Black Desert Online’s much-anticipated roadmap was revealed during the Black Desert FESTA event this past weekend. Pearl Abyss, the Korean developer and publisher of the acclaimed MMORPG, shared an exciting lineup of new content for this summer, including a 600-player PvP, Maegu’s class Awakening, the Serpent Boss Imoogi, and more.
The FESTA event was hosted in Suwon, South Korea, and included special performances inspired by Land of the Morning Light, the game’s critically acclaimed expansion. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Good Home Nursery children’s center in Anyang City, South Korea.
Epic-scale PvP Content: War of the Roses
The War of the Roses, a new 600-player PvP Conquest War, promises unprecedented scales of combat every fortnight. In this novel war mode, players do not need to build fortresses or fortifications but can concentrate solely on battle strategy. In addition, gear stats will not limit participation, providing an equal ground for all adventurers.
New Serpent Boss: Imoogi
Pearl Abyss introduces Imoogi, a new boss set to strike terror in the Black Shrine within the Land of the Morning Light region. Drawing inspiration from Korean folklore, the boss battles will see players trying to dodge Imoogi’s strikes while focusing on the altar in the battlefield’s center.
Arena of Solare Season 3
The third season of the 3v3 PvP Arena of Solare returns with new battlegrounds in Land of the Morning Light, including Shimnidae Forest and the reed field of Gowun Plateau.
Maegu Class Awakening
The Maegu Awakening, launched on July 5, allows players to use her sister’s deadly fan and launch wide-ranging fiery attacks on enemies.
Mythical Doom, a new take on the “Hell Horse” concept, features a striking mane of blue flames and twin horns. Its special skills include Shadow of Hellfire, Infernal Sprint, and Infernal Legion, enhancing both transportation and combat capabilities for players.
New Items and Realms
The event also revealed new items and realms, including Dehkia’s Lantern, which awakens powerful monsters and enriches loot rewards, and the Noble Land Ulu Kita, a mysterious and dangerous realm located beyond Mediah.
Sea Palace Summer Event
The annual summer event, slated to start on July 26, receives a Korean folklore-inspired makeover this year, inviting adventurers to a minigame-filled underwater palace.
With a host of new content and updates lined up for the summer, Black Desert Online continues to offer a captivating and dynamic gameplay experience for both new and seasoned adventurers. The MMORPG community can eagerly look forward to engaging in epic battles, exploring mysterious realms, and enjoying thrilling events in the coming months.
