Black Desert, a new MMO that’s still in closed beta, is a gorgeous-looking game that I’ve just had the privilege to discover. Developed by Korean company Pearl Abyss, Black Desert will deliver a variety of experiences inside of its sandbox atmosphere including open-world combat, castle sieges, and real estate opportunities that will allow a limited amount of houses to be bought by players. The game itself looks beautiful and definitely “next-gen,” which becomes obvious in the latest character creation video.
The attention to detail is astonishing, especially to someone like me who revels in character customization. Unfortunately, the closed beta is only available to select players in Korea, however, it has apparently been stated that an English version will eventually become available. When that will actually happen is another story. For now, though, it’s nice to be able to learn about a MMO that could eventually have the potential to overpower hyped MMO experiences such as the newly released Elder Scrolls Online.
If only my PC could actually play games like this…
