Black Desert opens new servers before headstart

Daum has posted its very last dev diary and notes before the launch of Black Desert’s head start. The big news is that the studio is adding an additional pair of servers to the planned four, one for each region: Croxus for Europe and Uno for North America. Here are the other highlights:

  • If you don’t already have the game, you can buy it and download it under your account. If you have the closed beta 2 client, you can just update it. That patch is under 1GB.
  • Preorder items are claimable under your account only after you’ve logged in and created a character. Event rewards aren’t claimable until March 3rd – same place.
  • Daum does have a plan for spawning mobs for the inevitable initial noob rush clusterfudge.
    Costumes in the cash shop have been split into two batches to separate functional kit from vanity outfits.
  • Prices for costume sets have been reduced, and Daum will run a large sale on pets and costumes from March 3rd to 14th.
  • The party loot system introduced to Korean servers will be live for us too.

Don’t forget to weigh in on Massively OP’s community poll about which server you’ll be playing on!

Black Desert Online, where PVE’ers go to die.  No thanks to gankfest games.

And there are a ton of games that have a similar system you describe. This game decided to try something different.

I suppose you are correct, but you can’t exactly lock a character up for 25 years in a game. There is punishment in the game for killing. Just not that level

eekamouse Neo_Wolf Yep. FFA PvP is dumb. Turns into nothing but a gankfest.

Objective based factional PvP is the way to go.

Daemonknight200  But yet its not immersion breaking to be able to rob and kill people with no consequence?

If the armor has boosts on it, it’s class armor, not cosmetic armor.  Let’s hope the lines don’t become blurred in any more games due to BDO.

I find factions more immersion breaking. I can’t rob this guy cause he’s my countryman? If only life were like that. Not that this game is mimicking real life in any way. But I find the “anyone can jump me” situation adds to excitement. Most people aren’t going to grind for hours just do they can lose that to kill you. The ones that do will be few.

pepinocantador I wish i had this self control when it comes to new mmo’s. I already
bought it and now I’m reading that it’s always on pvp, I’d rather be
able to control when i’m flagged.
Yes i know you can
research, get into beta’s, that’s smart stuff to do. What I’ve always
loved is to walk into new games, mmo’s especially knowing as little or
nothing at all about it, it’s part of the lure, and wonderment.

Probably
goes back to the day when you had to go to the store and pick a game
knowing nothing at all and no options to research it only info was on
the box. I’ve had real bombs, but sometimes you hit that gem, like when i
picked up this weird game titled Half Life on a whim at Walmart.
My
first mmo was Asheron’s Call 2, not EQ, or UO, or Meridian i had some
friends in them but i had zero interest, i loved FPS single player
games. I understand now, but at the time when my friend was telling me
he was so pumped that he and his brother got a house right next to each
other in UO didn’t really make me excited, lol.
Finally i
wanted to try out this mmo “thing” so i decided on Asheron’s Call 2, it
was brand new, and knew virtually nothing about.I
remember a friend who was only into single player games too asking me
what is it like? First, I wanted him to get it so badly i was going to
buy him a copy, i told him its like going to Disney Land and that other
games are only little town carnivals, i couldn’t explain it all i knew
it was the most awesome gaming experience I’ve ever known and still is
to this day, you know first mmo stuff, i’m sure i don’t need to go into
all those details we’ve all had that first love.
