'Black Desert Online' (ALL) Gets Dedicated PvP Server, Oktoberfest Event

by Rainier on Sept. 13, 2017 @ 8:02 a.m. PDT

Black Desert Online is an open-world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that rejuvenates the genre.

With the deepest character customization of any game currently on the market, Black Desert Online allows for unprecedented detail in character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world, and extensive lore will enthrall both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs.

Travel through the lands in search of treasure and adventure or become one of the top craftsmen in the land. Set up trade routes and breed horses or compete against other guilds in epic siege warfare.

Black Desert Online will receive a dedicated PvP server with new rules that negate the karma loss players normally receive after killing another player.

Currently, players with a negative karma score are permanently flagged for PvP and can be attacked anywhere, including Black Desert Online’s safe zones. Weaponry and armor enhancements can be downgraded upon death and NPCs become hostile, even within rural areas. The new PvP server will definitely highlight Black Desert Online’s open-world PvP as one of its core features.

Following a first test received with positive feedback from the Russian community, PearlAbyss has decided to make karma loss optional by creating a dedicated PvP server. Players will now be able to kill each other without having to worry about penalties. The dedicated PvP server will be implemented after this week’s maintenance, and the other servers will retain the original karma system.

To celebrate the fall season and the newfound PvP freedom, PearlAbyss and Kakao Games are delighted to announce that the Beer Festival will return with a special Oktoberfest world theme. Beer-loving Black Desert Online adventurers are in for a treat this year as they can earn silver and valuable items by crafting and delivering beer to several NPCs scattered around the realm. The Beer Festival will be held from September 14 through October 11.
