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.
