There is no way in the world to know when the second closed beta for a localized Black Desert will take place, although the first is planned for December. Why can’t you know? Because it’s all up in the air and depends wholly upon the localization process. There’s a lot of text to translate before the game is ready for wider testing and release. That’s an important takeaway from a recent set of community questions answered by the official sources.
Players who aren’t interested in playing any of the starter classes at launch will be able to reserve names and such for the post-launch classes; however, only the launch classes will have access to the pre-order costumes and such. There are also changes planned from the game’s native client for the first closed beta, and a later reply confirms that the game will feature very dark nights (you can check that out in a video just below). Fans will have to keep waiting for more news about the game’s release, but the first beta test should be firing up next month.
