The advent of Black Desert‘s first English-language closed beta test does not mean that the wait for the game is nearly over, since the testing process will take some time. But it does mean that if you’ve been waiting and longing for the chance to play the game in English, you can do so today. You can log in, create a character, and start exploring. If you’ve been waiting for the game, it’s like an early Christmas present.
If you’re a bit overwhelmed by the thought of all that exploration or just want to earn some prizes, there’s also a small contest being held for those with an expert grasp of the character creator. Make a character that looks like your Facebook profile photo and you could be one of 30 winners. So now would be a good time to change your Facebook profile picture to something other than your cat if you’d like to win.
