Black Desert answers questions on localization and release

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.

Loyheta sukumei Yes it is PvP centric. Yes people are waiting for a PvP game and have been for 10+ years. And yes, the PvE is just there to pad out of the PvP experience and would be considered horrible for PvE players.
If this doesn’t appeal to you, just excuse yourself from the game like we PvPers have for an inane amount of years. It is however, a really really good RP experience if you want to do that.

Loyheta Dookii This is sadly always the case in mmo’s. Myself i have never seen it any different. Dungeons however can differ vastly between MMO’s. Age Of Conan has very creative instances as does WoW but then you have games like Final fantasy with horrible dungeons and aparently black desert wich is a shame because i was/am quite interested in it.

Dookii Loyheta I’ve heard about the open world bosses … but I hear they are mindless tank and spanks.

sukumei Loyheta Well if everything is centered on PvP I probably won’t end up getting it. Hard to think of a reason not to get a B2P game but being pvp-centric would be one of them.

XanadoX Loreins Shamancard From what i’ve heard the bonuses on the costumes are minimal . Not nearly enough to break pvp. Not saying im happy about it, and its sstill in talks about removing that comepletely, but its not game breaking. Xp pots aint a big deal. You have those in GW2 and no one complained about them. Yes, you may take long for CHOOSING to not pay an extra £3-5 but then that is your choice for choosing the not paying them more route. You cant have your cake and eat it. If people arent willing to choose p2p models then they need to make other ways of making money. Yes its b2p so you are spending some money, but what did you expect?  Had it been f2p you would have a premium service which would then give you more vigor points and pots from the cash shop. The vigor pots are only on the KR and RU version BECAUSE its a f2p game. Being b2p means the comminuty has more say in what they want and what they dont. People dont want the pots, people are voicing it, they are listening.

Damonvile scathson The premise is the same, but from what i’ve read they are staying away from pots that increase your amount that can be bought from the cash shop like AA and that there is no premium service therefore everyone is at the same amount and limit. The system is fine if there is no way to pay for more. It is meant to be strategic ass it is used to buy trade routes and borrow items from npcs. Its good when not ruined by greed…

Shamancard B2P circa 1980 was very good. IMO, in 2015, almost always the main difference between b2p and f2p is $60.  But if people (which in the spirit of the holidays replaces the original hipsters) will pay $60 or w/e before starting their f2p game, then why not take their money?

Loreins Shamancard So If I pay 1000 $ then I will always have to win you.
“if you want to have those advantages just pay more. Game Developers need money for create new content, they dont work for free.”

and so on….
