'Black Desert Online' Reveals New Character Class Sage, Coming Later This Month - Trailer

by Rainier on March 12, 2021 @ 8:34 a.m. PST

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.

Pearl Abyss revealed details and the launch dates for the new Sage class during a special Black Desert Online livestream on Twitch.

As the first caster-type class since the release of the Wizard and Witch, he will be making his PC debut on March 17 and will be available on Xbox and PS4 on March 31.

As a master of space and time, Sage commands both to unleash astounding, destructive power. Wielding the cube-shaped Kyve as his main weapon, he opens rifts in space and calls forth Ator's Fist and an array of powerful offensive magic to crush his enemies. His control over space and time also grants him the ability to reduce the cooldown of specific skills and to move short distances, regardless of the obstacles in his path.

His unique abilities will allow Adventurers to experiment with his skill combinations and find unique ways to gain the upper hand in different combat situations. Lastly, Sage’s class-specific trait grants him access to the ancient Hystria Ruins and Aakman Temple without the required entry items.

“With this class, we specifically aimed to depict a figure that is the archetype of the Ancients and would capture the attention of our North American and European Adventurers,” said Jaehee Kim, the Executive Producer for the Black Desert franchise at Pearl Abyss. “For the first time ever in Black Desert‘s history, Sage will be playable in North America and Europe before any other region and will have his Succession available at launch. We hope you'll have tons of fun with this unique class!”

Since the service transfer, Black Desert Online has seen a 225% boost in daily active users and a 2335% increase in new players. Black Desert Online is currently holding the #1 position within Steam’s MMORPG genre and is seeing the highest overall player numbers since launch.

Adventurers will not be able to access accounts that have not been transferred by this date. Unprecedented rewards and a 1,000% Hot Time event are also available during this period, so any wayward Adventurers can complete the game data transfer HERE and gear up for this special class launch!
