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 as part of Black Desert’s roadmap that the game will receive next-gen console support for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in the future.

Pearl Abyss also revealed today that Black Desert Online’s new Season Plus (Season+) server is now available for PC players and that it will launch for console players on October 13. This new season will offer various revamped benefits that will help Adventurers grow their characters more efficiently.

Season+ is a bolstered season server which has undergone several improvements since the previous season by implementing feedback from the Black Desert community. Season Servers in Black Desert allow adventurers to level their characters more quickly and efficiently than in regular server channels. In this Season+ server, Adventurers can complete their Season pass and Black Spirit pass, which will award them with Weapon Exchange Coupons.  Enhancement chances for Tuvala gear and accessories have been greatly improved and additional valuable rewards will be provided for completing main quests.

Beginning September 29, Black Desert Online will launch the new Growth pass, greatly increasing the ease in which players can enhance their gear. There will be new ways to upgrade certain gear to the highest levels after graduating from the Season+ server that will help adventurers as they progress through various in-game challenges and content. 

To celebrate the arrival of Season Plus, new players on PC can earn a free Black Desert Online Novice Edition by playing the free trial and leveling one of their characters to level 50. To make things easier the 7-day free trial will be extended to 14 days from September 15 to October 6. Furthermore, players who reach lvl 56 and finish the Awakening quest and/or Succession quest will enter a raffle that can award 1 of 200 available Legendary Bundles, each of which holds 250 USD/EUR value of in-game items.
