'Black Desert Online' Sees 300% Increase In New Players

by Rainier on July 8, 2021 @ 8:45 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.

Pearl Abyss announced Black Desert Online has seen an over 300% increase in new and returning daily players, thanks to new content updates, season server, and sales promotions. As a result the popular game also reached the number one position on Steam within the MMORPG category.  

This achievement is seen as a result of the combined effects of recent events and updates; the recent 2021 Heidel Ball, a global online community event held on June 19, was viewed by more than half a million global fans. The new Corsair class and Summer Season servers were also updated across the world simultaneously, and a 7-day free trial is available on the official websiteto welcome new Adventurers to the world of Black Desert Online

Since her launch, the new class Corsair has received much acclaim for her lively characteristics and bold background story. Adventurers are also enjoying her unique skills, which include the ability to move at high speed across water and attack with great tidal waves. 

In addition, the Summer Season has been assisting Adventurers with growing their characters quickly. This year’s season server is relatively easier to play due to the addition of a new simplified main questline, Party Monster Zones, and the new Season Character Transfer System, which allows you to transfer your Season Character status, and combat/skill EXP. With the system you can change the class of your Season Character without any penalty. If you change your mind while in the season server and want faster growth with a different character, the transfer system can help you!   

Along with these new updates, the Black Desert Online team will continue to listen to the voices of Adventurers and make efforts to reflect their feedback in the game.
