemies, ‘Get Well’ to heal allies, ‘Come Here and Hide!’ to shield her friends, and ‘Found You!’ to reveal hidden foes.
There’s a new ride blazing through Black Desert Online. Kakao Games has announced that Doom, the fiery Dream Horse is finally coming, but obtaining Doom will be a true achievement for any veteran player. The new mount is the fastest and strongest among the currently available Dream Horses.
The team behind Black Desert Online has announced that the game’s ‘Shadow Arena’, its first and only Battle Royale Mode will be taken down on April 10th. The short-lived PvP mode was first introduced back in January and had originally been planned to have continuous updates to keep it fresh and enjoyable.
The team states that the focus on new updates was deviating from their original direction partly due to the time being put on developing the Shadow Arena mode. Closing Shadow Arena was ultimately the option chosen instead of making partial improvements.
