Black Desert Online, from developers Pearl Abyss, is a combat-focused high-fantasy MMORPG. It is available on Steam for PC and Microsoft Store for Xbox One. The game was initially released in 2015 and since has remained one of the most popular MMO games on the market. That fact has lead to the creation of the console version, that was released in 2019.
The game also was remastered recently. The remastered version is available at a very affordable price, and it also has a free trial.
The developers describe BDO as a sandbox, living-world MMORPG, and it provides a vast world to play in. The gameplay is fast-paced and combat-focused. The game also has a deep class system, trading, and phenomenal character customisation.
This game is considered one of the most attractive MMORPG’s on the market, set in a picturesque high-fantasy setting that extends to the weapons and enemies. Most notably, the customisation of the appearance of your character is second to none. You can spend hours tweaking every scale of your character's face, body and hair. The BDO also has unique and varied classes, and that makes your gameplay and combat style just as excellent as your appearance.
The gameplay varies completely between classes, but all of them have a clear focus on fast-paced combat. The game has quests to direct you through your journey and levelling. Mastering your abilities and skills with each class takes time and effort.
As well as the excellent combat style, there are also more casual and passive elements in the form of ten 'living skills' such as crafting, fishing and farming, which provides 'professions' for characters. Your capital and the profession you choose are both essential parts of the game, and there is an economic system within the game.
The lore provides the backdrop to this game. It also gives the basis for the PvP experience, because the different regions of this world have fought at war in recent years. Once you get to a high enough level (40), you get the opportunity to activate the Player vs Player mode. In PvP, you can attack or be attacked by another online user.
The game has an "enabled-disabled" system of PvP. It means that if you want to fight other players, and if you choose to attack someone who did not enable his PvP, you will lose your karma points. If you have lost too many karma points, you will attract guards and other players to attack you.
Black Desert Online is an MMORPG that is the best for people who want to play a good-looking, combat-focused RPG, and have plenty of time to level up and develop their character.
There are 17 classes in the game at the moment, including standard RPG roles such as Wizard, Ranger and Warrior, and more unique and exciting ones, such as Kunoichi, Tamer and Musa. Seven of the classes are male, and ten are female. Every character has its unique game-style and stats.
