Of course, fighting with each other can be a kind of fun, enjoy the free PK as you want. Now let’s see the gameplay video showed by the developers below:
Q: As the latest news goes as Black Desert will come to west by the Korean publisher Daum, and they will set up office in NA/EU. Our gamers are really excited about the news, and we are wondering why Pearl Abyss makes this decision?
Brian: Choosing Daum as the western publisher is a cogitative decision by Pearl Abyss. Because Daum has already got their plan to enter North American and European market, and they have set up a NA/EU studio. Black Desert is their first business in NA/EU and we believe that they will try their best to publish Black Desert and bring western gamers the best gaming experience.
Q: Our readers are very eager to play Black Desert, could you tell us when will Black Desert come to these enthusiastic players? Will there be anything new in Black Desert NA/EU for our players? What're the differences between NA/EU server and Korea server?
Brian: About the progress of NA/EU server, we can tell you that the translation and localization of Black Desert NA/EU is underway. Korean sever has just finished CBT2 and will kick off CBT3 in September and Open Beta in November. Then we will begin the alpha and closed betas for NA/EU server after that, we plan to start Black Desert NA/EU CBT1 in early 2015. Our visit to ChinaJoy is exactly aimed for business with top Chinese publishers. So NA/EU server's launch schedule will definitely be earlier than the CN server.
Black Desert is based on medieval Europe, and we think it matches NA/EU players' culture. And contents of Black Desert NA/EU won't be altered much. But we'll alter it based on NA/EU players' suggestions and demands.
